State Fair deadline close…oh no….

July 19, 2010

I decided to go ahead and enter the Texas State Fair again this year with dolls, soft sculpture and a wall hanging I have not made yet.  This is my fourth year for dolls.  Hmm, I think maybe I need to get to work.  I was

panicking as I did not have a flat face doll I could think of to enter, but then was in my sewing room and remembered I had this little lady who just needs some finishing and she is good to go.  I have several sculptured face dolls I can get ready, but knew I didn’t have time to make two dolls and a wall hanging by August 13.  So, guess I have my work cut out for me.  I also have this pile of stuff I need to get done also for upcoming shows and the closest I have gotten is dying the fabric and making the patterns.  Well, let the fun begin.  LOL … till next time…

My ode to Pink…she is getting there…

July 8, 2010

I decided a few weeks ago to make some dolls that were inspired by my favorite singers.  Pink has to be at the top of the list, as I love her personality, voice, music… I kind of wish I had been more like her when I was younger.  Oh well, I ended up the artistic introvert.  So, she is finally coming to life.  I was using the cover art from the Funhouse album as my guiding point.  I am working on a carousel horse that she will be sitting on.  I will post more pics as I get farther along.  I need to do some research though on her tattoos, as I want to add some to her back and arm, but from the album cover cannot really tell what they look like.  My next doll will be an ode to Lady Gaga, as I think she is pretty cool, plus I can dress her however outrageous I want, put a blonde wig on her and everything is wonderful.  LOL.  Till next time….

Here I am…sassythreadworks.com

July 6, 2010

I have decided to move Sassythreadworks.com blog to WordPress, as it is easier to manage than where my blog is now.  For the latest news on what shows I will be in this year, what new projects I am working on, etc., here is where you will need to come.  I had thought about doing double posts, one at the old location and one here, but that was just too much trouble.  Hope you will be a regular visitor seeing what I am working on.  If you want to see the old blog it is at http://www.sassythreadworks.blogspot.com/.

Till next time…
