I got my Autumn 2008 issue of Mercantile Gathereings and my friend Jackie Schmidt is,
TA DA THE FEATURED DESIGNER!!!!!! Some of you may have bought her dolls or her patterns. They're so neat!!! The pictures in the magazine of lots of her creations are SOOOO NEAT!!!!!
I have many of her patterns.One of them has been laying here ALMOST finished for months!!!!! That's pretty normal for me. I usually have at least 153 items laying around here ALMOST finished!!!!! Anyhoo this angel doll is based on one of Jackie's patterns. As usual I had to kinda do my thing with her. I know who she is. She's
Le Fleur Angel!!!! I decided to needle punch her wings,so I drew a design. I also thought she needs a flower garland to hold. So I needle punched a flower. She does have a purplish/blue hand dyed wool dress on. Her face is stitched too. I just can't decide what to put on her head. I REALLY should finish her huh?????
Well SHOOT this was supposed to be about Jackie!!!!! I write like I talk,too much I guess!!!!
So anyhoo I really want to Congratulate Jackie & say,I'm proud of ya my friend!!!!!
Well it dawned on me that I should have given her info,DUH!!!! So here it is:
