Back before tour frenzy hit the studio,
I gave you a little hint of what I was working on.
I finished them on the Saturday of the tour and hung them on the doors separating our
living space from the studio.
I am sorry it has taken me so long to show you the results.
They didn’t get much reaction on the tour to my disappointment but I love how they turned out! One person told me they were “too spooky”.
Hmm…I didn’t think they were that spooky.
I found the spider fabric in her skirt, in an Asheville fabric store and loved it on sight.
From that point on I just made them up as I went along which is how I like to work.
They were labor intensive with lots of steps along the way, but I am very happy with them.
You would not have to hang them on a door; it could be a cupboard or a wall.
I don’t have individual names for them, all I could think of was “Door Greeters”.
Yeah, I know not very creative.
The lady pumpkin greeter is made with my own hand-dyed wool fabric, embroider face, “moth wings” with stitched covered wire for shaping, vintage buttons and belt ring on back for a hanger, black netting slip, and her own little stitched black kitty.
The gentleman pumpkin greeter is also made with my hand-dyed wool fabric, embroidered face, “bat wings” with stitched covered wire for shaping, vintage buttons and belt ring,
and his own little stitched pumpkin.
Now I am brimming with ideas on others to make! How about a strawberry or tomato head or Uncle Sam/Lady Liberty or Santa/Snowman?
The list could go on forever.
What do you think? Should I make more of them?
Is this something anybody else would go crazy over like I have?
Feedback is important to me.
I get wrapped up into my own world and need to hear what other people think.
Thanks to everyone who made a comment about our losing Monica.
It helped so much. I appreciate each and every one of you.
It is going to take time to adjust to not having a dog in the house for the first time.
We will love again one day when the time is right, and we meet that special little soul that needs a loving fur-ever home.
