Last year I posted about the work I had done in 2012 and was a bit surprised at how much my output was. Sheesh I was one busy lady.
This year I was positive that I hadn't done very much but when you put it all together I have been busy this year too.
Here goes....not in any chronological order.....
A mouse.....with a cute hat. I love making little hats and mice :)
I completely forgot about this one. I participated in an altered CD challenge over at Cloth Doll Artistry. I made a Steampunk themed picture book.

A mermaid from a pattern by Barbara Schoenoff. I used batik that I covered with green lace that had metallic gold highlights.. Her top is made from leaves and flowers that I fussy cut from the same lace. I thought it looked like seaweed. I also made the bead belt around her waist.
This was another CDA challenge. We had to take a New Year's cover from the Saturday Evening Post and interpret the image in clay type medium. This was my first ever and probably my last effort in FIMO...LOL
I also took some online classes to improve my doll making skills.
Abundance with Angela Jarecki....
|I loved making that crow:)|
Lillian and Max with Cindee Moyer....
|Max was made of paper clay then covered with strips of paper from an old book.|
Enkai Nou with Angela Jarecki.....
|Cloth over a soft sculpted face.. I found it very difficult but I think I would do it again.|
|More fussy cut lace:)|
I also did some more challenges at Cloth Doll Artistry.....
A Garden Friend...a lady bug.
A Steampunk Halloween mask. I've decided it may be an owl. I'm not sure what I was thinking about at the time:)
A Zombie Bride......sadly looking for her lost love. I think she looks pretty hopeful.
And, then I tried a little bit of crazy quilting. An idea from Allie Allers Crazy Quilting book.
And a stitch diary to put all my small bits and pieces of stitching.
I think that about does it.
I have no idea what 2014 will bring but I hope you visit with me and see what I get up to.
I'm linking up with The Needle & Thread Network.
Thank you for your comments about our power outage. The turkey was finally cooked and eaten on Boxing Day so all was well. It was delish:)
