My friend Pea gave me a pocket she pulled off her sweater and said, "Can you do anything with this?" Can I do anything with it! I thought. Doesn't she know me by now?
I made Pea this little cat out of the pocket. I always learn something when I make a doll. This time I learned: Don't pour BBs directly into a loosely woven cloth doll. Why didn't I put them inside a little bag and tuck them inside? I will use that method next time, but it's too late for this little kitty, who occasionally poots out a BB. Pea brought me these two shapely little bowls from her brother-in-law's studio. Aren't they beautiful? The contrast between the roughened texture on the outside of the bowls and the smooth interiors is delicious. See more of Steve's work at LookWhatSteveMade.Copyright LookWhatSteveMade
I must have one of these.
You can visit Pea's Etsy shop (PatiR) for some fabulous earrings, bracelets, and necklaces. I like the style of her earrings, especially the ones with bees. Here's the necklace she calls "Sea and Sand."
It makes me want a floppy hat with a long sea-green ribbon, very tanned feet, and a three-tiered skirt of white cotton gauze...................................................
Thanks to those who have signed on as readers. (I don't like the term "followers". It makes me nervous to think people are following me.) I'm grateful to know I'm not talking to myself.
