Been a long time!

 I haven’t been making many dolls in 2022.  I have done sketches but have been creating books both cloth and paper.  I also have crocheted about 7 shawls-some for myself and some for gifts.  But back to dolls.  I did make one for the 2022 Senior Art Show.  She is a pirate with a pet fox Vixen who guards treasure.  I was inspired by a silk chiffon skirt and other clothes for recycle.  I also created a fox mask for her but only gave her an eyepatch to wear for the show.  She took second in her category. 

Vixen guarding Treasure

Here she is with her fox mask too.
I also planned on creating a. “Mate” for her.  Sketched him a few years ago but they would go together perfectly!

I have also been making Snippet rolls around wooden birdhouses.  A trinket roll is a strip of fabric pieced from small scraps then embroidered.  I have finished Spring, Summer and Autumn.  Just Winter to do.
Autumn and Spring rolled on birdhouses.  Leaves on roof are Gelli Plate printed recycled coffee filters.

Backside of the snippet roll.  Created a stamp from diecut fun foam.  PLeased with the result.
At the end of rack roll I have a hidden message/quote.  One of my favorites by Rachel Carlson.

Final picture is the front of the Autumn roll completed.  The buttons that hold the rolls closed are Pearl buttons with a floral decal.
