A television set rounded out the last of the plush for the Gallery 1988 show. They are all boxed and waiting now to be shipped. These photos are not the best, sorry. I wanted to hurry and get everything packed and ready to go, and the light early this morning wasn’t the best.
A few things about the t.v. #1 He is sad because well, the whole “video killed the radio star” thing has him feeling pretty down. I mean honestly, if you were accused of killing off radio stars, you’d be crying too. #2 See the silver metallic stuff on the antenna …its supposed to be tinfoil. I wanted something a little more shiney, but couldn’t find anything that pleased me locally…so I had to settle for the slightly dull silver you see there. #3 I photographed it, boxed it up, and realized I had forgotten something..the cord! Ha, well I suppose this is some new furturistic cordless tv!
I will be updating new yarn later today so check back. Yesterday was a fun day. B had a playdate with his little cousin who is the same age. Which meant the lovely adult company of Sean + Amanda for me! Ahh the alure of adult conversation :)
Oh dear sweet cabbage I know I shunned you once before. I first smelled you in sauerkraut when I was very young. I thought you were repulsive…oh I had much to learn.
When I first tasted your deliciosness in spring rolls I denied you, instead claiming it must be lettuce to be so tasty. Oh cabbage, sweet cabbage….forgive my silliness!
So small it fits in the palm of my hand!
p.s. I know it looks a little more like lettuce (the green-ness and all) But I wanted to make cabbage, and sometimes when its late at night and you want to sew something…you use what you have :)
So you’ll have to use your imagination for now to see the face, but here is the life sized tree stump. The best part was shopping for the differen’t textured fabrics. The hardest part was how heavy the fabrics got when sewing them together.
To give you a better idea of the size of the stump that’s B in the background (he is almost 3 years old) and he is laying his hand on top. It took 40oz of fiberfill to stuff it, and I decided to change something once it was stuffed and had to take all the fiberfill out at one point and let it sit on our huge dining room table. The table looked like a snowhill. I know it took great restraint for both boys to keep from grabbing that huge pile and rolling around (hell, it took great restraint for me!)
The same day I stuffed it my 25lb fiberfill order arrived. A super heavy box, but not as huge as I imagined it would be. Once opened though the 5 lb bags of fiberfill puff out and grow. They look like giant snowballs captured in plastic bags. I will try and take a photo later, because I am sure your dying to see what 25 lbs of fiberfill look like.
Again, forcing you to use your imagination for the faces, but here are a few cake slices for the Gallery 1988 show.
