Introducing Gretta Godie and her dog Goochie!!

One day I got this hair brained idea.....and so I started playing around with my Go dies.....

and this is what I came up with. Gretta Go-die and her dog Goochie.




I used the medium circle die for the face, the flower die for the hair, arms, legs, the tumbler die for the dress, the rose of sharon die for the feet and hands. Oh..almost forgot, the scarf is the leaf die in the rose of sharon die. I had such fun dressing Gretta....if you make one, I hope you will come and share with me.



Little Goochie is the doggie die, and I cut his sweater from the dog die as well.... I had thought about doing a whole series but well, just thought I would share it with you instead.



Anyone looking at this could certainly just make one on their own and the placement...so enjoy!!

  2. Oh Barb - Gretta Go-die and her dog Goochie are just adorable. I swear, I didn't get any of that "think outside the box" creativity. But I sure love yours.

  14. How adorable is this?! I love what you've done. You're amazing for sure. Guess what? I got the memory quilt done. I'm just waiting on my daughter-in-law Jill to draw the face on the companions and then it's off to the quilters. She's an artist and my hand isn't so steady. If you want to see it I can post it on my "Hi, Mom" blog and maybe you can give me pointers on anything else I could do. It will look much better when it's quilted. I talked to Paula, my quilter, at the beginning of summer and we looked at the quilt top and planned how she'd quilt it. I'm so excited to see it done!
