Remember the little blue and white sweater I was needle felting?
And the milk maid head in the bucket?
They are finally together along with her cow, her two fat geese
and her gallon of milk.
The milk maid's name is Marge...a young version of my late grandma who
grew up on a farm on Saltspring Island.
Lot's of little details to look for...handmade fimo gumboots, hand made collar and
rope line for the cow, wet felted apron, tiny buttons, up cycled wood bucket
filled with a secret milk look-a-like, cow eyelashes (of course a cow's got to have them!)
The geese were so much fun I may make a whole gaggle of them someday!
Anyway they're off to be judged for the Sooke Fine Arts show along with
my oriole whom I tweaked and changed him from standing to take off mode
on an old piece of honey suckle branch and sent off as well...
It's always a bit strange for me to put these pieces out since they truly come from my
heart and my dreams. I love to create them and am honoured to find out
that others love them just as much for reasons of their own.
Wish me luck!
