More Harpy Info

Anyway, I got carried away posting the pics. Her feathers are from the wing of some kind of pheasant I think and they are amazing the way they change colors in the sun light. Her bolero jacket is from a fox head pelt and where the ears were form her cap sleeves. The halter top is just fabric but it looks like snake skin. She is quite dressed for and with her envirement.

Now on to my Paula Johnson Fairy Babies class. I have 3 about 1/2 done. 2 large and 1 small. I couldn't decide on fabrics so ended up doing 3 so I could use all my fabric choices. More later.

Harpy Done!!

Drum Roll Please...............

Here she is, my Harpy, finally finished after almost a year. I think she is fabulous. I used so many new techniques on this doll and did things (like sculpting) that I never thought I could do so, to me, she is fabulous just because she looks like she is s'posed to. This was a Judy Skeel class, which is being offered at in April and I cannot recommend this class highly enough. Many, many very clear pictures with very clear instruction and Judy is right there for questions and input. Well worth every penny. Best class I have ever taken, and I have taken a few.

Just A Note

Your fairy is called Thorn Hailfly
She is a protector of the lonely.
She lives in brambles and blackberry bushes.
She is only seen at midday under a quiet, cloudless sky.
She wears purple and green like berries and leaves.
She has cheery turquoise wings like a butterfly.

Get your free fairy name here.

So, lets see....I have been working on my UFO's still. I got my quilt top finished and my quilt "sandwich" is basted together. Now if I can just figure out how I want to quilt the thing. It has me stumped a bit. So I switched off and worked on my Harpy some more. I have her wings almost completely feathered. Hopefully I can post some pics later this week.

Today we are going to a friend's house for her daughter to braid my granddaughters hair. She has wild curly hair and you can't do much with it because it is soooooooo curly. We are going to try 2 french braids going from front to back and see if they stay in for a while. I think they do if you know how to braid them right. We shall see. I'll post some pics of that too.

My ex-DIL and I went out yesterday on the spur of the moment and bought the book "The Secret". Wow, 15 pages and it is a powerful book and concept. I am studying on it and hope to put it into practice. Ya know, there really is a lot of magic in this world and it is amazing.

An internet friend has gotten me started on an herbal tea and I have been drinking 3 cups a day for a couple of weeks now. Yesterday I had to stop and realize that I feel "different". I mean, I feel GOOOOOD, physically and mentally. It just struck me that I feel like I am in my twenties or something. I had ordered more from her before this revelation but WOW this is wonderful. There you are a bit more of that magic in the world.

I feel like I am also trying to go through some kind of spiritual readjustment in myself and my life. Wish me luck on my journey of discovery and if you have any tips or words of wisdom...pass it to me.
