Off with Their Heads

I’ve been working on a new doll.  I haven’t gotten very far as I’ve been trying to get a certain head shape in cloth.  I’ve done several versions making little changes to each successive model.

I partially needle sculpted one – it helps to round out the pointy chin.

 

 

 

I have one more ready to stuff.  I’m hoping it’s the one!

Forest Fawn

This is a fused applique I recently finished for the Out of the Box colour challenge.

Forest Fawn

It is from a photograph I took of a fawn that, with its mother regularly visited my cottage in Calabogie.  The deer are quite used to humans and don’t run off as long as there is a bush or  a tree (and sometimes just a long piece of lumber) between you and them and you don’t get too close.

I used machine stitches on the tree trunk and branches for shading then coloured between the stitches using Derwent Inktense Blocks. The leaf detail is hand embroidered.

Avenue of Birches

I usually see this landscape from the opposite direction on my daily walk.  To view it from this angle requires an extra hill to climb but it’s worth it.
