I now have my Steampunk patterns and the felted cats on my new Blog above. It takes a lot of time getting things written! Still need to work on other patterns, but at least now folks can buy these using PayPal once again. Still waiting for my computer guy to get back in town so I can hopefully get that darn web site up with dolls. Getting ready for art show at the museum next month with my Art Thing group so there's plenty to keep me busy!!!

It's been a frustrating time for me trying to get my "stuph" published. Web sites a mess, and Yatimi which I loved closed down, so no longer available to sell patterns. Thanks to Katie Bock who took the time to write me very nice instructions on how to ad a page for patterns and insert PayPal. I was able to do PayPal, but I still couldn't manage to ad a page for patterns, so instead I just created a new Blog. dollmakerlaura.blogspot.com I only have instructions for the felted cats on there right now. This took me most of the morning! I will be putting together all the info for all my other patterns in the next few days. Thanks to all who have ordered patterns from me in the past..hoping you will visit my new place soon!

My Art Thing group's challenge this year is "Doodle" art. We each start a piece which is passed around with each of us adding onto it, then we have a showing of the final results. At the show, which is scheduled next month at the Rio Grande Museum, along with the challenge pieces we also show 3 or 4 pieces of our "regular" art work. I decided to make a wall doll with doodles covering it...but as I started planning, I found I was still in a cat mode, so, you guessed it, a Doodle Cat was born! Fun to do, and thought it was done, until husband suggested I should ad hair on head top, since that's one of the things he really likes about the felted cats..."and whiskers would look good". Nice having a critic to critique!
