I am really enjoying making all the miniature, multicultural dolls for my etsy shop. These are my favourite of the blanket babies. I like the fact that they all have different expressions. I have made so many now that I will have to open a new shop just for dolls.

Desert Dog combines linoblock prints on linen with hand embroidery. This is the first time I have tried using the two elements together. I think it works well. I have been wanting to experiment using negative space in my needlework ever since I visited the extreme embroidery exhibit at the Museum of Design in New York, last February.
