This & that

I have not been working on much just mulling over a few ideas for my next project, but mostly finishing up a few small projects. I have signed up to take slew of classes this fall at various quilt shows in the region and I hope some of those give me bit of a new direction in my quilting. Later this month I will be at the Indian Summer Quilt Show and Conference in Fargo taking classes from Ellen Anne Eddy and then later in October I have a weekend of classes with Laura Wasilowski in Medora ND.

I had a tough time deciding how to continue beading this doll I started ages ago, but it seems to be working itself out. I am going to finish up the tail with the gold beads and then do a little swirl or something on the bottom. I have a ceramic face picked out and have a few ideas for the top half.
Here is another small project that I started and it stalled a bit. I created the flowers and leaves using wire and beads twisted into little loops. The fabric is a scrap from Sew Batik. Now how to finish her off?? I think I want to form some sort of body or arms to give it a doll feel, but just not sure how I want to create them.

I really love the fabric and the start you've made on that bottom piece. I am looking forward to seeing what it becomes.

The doll is going to be gorgeous - love what you've done already! And I REALLY love the fabric on the book cover with the face. My personal opinion is that the face alone is perfect, appearing as it does among the flowers that seem to be floating! But I'm sure anything you do will be wonderful! Hugs, Cathy
