I made this little sweetie last night. She's resting in the wreath above my desk. She's sort of like a shelf-sitter with her wings. The wings are made from jewelry wire covered in tracing paper and mod podge. I painted and glittered them and stitched them to her...actually I stitched her to them as I made the wings first. I painted her face. She has beads and baubles and an embroidered heart. I was reaching for more thread and accidentally pulled out a little felt star that I'd cut out for something long ago, so I decided to stitch that on to her as well. I do live in the Star City of the South, y'know.
I get so much pleasure and satisfaction from making these little dolls. I fell in love with this one right away.
I hope everyone is having a great weekend. Mine is great; laid back. I got a lot of tidying done yesterday. Fall always motivates me a bit with its cool air and bright sunshine. I feel like cooking again, too. Last night I made pork chops with plum and pear sauce. It was so yummy. I got it from Rebecca I followed a link to her site yesterday morning and just had to try the recipe. We really liked it.
I'm going to go look at your blogs now. Catch ya later. :)
