I think this is mauve? Or plum but not so blue? I struggle with color names.
2 faces, 2 swans.
I found the perfect button.
I made it through a very busy Thanksgiving week and I’m back at work. The first of a few Tattooed Ladies-
She is made from the Day of the Dead Nativity fabric.
This is the last of the lady dolls for now. I finished her a few days ago but the weather has been so wet and gloomy that I wasn’t able to take any photos until today.
Her hair isn’t just black: it has a textured weave which I love.
Close-up of the kitties-
A black cat tail wraps around the back.
And here is all the ladies, enjoying each others’ company.
And Happy Thanksgiving to all my US friends! I hope all of your food is delicious and all your company is cheerful!
And more (even brighter) orange hair.
This photo (below) seems to get the color closest to correct, on my computer anyway.
One more lady left on the table to finish.
I have sooooo much orange wool because of the fox dolls which = lots of orange wool scraps. And that equals a flock of orange birds.
I’m back to playing with my bags of soft cashmere bits that make such sweet and soft flowers.
This one is definitely not inspired by nature out my window. We’ve had a hard frost and the garden is over for the year. And tonight, we are suppose to have our first snow.
I will be playing with some more butterfly designs because these were fun!
Plain on the back-
The Fall has been beautiful this year in my neighborhood. Walking through all the colors inspired me to make this lady.
Lots of variegated embroidery threads got used :-)
She is the Queen of the Night!
All the little details that I love making!
She has an extra star on each arm.
Topiary in the night.
What exactly are his tattoos telling us about him?!
He also has a cow’s head on his shoulder.
I have a big pile of ladies to work on next. Tattooed ladies and lady pillow dolls. It is always fun to get on to the next thing!
