I am so excited that you have stopped by for a visit. Up for your consideration today is Granny Gert and Lil' Dilly. Now in the Land of Nod, everyone knows that Granny is a very gentle ole soul and that she has a very special fondness for little strays.
Granny Gert is an original BCF design. She is approximately 7" tall and is made of walnut-aged osnaburg. Her facial features are needle-sculpted. Her hair, which peaks out of her cheesecloth scarf, is aged flax and her glasses are of rusty wire.
Her dress is available in three colors ~~
carmel brown with tiny tan daisies cotton print
black/tan mini check homespun
drab gree/tan mini check homespun
Her apron is made from an antique Bemis feedsack I acquired from our local grain silo. I have reproduced the "Bemis" logo on the front. +++A very special "thank you" goes out to my dear friend, Mary, who worked up the logo for me.+++
Her basket has been painted and aged giving it a sweet, old age patina. The dainty flowers have been attached to rusty wire stems and are securely anchored in the basket.
And last, but not least, is Lil' Dilly. The lucky little duckie who has found Granny. She is made of painted and aged muslin. Her top-knot and wings are aged flax and her feet are made of rusty wire. Her all-too-big- for-her-body feet, that is...heehee!
As with all my offerings, I use only quilt shop quality fabrics with special attention given to detail.
if you should feel "needful" of ole Gert and Dilly, please kindly email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your color choice. Special orders are ALWAYS welcome. Cost is a mere $34.50 plus air fare. She will come signed and dated along with a special little "thank you" from my home to yours.
I live in the beautiful countryside in a small town in lower West Michigan.
I am a self-taught artist and have experimented with many different mediums over the years. My passion is creating in fabric. I have a love for antiques and all things primitive and try to reflect this in my art.
My huband is my Mr. Wonderful and best friend. Between us we have four grown children who have blessed us with eight truly awesome grandchildren.
I love God and am a Christian woman. My family and friends are my life.
