Mixed media wall hanging

This piece measures 8 x 11 inches. The background consists of a warp made from a crocheted chain of wool yarn; the weft is batik fabric strips. The figure is crocheted and needle felted. The attachments are the faces of six, cheap watches that died premature deaths. Other items in the mix--decorative yarns and beads.

Soft sculpture lizards

These two lizards were crocheted and heavily embellished. They were then mounted on fabric covered sponges. The purple cover consists of woven batik fabric strips. The orange cover is one piece of fabric that is enclosed in beaded wire crochet. Both pieces measure about 8 x 12 x 4 inches.

Hairy Red Monster Doll

Here's the latest addition to my doll collection. This one measures 6.5 inches wide and 18 inches long. I plan to take it to Artomatic 2009 this May. The body was knit on a circular loom and has a toy baseball for armature.
