Braided picture with mermaid doll
I decided that my Mermaid doll, sculpted from paper clay, designer Colleen Colquhoun Athens,
needed a permanent place...
So I braided this water scene, embellished it with sequins, dolphin findings,sea shells, beads and added a rock ,built by covering a paper box with wet felted wool that I then painted with Glitter Glue, and secured the Mermaid doll onto her seat with a string tried in the rear of the picture.
I tailored her outfit made with Angelina Fibers and ambellished it.

Applique and embroidery Pillow "Covered Bridge"
decided that we need to have pillows for those cold hard chairs we sit on when we meet at a local Library.
I added a braided handle to mine, left over from a recent braided chair pad, so I can carry it hands- free.
The embroidery is primitive by design
