Man in a Kilt

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 finished this fellow on Wednesday night before the show, took his photos on Thursday morning, we took the subway down to the show together, and he found a new home on Friday morning!

CraftBoston was excellent- my best show ever! I will post some booth pics in a few days. I still have a lot of things available and I am working hard today to get them into my etsy shop. If I ship by Wednesday, package should certainly arrive (in US) by Christmas.

Celestial Tattoos

It is always exciting for me when I find a new fabric to use for tattoos. Especially if it is very different but still hopefully gets the tattoo idea across. This fabric had prints of vintage-looking celestial maps.

I love how the planetary orbital path looks like an extra set of eyes.
