fox girl in green

I got one of the fox girls finished!

She has a knitted lace collar- I bought the lace when I went to the Vintage Textile Show at the beginning of the month. Hurray for buying and then actually using versus hoarding, which is very easy for me to do. She has some flowers in her paw.

And, the stuff in her purse-

I am sorry that the photo doesn’t show the little button which is an antique black glass butterfly button.

She is #4.

When I sorted through my wool fabrics last winter and came across this orange herringbone, it seemed perfect for a kitty. Then, when she was ready to dress, I discovered the real challenge. The bold herringbone was very difficult to match up with clothing colors and patterns. It all worked out though- I love my sweet butterfly moon kitty!

time for some kitties again

Back in March, I made up a group of kitties with sewed on clothing. Now, I am working on a group with removable clothing plus accessories, just like the foxes. As usual, I thought, No problem! Just like the foxes! – But no. Lots of little tweaks were needed with the patterns. I now have a rather large pile of clothing rejects that will hopefully find another kitty or fox where they will work. Anyway, here is Kitty #1!

She is wearing a dress made from Heather Ross designed fabric, a soft corduroy jacket, and a silk ribbon at her ear.

Here is a close-up of her bag-

Big man in browns

It isn’t really obvious from the pics but he is lots of browns- his boots, the toile, his hair.

The tattoos on his chest are a fox hunt I think, with men, horses and dogs. I like the 3 faces here-

The back is a river scene.

And here he is on the porch. You can see that I am putting out some of my pots that have semi-hardy plants. It is beginning to feel like Spring even though there is still some snow piles around.
