I’m finding people are interested in these cutie pies so I want to get a few more into the Etsy shop. I have multiple ideas for icing and sprinkles floating in my heart and I am trying very hard not to confuse the art with the food.
“Do Not Eat Donuts,” I repeat to myself.
I but donuts for research. They are so pretty. These day-old donuts were cheap inspiration at WalMart.
I like these big pastel dots.
They had little dots too.
Then I have to decide how I will reproduce the pastels in fabric or beads, or whatever is available and not too expensive.
I began stitching the small maple bar, one of four donuts I cut today.
I cannot find this color anywhere, not online or at the JoAnn store. Boo hoo.
I guess Ill have to concentrate on round donuts but it was very good for a round donut base, too.
This is before I started stitching the maple icing on tightly.
Maybe I’ll keep this one and keep my eye peeled for some maple-colored substitute.
My shelves are stuffed with the materials of projects underway.
I’m going to be fast at work for the rest of the spring and summer and hopefully, Frank and I can take a little break mid August for a reunion of our dearly beloved friend from our early San Francisco days! Whee!
I’ve cut a new pattern for slightly larger cloth dolls. I’m looking forward to building up stock for the 2010 holiday season. I’m going to keep it real simple and make it sweet.
I am so thankful for this being my life.
It’s 4 p.m. and I’ve been at it since 5:30 a.m.
Time to relax, wind down and rest up for tomorrow.
The wind is blowing in another storm. The sky is still blue but I bet we’ll have rain soon. I love the sound of rain onthe roof, the windows.
I might have to put the bottle dolls off for another year.
