"Life isn't long enough to do all you could accomplish. And what a privilege even to be alive. In spite of all the pollutions and horrors, how beautiful this world is.
Supposing you only saw the stars once every year. Think what you would think. The wonder of it!"--Tasha Tudor

Meet "Lizzie," A New Original Corgi Art Doll



Do you ever get the urge to sew something while watching Project Runway? While an artist's doll is hardly the same as a new garment, the basics are the same. Sketch your design, make your pattern and to quote Tim Gunn, "Make it work." She is the second of her kind. The first is mine and is resting on my bed (sans pumpkin~!) Out came the needles and thread to create this mixed media piece. Cotton fabric, wool felt, wool from my friend LaVonne's sheep farm in Montana, embroidery floss and paint covered my work table. I think her pants are my favorite part! What do you think? Click Ebay button to see this listing. Auction ends Monday, November 2. Happy Monday, my lovelies. xo -CS ^..^

Adorable, the ears are just perfect, they say 'corgi'! I also just love that pumpkin. What a wonderful piece!

Cute!! Lizzie looks remarkable like a corgi I just drew for a fabric design I will be having printed at Spoonflower.

Cathy Santarsiero, "The Christmas Corgi" said...

Thanks, Girls :) Glad you like her. I try and make my sculptures/dolls sort of '3 dimensional' images of my Corgi characters in my paintings. Hey Jenna...I didn't know you painted too! I've sent some new designs over to Spoonflower as well, with my Corgi design. Watch for new Corgi dolls who will be wearing some of my new fabrics! -CS ^..^

Your "Corgi with Pumpkin" is just the sweetest creation!!! I also got such a kick out of watching the puppy video--what a hoot! That reminds me a little of what I go through when I try to photograph my cats! Have a great Corgi Day! dana
