Starry, Starry Tights

Starry, Starry Tights, mixed media assemblage art doll


And...a close up look at those starry, starry tights :) The attire of this fine lady was inspired by these acrobatic wonders.

“The other dolls sat upon the shelf and looked straight before
them, for it would never do to let grown-up men know that
dolls were really alive.”

Book Quilt


Finally got around to photographing the book quilt I shared with you last week. This patchwork of frayed book skins represents many different volumes....a French dictionary, children's primers, a physiology textbook, various science books, a guide to insects and a bible story book.

A big thanks to those of you who shopped at my Spring Sale! If you're reading this and missed it I'll plan to keep the coupon code active 'til tonight ;) Coming up this week are two 'wall doll' assemblages and a group of April art blocks.

Spring Sale


I took a snapshot of this lone daffodil in our front yard a couple days ago. The next morning one of the neighbor's cats decided to sit on it but at least I got the picture, right?! Anyhow, I'm thinking since it's such a lovely time of year I should have a little shop sale to celebrate:

Quilt In Progress


Working with bits of book skin's to create another quilt like the ones I patched together last year. If you follow me on Instagram these are old news ;) It's such fun to have immediate feedback there...like the sage advice to use a thimble while stitching! Check back later this week for the finished quilt.

Breakfast Collage

Breakfast, collage on old book cover



I've created a short time-lapse video so you can see this collage take shape one piece at a time. Picked up one of these so I could mount my phone directly over my workspace. Hoping to make more process videos to share with you in the future. Have a beautiful weekend!
