Snowmen and dolls

Well, I finally got those nodder snowmen done. I was able to get all 9 finished up yesterday. I have 5 more springs. So I am cutting out 5 more bodies and getting them finished up this week.
These are fun to make, I purchased a bunch of springs on ebay and wanted to use them up and I am using a pattern from Sassafras Hill Primitives.


Next,, are 5 black dolls done, they are from a pattern from Chestnut junction. These are quick and easy to do, no face or hair.


This pattern I have had for quite a while it is called Olde Stockings by The Smiling Goat, I made these up and really liked the way they turned out. I have a few more to out drying and will hopefully get them dried and work on them tonight while watching Hell's Kitchen (one of my favorite shows).
I have about 9 more pumpkin and crows sewed up and turned, just have to turn them. I am really getting nervous about the show, everyone says it is very well attended. We ended up finding a place that rents rooms by the week only, it is cheaper for us to book that place, than it is to pay for 5 nights at another motel.






well, back to work, pumpkins and crows to paint and hopefully the weather will stay nice and hot for the next few days.

  6. I can't imagine getting that much inventory done, but then for War Eagle, I know you will need everything you can get made. I love shopping there and at all the surrounding shows. A friend and I hit 7 shows in and around War Eagle in three days! Participating in one of the shows near there is on my "bucket list".

  7. I love the nodder snowmen. When we moved into our rental there were (still are) 3 sets of those old springs. One still had a tag from Montgomery Wards on it. I need to find myself a pattern and do something with them.

    You do fantastic work. I imagine you must have one heck of an inventory.

    Take care and happy creating,
    Debbie

  8. I just love your snowmen. A friend of mine from work gave me about 20-30 old bed springs a few weeks ago and I am trying to make things out of them like yours but since I don't sew, I am trying to come up with other ideas of what to use.

    I should have those dolls. They are wonderful. You are a very talented crafter.

    Best of luck to you at your show.
    Blessings,
    AMY
