Heading For the Finish Line.....

It's Almost Time.......
"Ghoultide Gathering" is almost here!   This is such an amazing event and has my insides twisted in knots with anticipation!  A normal person would plan and create all year long for this event but last time I checked I was far from normal.  I'm cursed with that need to work under pressure!  This has been a rough year for "The House of Soft" with illnesses, changes and even deaths.  It has been a tough year to focus and especially one for finding my creative mojo.  Two weeks ago I had just 21 pieces for a show that I normally have 150 or more...it was looking very sad indeed.  Somewhere I found my mojo and started creating non-stop and am happy to report we are now up to 51, still far from my usual goal but it isn't about quantity as much as it is about quality.  I have truly put my heart into each and every piece this year because not only was it a necessity to create it became a place of much needed peace!   I have some new pieces that show that "Soft in the Head" is still growing and changing but still remains true to its primitive and whimsical self.   This year I have a smaller version of my globes and a new soft sculpture with a needle felted face.
  I have 3 weeks left before I start packing and rounding up my characters for their trek to Michigan....my mind is still full of ideas and my hands can still hold a needle!   Wish us luck and I hope to see many of you there!  If anyone needs a souvenir post card that offers a discount at the gate please let me know...I have a few left!  "Ghoultide bound Oct. 2nd!

Good luck at the show Pamela! I met Paul Gordon last week (what a sweetie!) and he told me about this event so I followed your link from the website. Your soft sculptures are enchanting! Wish I could go - maybe next year!
