The Silver Dragon

Some years ago the doll club that I belong to had a challenge for us.  Make a doll from a children's  book .   So I picked "The Dragon Rider" by Cornella Funk.  On a whim I sent him off to Art Doll Quarterly and his picture is now in the "Show & Tell" section on page 117.  The magazine sent me a "badge" to put on my blog, lets see if I can figure that out :-)

 So here he is waiting for me to figure out how to make him come alive from the book cover, seems to be having a nice time as he waits. He is wire over cloth , there is a full wire frame inside his body including his wings.  The little boys head is paper clay the body wire and cloth. 

I haven't posted much lately  so I thought that it might be time to put on a few picturesSo here goes....

                                                       My strange Jumping Cat

    Is she bringing Sweet Dreams                                                     on her twisted broomstick??
I really like her twisted broom and her two frog friends on her hat

This girl has caught a soap bubble and has decided to go for a nice ride 

            They are 5" tall, cloth over wire

                   I think that she is little bit allergic to cats  :-)

New Love

Having the best time "Panting With Wool"  The colors are so vibrant.  The feel of the wool in my hands is so satisfying.  Not that I have given up on my soft sculptures, but sometimes it is a good idea to see whats down another road.

I have been away from my blog for such along time, so now that I am back they have changed the format and I am going to have to figure this all out again...blahh

This week-end I came up two colorful fun hats.  I'm sure that there are many more important  things that I should be doing but ... I'll get around to them  ;-)

I want to thank my granddaughter for putting up with me and my hats !

I have been knitting and crocheting for the past few weeks like a crazy woman. 

Nothing fancy but fun just the same.

Icelandic Landscape

Silk and Wool Needle Felted Wall Hanging

        The wild and rugged landscape of Iceland is apart of my DNA, well, that might be stretching it a little . Once you have wandered the shores, mountain or lava fields in solitude, you will carry this island with you forever. The silence is amazing, the landscape goes on forever and the power beneath your feet can be frightening if you give it to much thought.  It's a wondrous place.
