I am working hard to have a good selection of my work for the Smithsonian Show. I will be at the opening gala in less than 3 weeks! Because I am so focused on getting ready for the show, I won’t be putting anything new into my Etsy shop until May 1.
Tiny World 1
I went to a tag sale at a church in my neighborhood and someone had apparently donated their collection of violet decorated teacups. You will be seeing several pincushions ahead with violets!
Tiny World 2
And here is a pic of my December Tiny Worlds-
I just had to get a few finished up for the show. The finish line is in sight! I set up tonight and tomorrow evening is the opening gala.
My etsy shop will be empty for the weekend (except for the instant download patterns) and then there will be an update on Monday, Dec. 18.
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.
