I finished up gnome 4 and 5. These guys are bigger then the first three at 19 ” tall and considerably fatter!
There are a few more picture here on Flickr. I am planning to put together a photo gallery of all these dolls to try to sell them. Soon, I hope… The smaller gnomes will be $65 and the larger ones, $80.
I’ve finished 2 more 15 inch gnomes-
I am working on 2 more that are bigger- 19 inches tall.
made from recycled sweater- inside and out. I stuffed the baby with an a wool sweater that wouldn’t felt or full or whatever you want to call it.

I was down in Connecticut again over the weekend. Frosty Sunday morning. I went to the Red Cross’s Antique and Collectibles Show- I try to go every year. Look what I got-
My excuse is that I’ll be able to use it to display my dolls when I go to a show- we’ll see how that works out!
Also- look who has a new website- Susan Fosnot. Check it out!
My paper doll from Ana Ventura arrived from Portugal yesterday- Oh Joy! I love it!
I was thrilled to see that she is one of the images incuded in Ana’s Christmas card set… which I have, of course, ordered also… so I still have goodies to look forward to in the mail.
Here is a better picture (Ana’s own) of this beautiful artwork.
her hair is felted wool roving- blue dreadlocks
and here she is swimming
I found this tea towel when going through the stuff at my parents’ house. I liked it, so put it aside. Later I noticed the signature and looked it up on ebay- sure enough there is a whole lot of Tammis Keefe textiles. I love these!
I love the caligraphic look of this one-
oh no! I’m suppose to be clearing stuff out, not finding new things I want!
Yesterday I got together with Abby from While She Naps. This is a first for me- meeting someone in person, who I’ve connected with through blogging. It was great! She brought me this wonderful little owl-
and she went through my piles of too much fabric and went home with 2 bags… I am hoping she will come back soon and take more! I got to see her sweet new little doll- I loved the patchwork technique and excellent color choices.
We talked about blogging, what it has added to our lives, which ones we read, the people we have connected with and why. Things we’ve learned, what you can or can’t say in emails or online. It is so great to have a person I can visualize, connected to a blog I read.
