New mermaid

I have been working on a mermaid from the pattern Aquaria by Michelle Harrold. I played with the organdy burning on organza for the skirt and sleeves and flowers. She was fun to do. She has webbed hands!

Finished Colleen's Pattern!

Here is the doll that goes with the picture of the wires and fabric. She is called Snowflake/Spider Sprite by Colleen Babcock. I have been testing her for Colleen. She is the greatest doll. I really love this pattern.
Here is a close up of the face. It is so soft and wonderful! Don't you just love her snowflake hat!!
This is the back. You can see what I made with the wires! She is a hanging doll.

Crafts and stuff!

Here is an ATC (artist trading card) I made for a swap on CDA. I painted the card with watercolor pencils. I added glue cyrstals to the tail and glitter to the tail fluke and bra. The sand and ocean have no hole beads glued on top. I hope my partner likes her.

What is this???? Stay tuned as I am testing a pattern for Colleen Babcock!

Christmas projects

Here is August Challenge for Amanda's blog. It is a centerpiece tree made of wool felt. It has wool felt baubles and beads on it. It is on a wood pedestal and stand I painted red.

Here is a Giraffe I made in Christmas colors holding Christmas lights! LOL It is from a Mellie and Me pattern called Mrs. Perkins. The mane is fun fur yarn in shiny red. It really does shimmer!
Here is a 13" square mat I made with the rest of the squares I have given the grandkids to make their mats. Just had to sew them together. Lots of little squares!

Grandkids weekend

The grandkids were here for a sleepover weekend. We had lots of fun. My hubby does all the outside stuff with them as I don't do heat very well. They helped grandpa in the garden and then my grandson and hubby finished building the go-cart they had been working on. My grandson wanted to make a mat with tiny squares. I just happen to have a bag of 1 1/2 in squares that I gave him and granddaughter to design some tiny mats. The finished size of the squares is 1 inch. They put together the pattern and I sewed them up! We did this so Papa could nap for a while! LOL

Kassy, Calvin and Papa

The squares that I sewed together for grandkids. They are backed with fabric pillowcase style.
