Flower Lady Pillow doll 1

Big Flowers! It is dahlia season in my garden and they are beautiful this year! Somehow though, the ones that have thrived are all dark purple but I’m not complaining.

Cashmere knit, wool knit, wool felt, boiled wool, wool boucle- so many different fabrics and textures.

I meant to post her yesterday but I got my flu shot on Friday afternoon and that pretty much knocked me out for 24 hours. Thank goodness I am back to myself again today!

Butterfly Lady pillow doll

Lots of cashmere applique on this lady. Almost all of the embellishments are bits cut from cashmere sweaters. The boucle fabric that her dress is made of was fabric from my Mom’s stash. I will be working through her fabrics for the rest of my life!

Here are a lot of detail shots of the butterflies-

And here she is, sitting with her friend who I will post tomorrow.

I’m Doing Some Shows This Fall

Featured

I will be doing 2 in-person shows this Fall in Massachusetts. I will be at The Paradise City Arts Festival in Northampton MA October 9 – 11. And then I am showing at the Paradise show in Marlboro, MA, November 19 -21. All the info about the shows is HERE. I’d love to meet you if you can make it. These will be the first shows in almost 2 years and I am excited!

If you decide to come to the show, here is a link to get discounted tickets.

Here is a photo from the last show I did- November 2019!

Bright and Beautiful Baby

Often, when I am starting a new group of dolls, I go back to designs I have done previously to get inspired. I used this beautiful lady as an inspiration for this baby. I love how these colors work together.

The applique pieces (flowers and leaves) are all cashmere. So soft!

And here are 2 outside photos- doesn’t this baby look glorious next to the coleus!
