Country fungus

At my sister's home in the wilds of Riverhead.
She likes this fungus!

I placed a similar shelf fungus on a tree
outside my NYC apartment building awhile ago.
It's gone, who knows where.
Hope this one will stay put.
I don't think the staples hurt the tree, do you?

Meter Sweater?

What are we going to do about this meter eyesore?
Think I'll be able to make it a sweater?

Peas in a Pod

Choose any amigurumi, I'll make it for you, I offered.
Marilyn looked through the free patterns on the Lion Brand
site and chose these two lovers.
Sure, I agreed... but NO little veil and hat.
Which one do YOU prefer?

Trying to create a fancy blog title.
Been fooling around with various fonts and images. This is an edited version of my "read" blanket.

Meryl Mermaid

Here is Ethel Mermaid's cousin,
from the purple side of the family.

Not quite a Golden Retriever

After viewing my blog, my boss kvelled.
"What is your favorite animal?" I asked.
Golden Retriever.
The closest was a Lab pattern from PlanetJune's website.
She dug it.

Ethel Mermaid

Ethel Mermaid

For Robin

Mermaid - the process #4

Some final touches, jewelry and sea shells and she will be ready to dive into her adventures. Her mouth is red felt, attached with the handy hot glue gun.
Ethel Mermaid's fine figure was inspired by our old friend,
The Venus of Willendorf. (She's our next project).

Mermaid - the process #3

This large tail will help our mermaid swim. And the color works too.

Mermaid - the process # 2

While thinking about enlarging the tail, other features began to take shape. Ever hear of a lactating mermaid? She's capable.

Mermaid - the process #1

Started with a pattern for a bunny, head and torso.
Body is light turquoise.

Tail is not quite right. Will try a bigger one soon.
