I made a resolution early this year, and that was to NOT work on doll-related stuff in the evenings when the hubs and I watch TV. It was beginning to feel like work, and I love the doll biz too much to let it become drudgery. But I do like having some kind of handwork to do (call me a multi-tasker--I can watch Bones reruns and sew! Woohoo!).
I also have a Folk Art Fair coming up in June, so I figured I could do little tops for the tons of papermache boxes I have in the studio. (Does anybody else suffer from an addiction to small containers? It's a sadness I'm trying to turn into a happiness.) One is a punch needle, using 3 strands of embroidery cotton, the others are wool applique and embroidery. The Thistle is not yet complete, but in all, I'm enjoying the work AND being productive.
Hope y'all have a lovely weekend.
