One Little, Two Little, Three Little Pumpkins...............

Seems Mr. Potter found a few friends out in the pansy fields.
 Meet sweet Miss Mavis and dear ole Pierre.
 Lots of detail, love and warm fall colors went into these fine pumpkin folk -Oh how they tug at my heart strings. They will be heading to Norcross Art Fest next weekend. I am still working away and plan to list some Fall / Halloween creations in my Etsy shop in October. Any special requests??
Have a fabulous

Finished, Welcome Mr. Potter........................


Mr. Potter is finished and back from the garden with his fresh pickins of pansies.
 He is such a warm and whimsical fellow.

I am busy, busy still creating more folk art and dolls for the upcoming Historic Norcross Art Fest in GA. The show is October 5-6th and I am very nervous - it will be my first show in GA and I haven't done a street fair in years. I really missed doing the show and seeing friends at the Country Living Fair in OH this year. But with all I have been thru this year - it was just too much to handle. I am considering the Country Living Show in Atlanta GA next year. It is much closer to home than OH now that we are in the gorgeous mountains of North Carolina. It is truly breathe taking here.
Autumn Blessing to all

My Machine is Back Up and Running..........

Yes! My machine is up and running and I am back at it. 
Meet Mr. Higginbottom, he demanded some breeches before I get back to working on Mr. Potter and friends. This poor old chap had been sitting around for some time with no pants or jacket - he said he felt rather " undignified" 
 Huh! What a character

Changing Things Up a Bit

Well, I had been working on all those fun pumpkin people when "kaboom!"
my sewing machine (Nellie) got jammed up and stopped working. I was in a panic but good ole Dr. Tim the sewing machine man has her in his shop and she'll be up and running again soon. I have had the same machine since the early 1980s. Nellie is a German PFAFF - they just don't make them like that anymore - she is worth the $135 bucks to get her stitching again. Ouch!
I have started a batch of my mixed media doll ornies while I wait for Nellie. Love the shot of all the silly heads above. Lots of found objects, beads and wire - they are so much fun to make.
Happy Friday
 enjoy the weekend!

Mr Potter is on Today's Work Table.......

Mr. G Potter is eager for me to finish him.
He wants to get out into the garden and pick more flowers for his Fall bouquet.
He is such a sweet little fellow.
