It feels a little odd to be making a school girl dressed in wool and corduroy, with mittens and a scarf, when the calendar says June. Luckily, the weather has dipped and I was inspired to finish her up today.
Here are details of all her belongings-
Her school bag-
These two are the last for now.
I love topiary- And felt topiary is SO much easier to deal with than the living kind!
My studio needs a massive clean and so that is going to occupy at least some of my (US) holiday weekend. If you are having a long weekend, hope you are doing something fun!
I was away for some family graduation festivities, then back to too much computer and other non-studio work, but I finally was able to get to my studio and finish a few more Tiny Worlds.
The other Tiny Worlds are in my Etsy shop, these and 2 more that I need to photograph tomorrow, should be listed by the end of the day tomorrow.
This one is bigger than the cups- a bigger house and more trees too. It’s a little house in the woods. In a beautiful Portuguese bowl.
And here is a better photo of the front of the bowl-
Two more flowery cups.
This one is flowers, mid-century modern.
This one, classic transfer ware.
Teacups with flowers are most of the tea cups I can get. It works well with my fantasy gardens.
This very delicate teacup has what I think are sweet peas, but I gave it a topiary garden.
I was scheduled to do a Tiny World Pincushion class but we didn’t get enough people to run it. Timing is always a mystery when planning these things. When I am expecting to teach, I get out all my materials and get to work. That way I have fresh memories of the process. So, the result of teaching is always some new finished pieces. Whenever I get going on the Tiny Worlds, it is hard to stop!
and #2 which I think of as Cabin in the woods.
This is a longer and leaner version of the girl dolls I’ve been working on. The other ones are based on about 5 years old. This design is more of a 9 – 12 year old. The design is closer to the pattern I used in the past. This girl looks like a serious and smart school student- she’s all about math and graphic novels for fun. She loves school, unlike me as a kid.
Here she is without her coat. A red and white striped cashmere sweater- dreamy!
I am not usually drawn to purples but sometimes, there I go.
Here she is with her clothes off and all her things. Her body is dressed in “underwear” and her shoes and socks are all part of her legs.
Liberty cotton floral patterns- love them. I gave her a little shirt under her dress because her “underwear” was showing and I just didn’t like how that looked. She has a guaze-y silk kerchief and a wool felt purse. Her clothing looks late-Spring or Summery to me.
I have listed the other 2 girls into my Etsy shop and I hope to get this one listed by the end of today.
