This quote says it all for me:
"I do not understand how anyone can live without one small place of enchantment to turn to."
My small place is my studio area in the corner of my living room. My Whimcees are all the dolls, bears and other creatures that I sew from cloth or sculpt from clay, the cards and papercraft projects that I create.
It is with this blog I hope to share my world created in my small space.

New Doll - Pop Up Witch
The days just seem to disappear lately - a week goes by in a flash! I have been working on a new doll - a Kathryn Walmsley on-line class to make a pop-up toy witch doll. Here are some photos of the head. The first are with the ears on and the nose pinned, ready to stitch. You can't see that there are THREE darts in the nose - at the end and each nostril. Very small pieces to sew!
Here the nose has been sewn to the head and stuffed and needle sculpted to give it shape.
I have also been working on a haunted house and will have some photos of that tomorrow and then more photos of the witch as I have now finished her hands and hat and will start to work on her clothes. But first I have a lot of fussy cutting to do for the haunted house. Wishing you a happy day today! We have sunshine here in this part of WI - but it is COLD! I am not ready for winter.
