The weather last weekend was perfect for a studio tour! Pleasantly warm. Very little Wind. The Eldorado Studio Tour that had been scheduled for last weekend (May 16 and 17) sadly didn't happen. When the event was cancelled back in March, my frantic scramble to get work finished tapered off! But, I could have been ready!
Finally, my website is fairly well organized. You can see the dolls and a few paintings there. I still need to work out some name and measure a few pieces. Please contact me if you have any questions about a piece.
Now I find that I need to catch up on some housekeeping chores and start to figure out what I would like to present at the studio tour next year!
"This Girl of Mine" is my tribute to mothers and their daughters everywhere! Happy Mother's Day!
This figure stands about 18" tall. She is made in my "flat head" style with a stuffed body sewn with hand painted fabrics and free motion machine quilting. I haven't made many (or any other) dolls that portray children. I continue to be amused my the little girl. She seems so reluctant to have Mom haul her out for an introduction. I enjoyed finding this piece when I was taking new pictures of everything.
The Eldorado Studio Tour had been scheduled for the weekend after Mother's Day, May 16 and 17. With the tour now cancelled, I made this date my goal to reorganize my website my and take pictures of all the new work. This seems to be harder than making the stuff in the first place! You can tune in on my progress by checking the "Studio Tour" page on my website. I still have a week to go!
This is just a note to follow up on the studio clean out project I wrote about earlier this spring. I no longer have to worry about the weird ugliness of my very last doll ever because I have thrown out or donated most of the possible components! Yah!
