These two are #15 and #16 of this batch. Wow, that’s a lot! Also, they are the last of this group. I will be cleaning up my tiny world mess and start up on some new kind of mess next week!
I am getting to the end of these. I think (?) there will be just 2 more after this. Once I get going on a roll, it can be hard to stop but I am ready for something different.
I have been adding these to my Etsy shop as I go along. Most of then are in there now.
I made one of these a million years ago. I thought it was time to try again.
Here she is, up in her tower-
I liked this view because you can see the spiral walking path.
And a Red-haired Rapunzel-
Isn’t that cup gorgeous?!
Another top view.
I hope that all my US friends can get some relaxing in on this long weekend. I spent yesterday working in the garden and now everything hurts!
Two tropical islands to dream about.
I haven’t made any like this for a lot of years.
There are still more in the pipeline. Be back soon- as long as it isn’t dark and rainy and I can’t take pics!
I seem to be on a kick of imaginary vacation spots.
I’ve never made one like this before so a new adventure! Let’s go camping!
Next up in the pincushion world, what I’m dreaming about during these quarantimes. A getaway in the forest!
And #2 cabin choice for my imaginary vacation-
This cup is truly getting a new life because it has a major chip in the rim so could no longer function in it’s original purpose. I get a special delight when I transform a mug like this. I mean, it is so pretty! It’d be sad if it ended up in the trash.
Two fairy houses in a garden.
And here is a back view, if you are curious.
I think of these little cottages on a hill as the classic tiny worlds. Along the lines of the lovely illustrations in this book- The Little House by Virginia Lee Burton.
And here are 3, all together-
Hope you are having a good weekend. It is a rainy day here in Boston so I have the perfect excuse to stay in my studio and play.
I am working on a batch of these. I’m lucky that I have a box of cups in waiting since I haven’t been visiting any thrift stores lately.
A cup with violets-
And a cup with summer flowers-
Sheesh, I had to put something up since it’s been a month of no posts. What have I been doing? Well, not too terribly much. I’ve been working in the garden quite a bit. Besides that though, nothing that has added up to much. I am working on making patterns for ornaments/little felt creatures. I decided to start with the ornaments I designed for West Elm back at least 5 years ago now? I thought that would be an easy place to start- silly me! Everything takes forever these days. Anyway, this is what I’ve been working on-
I’ve been playing with sizes and adjusting patterns pieces. Slowly I will get them done… There is a boy and girl fox, a boy and girl raccoon, a lady squirrel, a moose fellow, and a bear fellow.
As always, I have been a little more active on Instagram but it has mostly been pics of my garden. I hope you all are stay healthy, safe, and sane.
