more crown babies for dolly adornments. so sweet. their tagging is just the miniature finish work that makes my heart sing. these are almost identical to the previous versions from a may postbut i chose to dangle the strawberries and pom pom precipitates instead.

loving their movement and delicate nature.

a commisioned project that will be a gift to the artisans of jess brown dolls.

lucky me :)

finding myself tangled in so many places this, illness, birthday's, father's day and of summer collection. lots of thoughts to blog about but no mental space to articulate it all.

so excited for my summer collection's opportunities to try new materials and forms...ring and bracelet sized pieces (with miniature tags:), oak gall ink for signatures, compostable paper ribbons for tagging and 100% recycled content paper with flower bits. so many layers of love...sweatering, hand sewing, handdyeing, knitting and pom poms aplenty. cast away yarn shop in santa rosa ca got a summer solstice delivery yesterday. the rest will be off to the ark before the end of the month.

next up 3 more tiny doll crowns and a fluffy skirt with pom pom trim. will try to post the results of these and other explorations this summer.
