He has a big horse on his chest, I think the whole toile picture might be a fox hunt.
I have a watch on ebay for my name so when someone lists one of my dolls, I get an email. There are several up there now- some really good ones! It makes me sad that my artwork didn’t find it’s forever home (like a pet, sorry but that is how I feel about them). Hopefully someone else can get a bargain and love them. Just put Mimi Kirchner into the search and hopefully that’ll work.
I love this toile- there is so much going on!
This toile is designed to look old and kind of faded (I believe?) and I love how it makes my fellow look older and as if he has already lived an interesting life.
Here is a close-up of his hair-
Excellent hot air balloon-
Yesterday we had snow and sleet, plus Patriots’ Day activities which included a road race, a reenactment of one of the first battles of the Revolutionary War, and a parade through town. Brrr. It is very strange to be working with the sound of muskets in the background! Today is Patriots’ Day and it is pouring down rain for the Boston Marathon. We have been in our house for 30 years now and this is the first Patriots’ Day that I can remember where there aren’t any daffodils blooming in front of my house yet. I saw a chart that showed we are 15 to 20 days late for Spring this year.
I will name him after Edward Gorey. He would fit right in to one of Gorey’s illustrations, don’t you think?
Arm details, more dressed-up skeletons.
This fellow is made from some over-dyed Laura Ashley fabric that I have had in my stash since the 70′s. Yes, it’s true, I never throw anything away. When I was last sorting through the fabric drawers and came across it, I realized it would make good medieval-looking tattoos.
We had a few days of Spring this week. It makes one hopeful.
I’ll be posting a group of tattooed people but none will be available until after the Smithsonian Craft Show. I am in full production mode, sewing like a demon if demons sew… I’m not so sure about that. Anyway, nothing available until May 1.
Red-haired cosmic man.
The last 2 for now are 2 lighthouses.
The ocean and snowy tiny worlds are rarer because I have to find the right kind of cup to put them in. Somehow, flower designs don’t work for me and they are what I find most when I am in the thrift store.
Forget-Me-Nots and Lily of the Valley decorate this cup.
This is a glass sugar bowl, I think? It came with a creamer which I will make into something another day.
