Blue Fairy with Butterfly

I just finished a new doll. I thought it would be quick as she is only 4 1/2 inches sitting. However  the doll was a challenge as the parts were so small  the stuffing kept escaping from the openings.

She hasn’t told me her name yet.

How to Milk a Cow

When I was a teenager we had a cottage in the Eastern Townships in Quebec.  Our closest neighbours lived on a farm where we all learned how to milk a cow by hand.

This is my sister Donna who isn’t quite sure if she wants to do this.  The watercolour painting is based on a photograph taken by my dad.
