My fabric collections

All the fabrics shown in this blog post are available...
....and until Sunday, fat quarters are half price!!!!
And that is for ANY spoonflower fabric...so I ordered myself some Johanna Parker fabric too...lol.
I have the boo crew fabric...

All of these are in the collection.
I love this black one with the whole Halloween gang.

The characters are sweet...not scary.

This one is my favorite. 
Here is a closeup of some of them.

Zinnias and bees...
I love this blue

Here is the green background

This one is surprisingly beautiful printed on fabric.

Pink!
This would make a sweet tote.
Crows are so majestic.
It is like there is an old soul inside them.

All these are in the shop....part of the crow collection....they all can be purchased separately of course.
I have always had a passion for pansies...I used to collect all china and vases with pansies....and my mom named one of our cats pansy because she had a pansy face.

Here are some closeups....
Sweet harmony....they were inspired by some cherry blossoms.

This is sweet and simple.

More closeups...of that collection.
I have a cats jumping over each other...

And this sweet little lady.


Have a great day....enjoy the sunshine if you can!

The monster squad is here

I spent some time this week making these cute Halloween dolls!
I really needed to just have fun and do something different....it was just the right set of projects.
These dolls are painted in stages...here are the dolls with a base coat.
My favorite is the mummy!
All my dolls are in my etsy shop: HudsonsHolidays
This is my Zombie girl....she is holding some brains....lol.
I made it from fabric and free motion stitching.
It was hard to keep her eyes looking vacant...I really wanted to paint them in.
She is wearing a badge that has a pinback on the back so you can wear it.

See her green glittery shoes!

She has green eyes and lovely green skin!
She also has a small broom...her ride!
He also has a pin badge...look at his teeth...lol.

Each doll has a detailed painted face.

he is a sweetie!
He has his favorite music in his pocket....and a monster mash bingo card.

Gray tabby cat...with fall on her mind.

Such big yellow eyes....and a leaf pin too.

Here they are on my steps....hanging out.

These two are besties.

This kitty has climbed a tree.

Two spooks, ready to pounce down on someone.

I hope you like seeing my collection...and they are ready for adoption.
If they are not in my etsy shop, that means they sold out.

Have a happy Sunday!

Patriotic Tea Party!

I have created a Patriotic Tea Party!
This painting was a lot of fun and actually helped me get through some stressful times.
Art is very healing.
Sometimes just getting out the supplies on a big table gets you going! 
I always start with a large canvas (hobby lobby was packs of them at great prices)
I take old papers and with a matte medium, apply them to the canvas.
Some of my old papers crack me up....I guess they lied about dieting stuff way back!
Terrible how this kind of fraud was allowed, but it still is really.
I like adding recipes and cartoons too. 
Sometimes I glue some tissue paper too. You just have to apply these carefully so they don't wrinkle.
I drew a few ideas down....
from my sketch....I think it is a good idea to do this before hand.
I started adding paint...letting some of the old papers show through. 
I really wanted the teapot to have a flag...because usually teapots have flowers or sweet designs...
I wanted it to be different. 
Roses! 
I work on one area, and then go to the next while it dries. 
I sketched a spoon at the bottom.
Adding greenery. 
Folk art is very forgiving....lol.
It's ok to make mistakes or be a little sloppy. 
Things are coming together, but I didn't like all that space around the teapot. 
Lots of shading.... 
coffee or tea? 
I added a patriotic banner! 
I slipped it in and I love it! 
This is my process and I had so much fun.
This is a perfect project for a rainy day!
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
My daughter Selina ( with a fox camera app)....
She is a happy girl because she has a new laser machine and it works like a dream.
Her other machine broke down and caused all kinds of trouble... right after
quilt market!  Now she is almost completely caught up on all the orders and feeling much better!

When it rains ...it pours!
It's almost Father's Day!

Makes the perfect gift for Father's day 
or when baby is born and there is a new daddy in the family.
Looks great hung up in the man cave.
This is a dollar store frame...painted white....so easy!

Hope you have an amazing weekend with your dad....your step-dad, your father in law, uncle, grandpa or cat daddy...lol.
