Green Man


I love the idea of the Green Man. I’ve played around with the idea before with these green man tikis. I know that lots of people will look at him and think, Jolly Green Giant, but no, he’s a green man and I am sticking to that!



I loved using this variegated pearl cotton for embroidering his belt and I even found a leaf button! I used more of the variegated thread for his boot laces.

I love this dusty purple color- it always makes me think of an early morning mist.


Well, what can I say about the Nashville show. It was not my best show ever. As a result, I have LOTS of great work in my Etsy shop! So, good news, bad news ;) Also, I brought 2 of these babies to work on/demonstrate and I got them both almost finished. Hurray for that!




After I got back last week, there’s the giant pile of catching up. The regular life ones- laundry, groceries, sleeping, and then the biz ones- putting the show stuff away for now, shipping, emails, listing all those things onto etsy! Then another day trip away for a memorial service. But now I am ready to get back to work.


I feel like this is a year for me to try new things (example- different shows) and I now have pieces in 2 galleries- The Society of Arts and Crafts in Boston and also True Lily, a shop that my doll-making friend, Nancy Wiley, is opening in Canandaigua, New York. Of course, the thing is, it is always the year to try new things. You never get it all figured out, right?!
