What a crazy year! We are all trying to stay safe while still enjoying day to day life.
Markets have been closed but we have been fortunate to set up a retail holiday shop for one week only to allow artisans to display and sell their creations to the public.
Here is my set up for the week: these are the photos in my garage when I was trying it out. The actual set up is on my Facebook page. I concentrated on smaller cost items that would be suitable for the young and young at heart.

Although my first love in making dolls remains fabric, I do enjoy working in polymer clay using techniques I learned from the amazing Kate Church.
This strange year I was searching you tube and came across some short videos made by Kate Church on sculpting a wee fox. Well I had to try and one fox became two, became three and so on and so on... Here are the leash of foxes I made three of which have gone to good homes and one which is on its way to our Provincial Health Officer, Dr. Bonnie Henry (in appreciation for the calm and compassionate way that she has guided this province during this Covid epidemic).
I have moved on to making cloth bunnies from vintage linens based on the work of the incredible Mr. Finch. I will be posting them next week. Until then, keep safe.
