Had a storybook Challenge again this year!!! My doll was my own interpretaion of
Susan Pearson's "Grimericks" Ghoul and Goblin love. I went for a cuter ghoul and green ( what else could he be?) goblin than the scarier ones of Gris Grimly...
and I called mine "Love At First Sight".

It was on display at the Houston International Quilt Show that just passed.
Joyce Patterson took this picture,from the show and I was so excited about
going after speaking with her a few days prior, but it was not to be...

I was unfortunately, not able to go, I was in charge of caring for my sweet grandies while their mama was nursing a flu. None of the grandies came down with the bug, that is except for all of us adults ....

I will be doing a small Christmas show with the group, this Nov. 21st at Holly Hall, here in Houston, my Kris Kringle was used for the invitaions, isn't that grand?
So I've been busy making dolls for the show or at least trying to do as many as I can...

Love your ghoul and little green goblin. You always do beautiful work...and you are a good grandmother. That makes you even more special.

they should creatures for a childrens book
you should send their picture to a publisher!
i am sure they could introduce them to a childrens author...?

Flora said...

DellaRae and Mar, Thank you for the
sweet comments!!!
You know I have always regreted not going to college for my art, I think a children's book illustrator
would have been what I would have chosen to do...
