window dreaming. I will give them eyes, now
freeform collage stitching-a cut as you stitch head. the lower part turned under, the ears ragged.
a lion kitten for Leonidas, recent addition to our family.
spaced out star..made to see how colourfast old old silk sewing thread I bought cheap is. washed ok except for the golden yellow
and against the window..giving me ideas for curtains

Your dolls are wonderful! I especially like mister Ziggy Stardust.
And wow, what a fantastic idea for curtains with the simple basting against the light !!!

Els said...

i am intrigued by your tiny loom. is part of something planned or just an experiment. i love all tiny things.

Oh how wonderful and inspiring! I love your raggedy dolls. FOllowed you over here from cwb. So glad you posted these.

Hi Diana, welcome!

Deanna you can see the loom on the top corner of the star-it is just threads stitched and then woven into- the bottom one is twisted like sumac- the "wefts" are not caught in the fabric-just a doodle, not dignified as an experiment

Els- so you know why he is called Ziggy! yes, the running stitch is like a line..I can see birds and fish and trees on curtains.I've never had curtains in any house that I lived in, but now..who knows?

Oh, Ziggy! Oh, Ziggy...what a darling you are. You will play well in front of curtains with stars.

Wonderful raggies and stitched stars - they've got soul!

Thought you might like this link, even if these are minimalistic stories (it's the same book as for the sea monster):
