Just a quick hello

Without going into any details there has been a lot going on that is keeping me busy offline. While I have been making new things I have not had a chance to photograph them to show here or to list them in my shop. I will be doing that soon but not making any promises on a date just yet.

Unfinished Object

This is a pixie I started sculpting a few months ago and never finished. I had planned on his having a soft sculpted wool body, His head and hands are made of air dry stone clay developed by doll artist Hannie Sarris. It is a lot different to work with compared to polymer clay and I did not think I would like working with it but I do. These need quite a bit more work. Then I need to sculpt the feet. I am thinking that I will needle felt the body once these things are finished and an armature is completed.

work in progress

I am attempting to make a little poodle doll for one of my nieces. Here is where it is so far. As you can see, there is still quite a way to go with it's coat.

Needle felt sock monkey

I have been practicing needle felting a lot lately. My end goal is to be able to make beautiful wool snail sculptures. A closer goal is to make a bunch of little sock monkeys to send to my sister's little kids. :) So far all I have accomplished is making what ended up as toys for my dog and cats. Every one made is better than the one before. Today's monkey is a better attempt but it will go to my toy loving black cat, Davin. Hopefully tomorrow's attempt will be even better and go to one of my nieces.

If you would like to play along, here is the sock monkey video tutorial by Sara Renzulli that I am following for this project.
