Designing and stitching imaginary creatures for the holiday fair. Each softie will have a tag so the child who receives it will know it’s their creature to define and name. Imaginary play making is the goal. They also appeal to the big kid in me. And to some of you, who have commented to me. […]
Making as always, some new dolls for the Gallery gift shop. “My Animal”. Each one will be slightly different so a child can decide what kind of animal they want it to be. I like the idea of no preconceptions. Is it an owl? A bear? A cat? Or a animalope? Soft and cuddly for […]
Summer days are here and living in coastal Maine, sea and sand are the natural influence. I found this bandana like fabric that inspired me to carry the coastal theme through this home decor project.

Dream pocket pillow holds glasses a pen and even your phone […]
I’m in the mood for softies, they are stealing my heart away so I keep making them. Flowers and stars and more flowers and stars and a cloud or two. Sunny garlands, floral hues and blue and white stars. I’ve got more on the work table and they are keeping me quite busy. Off to […]
