I thought you might like to see some other projects I create when I 'm not painting or throwing pottery.
|Vintage mecury Christmas bulbs from 1950's ,
|Elf from 1960's
The Elf on the Shelf was an added perk for my grandchild.
I also crochet on occasion because it is a good way to kill the time in the long winter months. It has been a LONG winter in Chicago this year!
|Hand painted chopstick pin
|Little Sprout hat
The "little sprout" hat was custom made for my grandson, Wynn Elliott.
|Letters made from maps
|Food served out of suitcases and clothes hung on line
|Vintage cameras, suitcase, globe and umbrella
I quilt when I am not crocheting. Here is a quilt I made for myself out of my vintage fabric. I also combined some modern fabric I purchased; it is just a lap quilt that lives on the back of my sofa.
|Mid Century Modern Quilt apporved by Noa LiLou and Wynn Elliott
|Newest Granddaughter Adeline Ivy with her big brother Miles
I just wanted to share with you as an update
-there is more to my art than painting-
branching out of the studio keeps me creative and grounded.
I hope you are creating and growing as we are in my family.
Have a blessed 2014.
