A Very Merry Christmas to All

Oh My

It certainly has been a while. I have been so very busy,plus there was a bit of stress along the way...I always slow up when stressed (A) because I think it shows in my writing (B) I spend more time in meditation then I do on the computer. Nothing stops me from playing though so let me show you whats new.
This is a Raven I have been working on (Frowning Francis pattern) ..Several years ago I made a bird for a friend. I named her Sandy, put shells in her hair ...My friend likes the beach...Since then they bought a Beach House and that's where sandy lives. I thought she could use a friend and what I've seen so far of the beach house, I felt some Steam Punk might fit right in so Edgar was born. He is made from muslin that gessoed and painted...Gears from old watches came in handy. I didn't have a propeller so I made one from an aluminum plate...his goggles are from a watch bracelet the nose piece made from the same paper plate then all were painted with rusting paint. When I make another, and I will, I will use heavier wire for his legs...but other then that he was a blast to create. I'll be back later...my brother just stopped in for a visit.

The crown charm has a sepcial meaningnote the K on the key and the shell is from Long Island NY...my friend lives on the West coast..and a butterfly because it represents me.


  1. Hi Kathie,
    Oh that pattern is from my dear friend Frowning Frances (Susan) I love her patterns. That one is on my list to buy next. :)
    Love how the bird turned out! Lucky friend who will get him. :)

  2. What a coincidence. I just got this pattern for a Steampunk challenge that I'm in at Cloth Doll Artistry. I can't wait to make it up now that I've seen your bird. He looks pretty darn cool:)
