People who are familiar with my work know that I sew and paint roses, however, today I am going to introduce you to some of the angels I make all out of fabric and wool. I use hodgepodge for stiffener, and use myself as a model in the mirror when I am posing their arms and heads. I know you are getting quite a visual with that one. My husband has walked in on me when I was trying to get the arms just right and I was in an awkward contortion of a post - he stood there for a few seconds and then asked me if I was alright. You gotta laugh. I make some of them holding choir books, others lifting up tiny birds to the sky and my favorite of course is the praying hands. The angels you are seeing today I had done for a fund raiser. A lady in our church is raising money to build an orphanage in Haiti and they were having a fund raising social with silent auction. These were made for that event. I always spray them gold and they have no facial expression really, just closed eyes. I hope you like them.
WELCOME TO ~~FOR HEART AND HOME~~
Welcome to my blog ~For Heart and Home~. Thank you to my dear friend Linda from New York who took the pictures I sent her and made this beautiful banner for me. I visualized what I wanted it to look like and she made it happen. That is my sister and I as youngsters and yes, that is the home I grew up in during the 40's and 50's. Right about now, you are all probably saying, my goodness she is old. I am vintage, just like fine old lace. Thank you also to my good friend Debbi, from Oregon who answered questions non stop while I was trying to navigate the workings of the blog world. What is so wonderful is that friendships can reach across the miles and even tho we have never seen each other in person - through the wonders of the computer, we have developed that bond. Also, a big thank you to my good friend Mona also from New York, who often helps me after I have totally screwed something up on the computer. I feel very Blessed to have you all as my friends. Thank you and I hope everyone enjoys my blog. I know I will.
