These guys will be waiting for you!

All of these guys are currently nestled snug in their tissue paper...waiting to arrive in Chicago for their big debut!

My mom and I will be traveling by train to Chicago for Renegade this weekend and then it's on to Minneapolis for the Creative Connection! I hope you'll come see us if you live in or near either area! And you'll get to also visit and maybe even take home any of these guys...

Needle felted pumpkin people and witches have spun cotton bodies. Another collaboration between mom and I! She made the heads and I created the bodies and outfits. They are very large (about 14" tall) and I just love how they turned out!

I've been experimenting with different spun cotton shapes. I previously had a hard time doing round shapes...but I'm finally starting to figure it out! The pumpkin head and green pumpkin candy container are both spun cotton.

I always need a little collection of owls to accompany me to shows. And they rarely come back home with me...sniff...I guess they have to leave the nest sometime!

I also created another collection of sculpted head cuties. New additions include a moon man and skeleton man.

Some twists on classic figures including a girl with a cat mask, a spider with a fly and a strange looking moon man!

And I am completely smitten with my new veggie people! Ok...Miss. Banana isn't a veggie...but she fits right in! :)

Come see my mom and I and all of our friends at Chicago Renegade and the Creative Connection starting this weekend! :)

Have an awesome time! Love the pumpkin people in the first charming. I just got an owl super similar to the owls you are making at my giddy estate sale last is a keeper!
