H E L L O!
...a nice Saturday here in the shop ~
taught Patti how to cross stitch!!
started her off on 18ct aida ~
but also showed her how to count threads
on linen so she can work her way into that :)
so far so good!
intense concentration going on here ~
|she is a left-hander too but has no problem at all picking this up...|
taught her how to hook a few months ago and she is now enjoying working on her first crow rug too!
I've been playing with paper clay ~
creating crazy things like this:
she will be a wizened old Witch...
the years have not been good to her ~
|troublesome times have put their marks on her haggard face|
she is beautiful in my eyes though!
she does have a rather large beak, does she not?
|oh that schnoz!|
all that fine detail will come to life more once she is painted and aged...
she will have a full head of hair and will be clothed
although she is just a
|wrinkles, warts & pox|
she will have piercing blown-glass eyes
and she even has pierced ears that will be adorned with ear bobs made from
antique Victorian Mourning jewelry parts in my collection....
|see you soon, my Pretties...|
H U M I D I T Y
goes away soon...
I hate it and it makes for rather-slow drying of my clay work...
be back soon with the finished photos of her :)
* Blessed be *
