Welcome to my Blog

Hello and welcome to my blog. I've been trying to decide how to get started and I guess I'll just jump right in. My goal is to be able to keep you updated on new dolls that I am working on and also visit some of my other creative projects. Hopefully this will give me an opportunity to stay in touch and visit with you on a regular basis. I hope you will also visit my web site.

January passed so quickly and now it's almost the middle of February! I'll revisit January for a minute to tell you about a 3-person gallery show presented by the Brazosport Art League. The show titled, "Mostly People," was up Jan. 3-31 and featured oil and acrylic paintings by Frances Fraser, drawings and watercolors by Mike Marshall, and about 40 of my cloth character dolls. The show was very well attended and comments received were very positive! What a thrill it was to be invited to participate.

I am excited about the recently formed fiber arts group that includes members from the local Plantation Quilt Guild and the Brazosport Art League. We meet one afternoon a month to pursue our interests in the fiber arts. We bring materials and supplies from our stashes to work on a selected project for the month while we enjoy chatting and eating delicious goodies.....a great way to spend an afternoon! Oh yeah, the name of our group is the "Wild Bee." : )

I missed the first meeting in January, but really enjoyed the February meeting.....with a theme of hearts, of course! The March meeting will include a choice of 2 projects, one of which will be a button bracelet to be presented by me. My husband surprised me recently with POUNDS of vintage and new buttons he purchased on Ebay. I'm having so much fun sorting and playing with my buttons and creating bracelets, necklaces and other projects! : )

Happy Valentine's Day!
