I'm still here

My apologies for not posting in such a long time!  We've had a perfect spring here in Southern California and it's really hard to be inside.  Here are a few things I have made since my last post.

So, I did a small mixed media collage that I gifted.

Making all sorts of upcycled Denim bags.  This one is made from a pair of overalls, and barkcloth.  The leather handles are from a old leather coat.  And since there were no holes I made some holes and then patched them.

I got a little side tracked with doing some Sun printing.  I took a piece of muslin and some watered down acrylic paint.  Painted my muslin and then laid a variety of flowers on top and the sun did the rest.

Then I ripped off a small section and did some FME.

And I have been very addicted to upcycling denim lately, so I used the decorated piece in my new upcycled denim bag. 

Lastley, here is a new trolls all sewn up and waiting to be stuffed.  This little troll will be the rider for the Field Mouse.  And I'm hoping to get working on it in the next few days. 

More soon!

Thanks for sharing how busy you have been. Allergies zapped my strength and cut me down so I envy your energy!
