Busy, busy me :o)

I have been crafting, gluing, stitching, and embroidering up a storm lately. :o) I have several things to share with you.

I finished the embroidery for the Cottage Tree basket. I am in the process of putting it all together, but here are pictures of the finished embroidery.


This is a closeup of the cottage. It will be the top of the basket.


This will be the pin cushion...


The scissor case...

And the scissor fob...

I finished my Sunflower collage that I started during the Brett Barker workshop. I think it will make a very cool art quilt, and I have a definite vision in my head. This is the plan I will be working from. I went to kinkos and blew this up to 24 inches long. We shall see how it turns out. :o)



And I also made this cute little goddess doll the first of the month. She was lots of fun to make, but I am going to have to enlarge my pattern if I make some more. Her arms and torso are too small; it was very difficult to turn and then stuff her. But I love her, and Megan has claimed her. :o)

This is her front...
And this is her back...

Much fiber fun!

Too cool! Even though my pieces are miniature, I've never had the patience for the tiny stitchings.

Oh how wonderful! I can not wait to see the basket and the goddess doll rocks. :-)
