Totally NOT Paintings…Sock Monkey and Sock Horse by Tahirih

So, I’ve been painting a bit,  a few commissions for Christmas and such, but I’m in a bit of a slump, so I thought I’d try my hand at a bit of a different type of creativity. My kids love stuffies, and we found the pattern for the horse in one of their library books and thought we’d give it a try. The horse is all hand-sewn…talk about time consuming! I think she took about six hours. But I picked up a nifty old vintage singer sewing machine at a garage sale, and not only does it look cool, it sews well. So the monkey took about three hours. It was fun! Now I want to make a whole menagerie of sock animals!

After a tumultuous past as a goat milker, laundress, fine art major, waitress and restaurant owner, I've now downscaled to running my own Cafe/Gallery in an effort to maintain a social life and make a few bucks. I live a ridiculously idyllic existence in a fairytale village called Bella Coola on the West Coast of British Columbia with my charming musician husband, two amazingly creative children, and a dog whose favourite past time is eating rotten dead fish and rolling in poo. In my not so spare time I love to invent healthy whole food recipes, write YA fiction, play guitar, or curl up in my favourite chair with a great book and a gigantic mug of strong black coffee, all while daydreaming of living in Ireland...
