Dallas Library Display

If you live in Dallas or are lucky enough to be visiting during the month of December, swing by the Dallas Public Library Lochwood branch and check out my display of crocheted critters and digital collages in their front case. This is my second Dallas Public Library display. You might remember that last year my work was in the White Rock Hills front window for the month of November. Mike and I are power users of the library system so it makes me quite happy to have them like and display my work. Enjoy.

My Crocheted Dogs Are In Another Book

diy dog portrait book coverYou might remember back in the spring of 2014 I was excited that several of my photos of my crocheted dogs were in a newly published book. Well, three of those same photos are making an appearance in a soon to be published kids art book called DIY Dog Portraits. My crocheted dogs are featured as inspirational works that a kid learning to crochet would want to make someday. Pretty cool, if I say so myself.

Work Work Work

I have been very busy. In case you were wondering why there have been no updates to my blog. I found a lot of cool batik and other fabrics and have been drawing away on the fabric. Then I spend several days sewing, sewing and more sewing. Now the fun part begins, cutting the critters out, stuffing them and taking their photos so you can see what I have been seeing for weeks. New critter shaped pillows. New dog breeds drawn. New cat positions drawn. Pictured is the pile of stitched and drawn critter pillows to be, awaiting my scissoring. Off to work I go.drawn sewn critter pillows to be
