Summer Road Trip Creations

June 4, 2019

It's been awhile since I posted here on my blog. I changed the name to Fun Stuff because that's what I would like to share here. 

We just returned from a glorious road trip to the Northwest Coast. Although I had a little time to sketch, draw and write, most of our time was in the truck, bumping down the highway. I managed to create a few squiggly sketches, but spent more time on my felted creatures.


My book, I Am Goose comes out in 2020, (illustrated by Vanya Nastanlieva) so I thought I would make a little felt goose that looks like the character in the book. 

Here is how he turned out. 




I had been working on a fairy doll that looks like my mom, who keeps watch over us from afar. On the long drive, I had time to put all of her finishing touches onto her. Someday I will give it to our granddaughter who was named after her, but not until she is a little older.









 My sister Lisa made the little dress for her with fabric that Mom would have worn, and a crocheted hem. It makes me happy to look at her and think about my creative lovely mother. 








I use wool and a barbed needle which is called dry felting. Once I get the main shape, I use water and soap to tighten up the spaces. It is a wonderful hobby. I'm happy to be home now and back at my drawing board. 


Here is a link to my Pinterest page where I have some other creations.
