Fairies For The Girls

Emma's is done but Mackenna's is in need of some skin and eyes! They aren't much bigger than 3 or 4 quarters set side by side, but they are cute and the girls want them to have clothing, so I'm going to purchase plaid satin Christmas ribbon to make little Christmas dresses for them- I'll post pics of that when they are finally dressed!

Learning More All The Time

I find that the process of learning for me is never ending, and as such requires me to definitely be comfortable with the attending process of change, as well. I used to resist change, until I started to grasp this concept, and now find that when I tap into who I was before I came to this Earth, I recognize that this has been a vital part of my spiritual character from the very beginning, and I am only just remembering my past personality.

Romanian Point Lace

I've decided to try Romanian Point Lace. It's combination between crochet & needle lace. In the future I also want to do a little bobbin lace, as watching the swift hands of the bobbin lace makers fascinates me, like watching a spider quickly spin her web!

The dragon fly you see above was drawn by a woman I used to work for. I'm making this piece for her. It will be placed on a yellow background (her spirit color) when it's completed. It will also have a thin irridescent thread accenting parts of the dragon fly to give it that glittery insect effect.

Other current projects include an Autumnal wedding gown of cream or ivory curtain lace with crocheted, Romanian, tatted & bobbin lace edgings & accents. I'm doing the "Cameo" neck medallion, for example, in a Romanian Point Lace motif.

The neck band & sleeve edges will be done in bobbin lace, the headpiece will be made of tatted butterflies & Plumeria blossoms & the edges of the veil & skirt of gown will have crocheted lace edging. I was nervous about combining machine made lace with hand made laces, but I've decided to just relax & let it be O.K.

Latest Work

His name is Ben, because he will be a Bengal Tiger. Quite a challenge, especially since it was impossible to get photos of a tiger skeleton from all the angles I needed. I hope he turns out gorgeous in the end.

Such A Cutie Pie

She's such a cutie pie! I love the way her eyes look. There are many more faces like her in my possesion- if one looked in my drawer, one would think I was a head hunter, or something weird.

I'm Grateful For My Mother

She taught me to crochet when I was 9 years old. She also taught me to love art and instilled in me a great faith in God. I love my mother & miss her terribly these 14 years!
