Spirit of the West Festival

Here I am in costume at the 2008 Spirit of the West Festival in Sioux Falls, SD. A fun filled 3 day event. I volunteer to do Bobbin Lace and spinning and get free entrance and meals at the event. Plus I get to play dress up and do demos. I have on a hoop skirt vest and victorian style shirt with a french influence hat. I love that hat it is sooo cool to wear. I am working at my Bobbin Lace pillow putting a bobbin lace finish to some woven bookmarks for an exchange.

New family member!?

Haven't named her yet but made her since the Dec. 6th Fiber Guild winter fiber day. I learned how to do the head then in a workshop that Helen Hopkins taught. Thanks Helen. Then I went home and after a week decided that she needed a body to go with the head so away I went on that. Only going to show the backside of the nakid pix. The front is as well detailed and so is not appropiately modest for my blog. She is all that I am not!! Tall, long legged and long waisted with a nice tidy figure and reasonably well endowed. All needle felted no armature. She does not quite stand on her own she is braced against the machine. The sitting pose is before she got her skin put on. A friend has volunteered to make her some clothes as I have none for her. She is wrapped in a cover cloth I use for my bobbin lace pillow. This was fun to do but another thing to get obsessed about??!!!
