I'm Here!



Oh boy..........It's been over a month since I last posted here! lots of stuff happening in my life has prevented me from always doing what I want to do, but I'm back in harness now, more or less. My dear old cat (I posted about her a while back) passed away a few weeks ago. She was twenty one years old and such a sweet-natured little presence that I miss her badly. Always considerate, she saved us the looming anguish of making a decision about when to take her for the kind needle.
Here is some stuff I've been working on.....firstly the Travelling Doll Project that I have been participating in. This is Colleen's doll, which arrived with no face. I gave her a face and the small baby she is holding and sent her on her way. She looks a bit odd with no hair, but I'm assuming the next person will give her some! Secondly, here is a sculpted bust I have just finished. I called her "Guinevere". And lastly, I've been making Zozie dolls and small wrapped elf babies to sell at "The Best of the Tamar" market to be held in the Sidmouth Hall on Good Friday. This is when the Three Peaks race starts, so there should be zillions of people around. I should also have some small paintings and some sculptural pieces on display.

Hi Fran - Clarence Point - that's the one I'm going to it's the "Best of the Tamar" market in the Clarence Point hall and environs. So as far as I know - just one market on that day.

I'm so glad you are back! Those elf babies will be gone quickly at the show. The bust is wonderful. I love your blog and look forward to many new posts of your wonderful work!

Hi Susie, sorry to hear about Puss. She must have gone just after we were all last there. 21 years doesn't seem that long does it? Linda

Susie I'm so sorry to hear about your kitty. It's so hard when they go, like loosing a little piece of ourselves.
Your new dolls look wonderful as always, I love the little podling elf babies.

Susie - I'm sorry about your kitty. That's a lot longer than many relationships in life last.

I love your Zosie dolls. They have such a fun spirit.

I wondered where you were Susie! My sympathies about your kitten. It is so hard without them. Give her time and you will feel her presence. As always your doll and sculpture wow me. Thanks for sharing! hugs,Sue
