Embroidered Landscape

My doll club (All Dolled Up) and FAC (Figurative Artists Consortium) are planning a fibre art and doll making retreat in June.  We will be gathering at the local community college for a weekend of learning and sharing while having a lot of fun.  Most of us will stay in the residence as there will be lots to do in the evenings as well.

Several members of All Dolled Up  and some non-members are contributing items to the delegate bag that will be handed out to all who register.  I have made a number of embroidered fridge magnets that will be included in the delegate bags.

Each one is a little over 1 inch square.  They are all the same design but I have made several different colour versions.  They are machine embroidered.

I’m looking forward to the retreat; I know it is going to be a lot of fun.

Peter Pot Peeper

Last weekend, polymer clay and multi-media artist Maria Saracino visited my doll club, All Dolled Up, and gave us a workshop.

Guided by Maria we made “Peter Pot Peeper” on clay pots we had brought from home.  I made mine on a pot I  made years ago.





Maria suggested that I paint my little fellow green, which I did with pan pastels.
