Another F.A.T. swap has begun. This is for tiny palm sized dolls. [Dotee Dolls] I started my 3 tonight -- they are pictured above in various stages -- none are finished yet -- sure are fun to do.These are such fun I have several more "bodies" ready to stitch and then embellish.
I made these 3 little bottle cap pincushions last night for another F.A.T. exchange. These exchanges are so much fun -- they are quick, inexpensive, easy to mail -- and a delightful break from the 'larger' projects.
These 3 tiny little pillows ( the largest 1 3/4 in square ) were made for the F.A.T. exchange. Inside each is a "prayer" for the receiver. The Dragonflies are charms and I used them because in some cultures the Dragonfly symbolizes new light and joy. Dragonflies are viewed as as a representation of positive forces, renewal and the power of life. The charms, along with the little personal prayer inside should cover a lot ;-)
The picture shows the treasures I brought home from our trip to Missouri.I usually take photos of my "finds" so I don't forget where I got them.I am so thrilled with all these -- most were from one dealer at the Gem and Jewelry show -- I got a lot at the shop on Friday and more from the same people at the show on Saturday. I just love it all.
October 4, 2007 Finished up my part of Jo's doll for the round robin. The theme is, Summer Magic, so I added the green of grass, the flowers of summer and blue for sky and water. Now it is on it's way to Indiana for the next beader to add her interpratation. I have started beading on Jo's doll for a Round Robin. The theme of the round robin is "Summer Magic". The blues I have beaded so far are representative sky and water -- a way to go, but I love these RR's The beaded 'hair' was done by another beader in the RR (Susan). Because the doll is laying face down, the 'hair' has separated. When she is upright it looks lovely.
