Sorry for the lack of posty.
I've been sick basically since December 5th. It's gotten worse, gotten better, changed, etc etc. I'm doing ok mostly, but I'm always a low level sick.
Today, things, family, loves.
Rayna gets bigger and bigger. She's huge! I love having a puppy.
I made cheesy scallion scones this morning. See that teacup? I found it by the side of the road a few days ago. I love it.
I have three finished "long term project" crazy patches done for the crazy patchwork quilt. I still need to finish the orange one.
Remember that book I mentioned? Red Ted and the Lost Things? I decided I couldn't live without it and bought it for myself at the store.
And then I just had to make my own Red Ted!!!! (It helped that I happened to have a small knitted sweater lying around with no one to love).
It's tricky getting that 3D effect. I worked on it last time when I made My Little Nessie.
I used to be so afraid of making things. And so afraid of patterns. Now I just make my own. I'm getting much better at it. This was the first time through! No big mistakes and no redos!
I wish his head was wider, and he was a little less fat. But Tall One loves him and has claimed him for the house, so I guess I did good.
Maybe I'll do more creatures based on book characters. Robot Zot maybe next? We'll see.
Reminder: The illustrator Joel Stewart has a blog is called Black Carrot Secret Diaries, and Michael Rosen wrote it.
