More to come in the days and weeks ahead.
It’s unexpected sometimes where a creative journey will lead you. I think this as I look over at two unfinished dolls that are still waiting patiently to be painted and clothed. It seems that ornaments completely took over my time during the holidays… when I was originally thinking I’d be making a lot of dolls… and that I am just now thinking about getting back to my doll making again. I have taken a few baby steps getting back into it by beginning my Izannah Walker doll workshop… well, okay. I’ve cut out the pattern pieces and traced them onto my fabric. 🙂 I hope to get a bit more done this weekend, and perhaps paint and clothe one of those patient dollies sitting on my work table.
But for now, I have bunches of new ornaments to share. Chenille dog ornaments for small dog lovers with a pug, a terrier, and a little mutt in the set; two sets of chenille St. Patrick’s Day ornaments, and another new spun cotton ornament. I have yet another mostly-finished spun cotton Easter rabbit ornament that I will also be offering for sale soon. All of the ornaments below are available now in the Old World Primitives Etsy Shop.
I added two new sets of chenille ornaments to the Old World Primitives Etsy Shop today, especially for cat and dog lovers (like myself!).
They can be used as feather tree ornaments for Christmas or everyday, and would also make nice handmade wedding favors.
While starting to create for Christmas, I am still enjoying counting down to Halloween! Last weekend I went to a spooktacular Halloween costume party that featured some truly out of this world decorations and interactive displays. Below are some of the photos that I took during the evening, including pictures of the *least* scary decorations. In one room, the walls reached out and grabbed me… twice!
