Christmas Quilt




This throw size quilt is made with 5"x5" squares. First is sew the square together working vertically. Then I lay out a flat cotton sheet. Lay a flannel sheet over the flat sheet and the pieced layer on top of that. I trim the the flat and flannel sheets so they are about 3" larger than the pieced top layer. Then I fold the flat and flannel layer over creating the border. I hand stitch the border then tie the center of each square with a knot. For this quit, I used Lion Brand Suede.

Intention Dolls


I just gave this doll away to a very dear friend. It is a doll in a series I call intention dolls. The face is made of polymer clay that has been stippled with gold leaf paint and hand beaded. The hair is made of novelty yarns and feathers. The I sculpted the hands from oven baked clay and painted them.
