A very very serious fellow.
He’s got an angel and George Washington! Also a fancy glass button.
I gave him a widow’s peak.
Urns on his arms.
That’s all the men for now. I’ve got a pile of parts to sew up before I can finish anymore. On to other things for a bit.
He’s got a little curl in his hair-
Goddesses, cherubs, birds and so much more!
An antique shell button and lots of tiny starts on his pants-
Here is the other goddess-
This silver-haired fellow brings back the beards.
More Day of the Dead skeletons.
A close-up of the skeletons, his belt and button, and the great print on his pants.
This fellow has it all!
Fancy red boots too :)
And the back hair view-
Lots of skeletons having all the fun.
Woohoo! Look at those radishes! All organic vegetables, I’m sure.
I’m continuing to work on pieces that were part-way finished before I left for Washington at the end of April. It makes me feel as though I am actually accomplishing something when I am being distracted by lots of other things like the garden and clothes-making. There are never enough hours in the day.
A very complicated scene on his chest (and arms and back).
Blue eyes, blue kilt.
Dancing ladies and gentlemen.
A removable kilt- buttons and inside snap.
Ahem, what is he looking at?!
This is a very fun fabric with all the partying skeletons.
I’m needing a little green in the middle of January.
I got inspired to give him a head garland by this photo in Arcadia Britannica, a book of modern British folklore portraits.
He has a leaf bead and a variegated embroidered vine belt.
I am doing a big clean-up in my studio and also trying to get some pieces moving along. Where I get tired of one activity, I switch over to the other. So, both are going slowly. Studio cleaning and rearranging is a big chore but I always find forgotten treasures and that makes it SO worth it. Anyway, HeH! I got one finished!
He is a mustache man.
So many skeletons.
I love finding the perfect antique button.
And yes, Christmas is over. Both the tree and my man are out on the porch.
