I’m embroidering my men one by one after sketching out a cartoon of each based on their portraits. Not sure if they’ll become a quilt or pillows… Thoughts?
My family is Southern, and so I’ve always had a soft spot in my heart for this sort of thing… Here is the voodoo doll I created for Criss Angel‘s new show on Spike TV.
The “secret” is that I got some of his hair from his recent trim and added it to the doll!
Lucas and Paul have been a huge support as I make my move to Las Vegas…
Lucas (left) is a design from Nicole, and Paul (right) is my own design.
This is the primary block for a new piece I’m working on.
The photograph is a paparazzi picture of Ethel Kennedy leaving Robert’s gravesite that I photocopied onto plain white paper. I painted the white portions gold (minus the cross) to give it an antiqued look.
The block is comprised of vintage (1930’s) fabric remnants that I pinned onto a square of batting, then I just free-style stitched and embellished as I saw fit. The two military buttons were my grandfather’s during WWII, and I collected the shells on Catalina Island.
