"MIRELA RENAISSANCE GYPSY TAROT CARD READER" Judges Choice Award PLUS MY NEW ART DOLLS

WOOOHOOO!!! My doll Mirela Renaissance Gypsy Tarot Card Reader won a Judges Choice Award at the Houston Quilt Show.   I'm THRILLED!!! HAPPY!!!!   You can't see the front of her Tarot cards but they are pictures of real old tarot cards Gypsy's used.  I made them smaller to fit her hands.  The chair is hand made by me using wire and fabric torn in strips.  Her body is made of cloth. Her costume is made of fabrics from the Gypsy's fabric trim package along with some things from my own stash.
PATTERN INSTRUCTIONS ARE ON THE DRAWING BOARD FOR HER.  THIS WILL BE A CLASS PROJECT.
