We're starting to get prepared for Halloween. A friend found one of those Christmas animated reindeer by a dumpster and knew that I would want him. A bit of work later, and here he is (and his head still moves back and forth)
Bob has reworked a nice stack of skulls, but showing that would entail standing up and going to take a picture. So I'll post them next time.
Somehow a month managed to slip by. In mid-late August I was working at summer camps--for some reason, after being outside all day long in the 100+ degree weather with a bunch of kids I just didn't feel like doing much of anything in the evening--go figure.
Then, without a break, the new term started. I really had meant to get a few lectures done in advance--but see the previous paragraph about being in the heat with kids all day; No brain left in the evening.
So what have I done in the last month (besides summer camp and teaching)
Well--I now have five squirrels. Remember this one? Well, she grew up.
I made the skirt out of the fancy handwoven fabric (on the dressmaker dummy because it was hard to wear it it and take a picture at the same time.
And a friend saw my skeleton gloves and wanted a pair, so these have been produced.
And some other bits and pieces--now we're knee-deep in making Halloween props, so those will appear soon--hopefully in less than a month.
