I will stitch together a large peace sign and a couple of pink hearts. This custom order will be used in a kids clothing display in a nice upscale shop. Dude (read, amazement).
If I have time I will also stuff my rainbow curly star. It’s in this pic looking like a crazy spider, far right.
I created patterns by enlarging the symbols and stretching them in various ways to reach the 24″ on the peace sign and about 22″ on the hearts.
The work on the fat pillows last week was a pleasure and this collection will be too.
The sun is out, the day is fresh. I’m listening to the radio — Toni Collette on Fresh Air.
It is Rachel Maddow’s birthday and tomorrow, mine. Whoo hoo, Aries!
Here are my day dreams, my efforts to bring some light and love into our world.
I’m so lucky to get to do this, to have this time and space and health to manipulate my materials. Carpel tunnel be damned. I try to go easy.
These little robins live in my laundry room/shipping and pattern hanging area. I found them and their nest at my favorite thrift store. I actually have about 10 of them. Some have eyes that weren’t placed very carefully on their little heads. I can fix them.
They may end up as companions for the bottle dolls I’ve imagined but have not yet brought into 3-D.
The bottle dolls will use recycled plastic creamer bottles that are shaped like large Victorian ladies.
I will dress them in papier mache and give them the jeweled snake grass wands I made a few years back.
