And a cow!

Traditional toiles can be so much fun to work with. I love finding the details and making them the focal point of one of my people. We had a sofa with toile slipcovers when I was a kid. I remember my mom pointing out the scenes but all I saw was a mass of red and white. I think I was visually overwhelmed.

Nautical Big Man





The leaves have been falling like heavy snow and we have drifts on the sidewalks.


It’s that time before a show where I stop posting things into my etsy shop because I need to build up inventory. If I post something that you are interested in, send me an email or contact me on any of my other social medias and I can give you details. I’m always happy to sell of course!

I have been working on some ornament designs but it goes slowly and gets frustrating and I just want to finish something! But, I have bins with sewn up but not finished inventory so this fellow got finished with a satisfied sigh from me.

Here is a detail where you can see his belt. I embroidered on top of the rick rack and added an embroidered white dot on the belt tape.

I am behind in posting all the dolls that ended up in Brooklyn with me. I am posting this fellow today and I will post about the NY trip soon. I am working on getting all the new dolls (that didn’t sell) into my Etsy shop but it will probably be a trickle all week. I got back home last night and my to-do list is enormous.

I finished this doll in the hotel on Friday. He was mostly done and I couldn’t bear to leave him behind.

And here he is, hanging up in the booth-
