Her name is Elspa Fiery~

Well, here she is! I'm so happy with how she turned out! What fun I had creating her! The whole "creating process" is so consuming isn't it? I got so caught up in making her that I couldn't wait for her to be finished! I just love her hair! It's sheep wool that I purchased on ebay, I needlefelted it into her head...I also enjoyed the "dressing part" too! I found the wonderful wool that I used to make her jacket while we were in the Amish country last month. I attached an old button to the front and added a stained scarf around her neck. I made her a little "halloween" bag to wear to the witches tea. I used a Stacy Nash pattern for that...so cute isn't it? All the other "witches" will want one too! (: She is my very own pattern...I will be listing her on ebay this weekend. I also have a little "Autumn" pillow that I stitched and sewed together, (a little folk art bird w/a pumpkin and falling button leaves) I backed it with a beautiful gold color wool and stuffed it nice and full. I also stitched a little pillow to hang on a door knob for the fall...another Stacy Nash pattern called "Hallows Eve".


I love the great reproduction fabric that I found to use for the backing! Well, that's it for now, I've got lots more I want to do for the fall...hopefully I will fit it all in! ~I'm off to a special friend's tomorrow, we are going to hang the curtains that I made for her family room (I will take pictures..she has a lovely home..I'll ask her for permission to share them on my blog) and then we are going to do some "prim" shopping while the roast cooks for dinner and the guys watch "whatever" on the sports channel! (: I can't wait! ~I hope you do something fun this weekend too! Thank you for stopping by! Until next time, a kindred spirit~Kathy

~Something new~


~Well as you can see, I am trying something new...not sure I will keep this look...I needed a change, but just not sure yet about this one...still tweaking...~ I have been busy sewing and stitching and will have some new things to add to my blog soon. I haven't had as much time to visit all of your blogs and feel the need to 'catch up' with everyone! Can you believe this month is almost gone! The kids are back to school here in our area...where did the summer go?! Even though we no longer have school age children, I still feel a bit sad when I see the school buses passing by. ~ It is very cool here this weekend, and I can feel Autumn in the air....
I am excited and ready for all that the fall season holds! I've already made a new wreath for the front door (pictured above), I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. I can't wait to show you pictures of my new witch doll...she has turned out so cute...I just love her! Well, that's it for now...will be back soon! Thank you for stopping in! Until next time, a kindred spirit~Kathy
