2020 Begins Happy New Year

Happy Lunar New Year! Well the new decade has begun (or not as my sister maintains). My creative journey continues with Arley Berryhill ‘s pattern “Penny Dreadful “. I will be displaying her at the Coast Collective Gallery show called “Red”. She was a joy to make. I used the colour red as my inspiration:
Whenever I start a new project, I decide on the colour story and then put together fabrics and trims in a basket.  I generally never use all the fabrics I initially choose but it is important to have choices on hand when I am creating.  In making this doll, I had all the fabrics already in my home stash, including the trims and trinkets ( I love adding those special details to my dolls).  I am very pleased with the results and I named this gal Lady Victoria Scarlett Rossa, a fierce lady who always wears at least a touch of red:

Thank you Arley Berryhill for creating such a wonderful pattern for us to use.

My second entry for the "Red" show at the Coast Collective is called "Cardinal Ideas", based on a pattern by Frowning Francis (another one of my favourite designers):

The show will be on from January 29th through March 8th at the Coast Collective in Victoria.
