After I hung up from that conversation, I was excited, too, and decided to make her a Halloween something. But what? Something that I could finish and get in the mail.
Eek is cloth and clay
and was a bit of a rush job.
The cloth body went pretty quickly:
choose fabrics, cut strips, sew together,
make a pattern, trace onto fabric strips,
sew, cut out, stuff, add clay for the face.
Then quite a few hours were spent watching Netflix
as I added French knots and beads and decided on embellishments.
That is the fun part, slow, but fun.
Working on Eek took several days,
and I got behind on answering letters!
from Naomi in Australia--
an arabic aerogram!
love Hannah's Grumpy Cat stamp!
Lisa at lil fish studios posted this leaf mandala a while back,
and I keep going back to look at it!
Isn't it gorgeous?
If I had done this,
I would frame it and hang it on the wall
so I could enjoy it daily.
I'm having one of those weeks where I want to make things,
but can't make up my mind what I want to do.
Too many ideas all of a sudden
and unable to decide.
What are you up to this October?
