Summer 2008

Nita Butler made this doll for me, she was my swap partner on Glitter Town Dollys. It turned out we both love yo yos, so I made the doll into a necklace. Used the small Clover quick yo yo maker. The tee shirt I got at a bazaar for fifty cents, I added the pink yo yo to it.

It's so hot and sticky I think I'll just make yo-yos. June 28, 2008

I made the little bag from yo-yos, the third week of August

If you can't bring yourself to throw away a scrap of material you will understand this doll. Beaded Liberace completed during the heat wave of early June 2008 in NYC

Inspired by this pin cushion tutorial

All dressed up for the Amalgamated Co-op Craft Show

Shadow stamp technique

I notice you like Elinor Peace Bailey.
I once met her years ago at Quilt Market in Houston. She's very nice and quite a character. Before I met her I saw her in the airport. She really had heads turning. She's over 6 ft. tall and was dressed in a long flowing vest with doll parts hanging all over it. But you probably know what she looks like. She sure is a wonderful doll maker!

Hello Larasara! Lovely blue fairy! The yoyo pockets I made are two squares sewn right sides together, turn & sew shut. Then just fold three corners in and sew together. They're meant to be reverseable, but I like to put the yoyo on and add a snap closure. Have fun!
