Another Mid-Century cup-
And a diner classic-
Here is seven, all together-
I have more but will have to wait for the rain to stop to photograph them. Fingers crossed for some good weather!
I am back to work. I need to get back to posting though, since I am beginning to get a backlog of these Tiny Worlds.
Firstly though, I’d like to thank everyone who reached out to me with condolences- I really can’t convey how much it meant to me. I know that most of us don’t know each other in person, but I was truly touched and comforted by your words.
Anyway, pincushions 4 and 5-
My desk has been covered with Tiny World pincushion parts and materials for the last week or so. Unfortunately, I had to leave that all behind on Tuesday to go to Connecticut because my Mom died. When someone is 100 and has not recognized me for years, I guess dying can never be called unexpected, and yet, wow, all the feelings and processing. And getting out of my little nest/comfort zone/studio, into a whirlwind of family and decision making. Goodbye Mom ♥
I’ll be posting what I had finished and photographed right before I left on Tuesday.
Well first, Happy Mother’s Day to all who are celebrating! And now some snowy owls or maybe I should call them owls with no ears…
Both of these owls are incredibly soft, made with cashmere, angora, and alpaca, and I am sure some wool too.
This one has eye brows.
And this one isn’t terribly snowy at all!
Here are his/her grey and white striped wings-
The last thing I want to mention that I love about LA is the food- we do tacos, tacos, and tacos. Also fresh fruit and veg- we had strawberries from a farmers market like I have never tasted in my life!
And lastly, I’ll mention the Getty Villa. I enjoyed the collection although a big part of the museum is currently closed. Loved these weird bird, fish, lady creatures.
What comes next? I am doing the Coolidge Corner Arts Festival, Saturday June 3. I will be working toward that, right up to the last minute I’m sure. Tomorrow, some new finished pieces!
