I've been remiss in posting and have not posted any thing art related in a while. I haven't been totally without artistic ambition though. Angel pin dolls were the subject of December's Pin Doll Alley swap and I made a pin doll for Heera. I am posting a picture of the Pin Doll Angel that I made but sadly, I still have to take a picture of the beautiful Angel that Heera made for me - so that will be up at a later time.
I am working on a crocheted afghan right now - really off pace with doll making, or polymer clay but a needed change I think. Change is good and crocheting lets my mind wander and relax. I think my next project will be some crazy quilting which I do in smaller scale than large piano scarves - but I really enjoy the fabrics and the stitches. I'm thinking of incorporating some of the crazy quilting into my next doll project. I've done that before and I always enjoy the outcome, since it adds such a beautiful depth and dimension.
This is a picture of the Angel that I sent to Heera:
- I am a mother and a grandmother. I was married to my best friend, Ted for over 17 years. I am now a widow - but have many wonderful memories. I am an incredibly proud parent and grand parent. I am very blessed. I live with five frisky cats, one extra large swim-e fish aptly named - Fish. Fish is a very old member of the family too, like over 18 years. There is also a five year old crazy dog named Wolowitz in residence - kind of in the middle of nowhere - but I kinda like it that way too. I worked for a tax department which I don't find at all interesting or full filling and just a blur in my mind now. My main time soaking love, outside of the family and friends that are very dear to me; is creating and making artfully crafted objects that warm people's hearts and tickle their souls. Who could ask for more than that?
