Just Playing

Thanks for all the wonderful comments on our doll display. The club really enjoys it and I think it is just a push some of us need to finish a doll or two in time for the show. The meetings before are spent working on Unfinished Dolls and trying to solve problems so they can be finished. Thanks too for the kind words on my purse. I have since added an outside pocket for my cell phone and some beautiful trims I got at the show from Quilter's Fancy. Oh my! What wonderful things she has! You can visit her site here

Last night I took some time to play with my die cutter and grunge board. I had been thinking of trying this for a few weeks now and was spurred on by one of Quilting Arts latest enewsletters. I need a clasp for a purse commission and I think this will work. The background purse color is Eggplant. I used Tsukineko Walnut inks, Twinkline H20s, pearl-ex powders and Dimensional Paint on the flowers. I think they will work just fine with some frayed gold and green Lame behind them. They would look good on my new purse too! Now to do the purse! I did finish the doll and the article--just have to mail it, I am almost done with my Hoffman Challenge doll. She is currently "mulling". I like to have her just there so I can decided if everything works and what needs to be fixed--two things so far but both are minor so they can wait. I am also working on two new doll classes. I think you'll like these!
