Art Dolls Invading

1 Flares 1 Flares ×

Art doll making – rather invading.  The Lavender Bellies.  Working on my table for the York Art Association Holiday show and sale.


Hand painted canvas, vintage buttons, felted wools and lavender sachets inside.


You, dear friends, know I like my art dolls on the funky side.


Rag poetry as a design element and of course hand stitch.


A bit of grace for good measure. Stitching a life.


Lavender from Apifera Farm, best quality I know.  Cool artist and misfit lover too second link is her etsy shop where I get my lavender and other wonderful things.
