I've just completed another tassel doll. She is made from a vintage tassel I found in an antique store in Wisconsin. The tassel has a green glass globe which makes a perfect bosom for Emma. I've named her Emma--short for emerald. She is such a jewel. She is dressed to the nines with her emerald studded high heels and painted fingernails. Her hat gives her a jaunty attitude which I love. I get to enjoy her for a few weeks but she'll be up for sale on Nov. 20th. Hope you enjoy her too.

It's been another week of getting more items ready for the Nov.20th show and sale. I saw a chicken pin cushion once in a store and was inspired to create my own. I did and also made a pattern for those that want to make their own. After I made a couple of them, I found a flower that I thought would make great tail feathers.....so cute...now I'm on the lookout for more unique ways to make the tail feathers.

Since I got back from vacation in Arizona and the Grand Canyon, I've been busy making Coupon/Calendar Holders. I got tired of carrying around my coupons in ratty envelopes and digging in my purse for my pen and calendar. So.... I designed a holder to keep my coupons, calendar and pen all in one place. When I showed it to other people, they all wanted one. So I decided to make some for the November Show and Sale. I also created a pattern which I can sell. My local ASG club wants me to give a workshop so they can make them too. I've made 9 of them so far ....I probably should make some in Colts pattern but....I'm really tired of making them...time to start on something new. The Indy Cloth Dollmaker's Show and Sale is only 4 weeks away and I really need to start making some more scarves, purses, sculptures and dolls. Busy, busy, busy.....anyway, here are some pictures of the coupon holder.
