Elfalfa the Shelf Elf

I’m getting ready for Calabogie Artsfest next weekend and have made some elves.

These  little imps add a little colour and whimsy to any decor  and provide a cheerful atmosphere as the days get shorter and we get closer to winter.

Little Faces

After a few false starts I finally got some pin dolls made.

They are made of cloth and painted with pastel pencils.  I “made” some of the hair, the rest is made from various trims, a piece of lambs skin and some fur.

Fresh as a Daisy

I am busy getting ready for Fibrefest which is September 13 and 14.   I will be participating as part of Go Figure with my friend Edwina Sutherland.

I was planning on making some pin dolls but they weren’t working out as I had hoped, so I started playing around with Photoshop  and ended up doing another fused applique.  It was supposed to be simple and quick and it was until I decided that it needed some hand embroidery.
