mermaids and dolls!

Yesterday, while enjoying a 3 day stay-over in lovely Sitka, Alaska, I created a mermaid doll! My longtime friend here--Kari--is a fellow craft woman--she creates gorgeous quilts, knits and does beadwork--and makes the most adorable personable dolls....

So, yesterday, while storm winds howled around her snug home, she showed me how to create this cute mermaid doll!

we had fun co-creating---which we do whenever I visit Sitka---in the past we created fiber inchies and fiber ATCs (artist trading cards) and once she helped me piece the top of my daughter's wedding quilt...thanks so much Kari for sharing your expertise with me! it was a fun day!
