This one is mine.
Here is one of Sharon's.
This one is Shirlee's. She prefers to hook in a quilting hoop.
...another one of Sharon's.
This one is Vickie's. Sharon designed this pattern. I'd like a pattern like this but the piece is so large, I'm afraid I'd never finish it.
And this one is Ann's. She finished it tonite.
Don't forget to click on photos to get them large to see all the wonderful details.

Remember the cover of my book,,, Mr Pea Hat? Well, he is looking for strange people like him who wear strange hats. I finished up this page tonite in my fabric book.
People always ask me where I get my ideas from. Well,,, 99.9% of the time they just come though my head. This time was different however, I found this photo in a magazine, and just couldn't resist using my creative license. (obviously someone else used their creative license too) How could I pass this up! Perfect inspiration for my Pea Hat book!

This is a story I am creating about Mr Pea Hat who goes on the search for other people like him who wear strange hats. I made this out of heavy duc fabric and machine stitched the pages together. I paint the pages with gesso first then paint my pages with artist grade acrylics. So far Mr Pea Hat meets a strange woman with a bird hat. I hope to add some more pages this week.

Bella is my interpretation of a topsy turvey doll. She is made from duc fabric, gessoed with acrylics. She is approx 10 inches tall. Her sister on the other end has blond hair, while Bella has black hair. The duc fabric was a little difficult to turn, so next time I would probably use muslin. She wears a cute little skirt that can be turned depending what side you want her to be on. For now Bella keeps me company in my studio but soon she will be on her way to her new home.

This fish girl is a world traveler. She went to Australia for a gallery exhibit, then came home to me several months later. She measures approx 14 x 7, and is crafted with muslin, polyfil, and acrylics. I hope to get her in my shop this weekend. I am in the process of making another stuffed art doll. She is a topsy turvey doll. She is near completion and I will post her as soon as I can.
I hope you are all having a lovely spring week.
