I just received the Spring issue of Art Doll Quarterly and my doll has been published! They had a contest asking for fairy tale dolls so I decided to make Baba Yaga. I hand dyed the fabric for her body and face. The pin she is wearing came from Estonia. My grand mother was a world traveler. I hand painted her eyes. She was a labor of love. I remember reading Baba Yaga stories to my children when they were young. I want to thank the publishers at Art Doll Quarterly who selected my doll for their magazine.
When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you.... Rumi Hello everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year's. A busy time of the year. I enjoyed my family being together for the holidays, the baking, the eating and the celebrating! Above is a picture of an owl I made for my daughter's Christmas present. It is made out of hand dyed linen and items from my piles of found objects. The wood came from a tree that was cut down in my neighborhood. It is so much fun to make things from the heart. Luckily I am at the point in my life where I can work for pleasure. I spent thirty years of my life making things for others and teaching. I truly enjoyed those years, but to work for the sheer enjoyment is a wonderful gift. My word for this year is quiet. So encompassing. Do you make goals or resolutions? I would love to hear about them! Have a wonderful day. Sue
