The bunny in the post

Hi again,
The bunny in the above post is my Easter Bunny with Egg pattern. On the pattern of the cover he has 1930' fabric. Here he has a felted egg. ( I spoke of this technique in my first blog). And his cloths are country colors. This bunny is up for auction on Ebay.
Have a nice Monday.
P.S. Please give me some suggestions on tips you would like me to write about.

Good Monday morning

BRRR it is a cold morning. I just can't believe how high the snow banks are. I have never seen them this high and I am a grandmother of 9 so you know I am not a spring chicken.
I would like to discuss Gesso today. Gesso is a white creamy primer for artist and craft's people. I love to use this on some of my painted folk art pieces. Paint a coat of it on your muslin and sand lightly after it is dry. This leaves a nice smooth surface for the coat of acrylic. This is the beginning step for creating that wonderful aged soft worn leather. You will see it in many of my patterns. My animals especially. This bunny has been base coated with gesso.

My goal to my blog is to give you free tips. My first tip is on needle felting your doll's hair on. About a year ago I discovered and amazing technique. It was so easy I couldn't believe it. I was on the phone with a friend at the time. I think she thought I had lost my mind when I began to squeal with joy. No more hot glue guns or stitching hair on. Simply lay a small clump of raw clean sheep's wool onto your doll's head. Then just begin poking your felting needle into the doll's head. The tiny barbs on the felting needle forces some fibers into the head,thus securing it. I carry some wonderful wool in my web site and in my Ebay store. Each bag of wool comes with a FREE needle and free instructions.
Stay warm,
