Warm days

So happy together!
This girl wanted this pufferfish so much. Now I have to figure out how to make a stuffed version.
Loved these plants! Anyone know what they are?
Sunset on the way to Cincinnati. 
Super cute penguins at the zoo.

Worn out after lots of walking.
I love Azaleas little giraffe headband.

Woodland creature

Hey there! Check out this little felted creature I made! I used some really lovely hand dyed wool my friend Kate Richbourg gave to me. I sculpted her face from polymer clay, then cast it and made resin copies to paint. The process is pretty fun. I haven't decided what to do  next with her, maybe add hooves, or beading. 

Working with fiber has taken my full attention lately. I just can't get enough! I've sewn several garments, woven a couple more teeny linen twine baskets and collected alpaca wool to make doll wigs. I think I'm going to do some embroidery now.
