Finally, a New Doll

 Other than those Quick Nick ornaments, I haven't made a full size doll since the summer. I resolve to do bettr (yeah, right!). Here's a "Cecelia" dolls have had *mostly* done since the summer.

Merry Christmas!

 

I'm working today, so let's hope everyone behaves!

Quick Nick

Today I finished five new ornaments, taking photos as I sewed, stuffed, and glued. This will become a new pattern after we get through the holidays. I think he'll be available in digital format only.

I call him "Quick Nick" because he is a *relatively* quick dolls to make. I suppose he could be a pin doll, too!

Update, 12/27/21  I've just finished the pattern and instructions for this cute little doll:

Koi

 A friend and former co-worker of mine asked if I would make an art print featuring two koi - in specific colors - for her granddaughter. This was a fun project, and it's amazing how many types of koi there are. 

I scanned progress as I painted, so as not to ruin a step - the most challenging being efforts to make it look like the fish were under water and not on the surface. Here's the before and after.

Moose

Made for a friend, in exchange for a rustic teak table and chairs. Inspired by a Kaleidoscope (taster lesson) by Tam Laporte and many photos of moose (real and drawn).
