It is March and I am surrounded by piles. Piles and piles of materials and dolls in progress. I have been benefiting from everyone doing their New Years clear out. I found tons of goodies at the thrift store and several friends have donated beautiful fabrics to my supply pile. Here are the thrift store goodies, deconstructed and washed, waiting to get put away.
I now have a whole pack of dogs waiting to get dressed. Here they are, stuffed and their noses and arms sewed on.
Now with faces-
And finally some are getting dressed. I am having to make all new patterns for their clothing which ends up being time consuming.
On my desk this morning-
Piles of fabrics (everywhere!) to audition.
Besides the dogs, I’ve also cut out and sewed up a lot of kitties.
Both of which will be coming after I get the puppies finished. So busy times around here but no finished pieces yet although soon I hope.
A girl and a boy yellow dog.
I think she has a little mouse look.
Oh my- angora ears! So so soft.
I’m back from Providence where I had a terrific weekend. (If I have time, I will do a separate post about it.) I tried to do a blog post from there but wasn’t able to and too distracted to try too hard. So here are a few more pieces that got finished before the show. Two boy dogs-
The dolls are back in the etsy shop, and I am adding the ones that I hadn’t listed yet. It might take a while!
This one is made out of all knits. The orange stretched differently from the blue which gave this pup a slightly backward-leaning posture that I found funny.
This little doggie really cracks me up!
It’s been on my mind to do a dog with a black eye circle.
Another black and white dog but in a different order.
I am still catching up with the dolls I took to Washington DC! I’m back to work though so soon enough I will have some of the latest things.
She is the last pug for now.
The garden has been so amazing this year and the flowers are inspiring me.
She has a black silk bow right above her tail.
And another adorable pug couple.
