She is adorable! I have been looking forward to using this Liberty fabric, ever since I bought it last Spring. It is perfect colors for and orange fox girl.

She has an incredibly soft and fuzzy cashmere sweater to wear on top.

Mushroom Hunter Fox

A well-fed mushroom hunter-

He is dressed and ready for an afternoon in the forest. He has his backpack/collecting bag on his back.

What is in his bag? So far it has been a good day-

He is made of a reclaimed wool sweater and as is common with many of the knits, he ended up being quite a chubby fellow once he was stuffed and finished. I love the variety of shapes and sizes that I get by using a range of fabrics.

Lumberjack fox

I’ve been imagining this fellow for a long while so when I got back to the foxes, he was the first that I wanted to finish up.

He had to wear the lumberjack classic red and black buffalo plaid, of course!

And there is his axe, stored in his backpack.

All his clothing and accessories are removable. He has his hatchet, a pear, and a handkerchief, stowed in the backpack.

News Post

I mostly remember to blog when I finish a doll but I have news to share!

11-5-swaddled babies - 1

I will be teaching Swaddled Babies in LA, California at French General. It will be a 2-day class over the weekend of March 3 and 4. All the info and signing up is here. I sure hope the class is a go because I can hardly think of anything better at the end of a Boston winter than a trip to warm climes and palm trees!

Other big news- I have been accepted to show at the Smithsonian Craft Show in Washington, DC at the end of April 2018. I am so thrilled that I am going to get to be part of this amazing show! Actually, I’ve got several shows lined up at this point. I will be doing CraftBoston Holiday again this year and next year too (Holiday 2018). And in August, I will be back out in California, San Francisco this time, for the American Craft Council Show.

I am so excited about what I’ve got lined up for next year. I really didn’t know what to expect when I started applying for the fine Craft shows. I talked to friends and got recommendations and did my applications. I got rejected from the first 2 and thought, Oh well, my work isn’t a good fit (because, of course, that’s what I was really thinking before I started any of these applications!). When I was accepted to the ACC show, I was thrilled and surprised and now I start down a new path. Exciting times!

Big Man Merman

A new merman with skeletons. This month has been a lot of men with skeleton tattoos!

I got a new IPhone last weekend and am blown away by the amazing camera. I took photos with the phone and also with my Canon EOS Rebel and the phone pics were so much better. So, some of these photos were taken with the new phone and someĀ  with my SLR.
