Can I give you a hand? This may be odd, but it’s the third piece of the new year. This seems to be a body parts season.
Happy Skull Pillow! Just finished it. These are the skulls I started while driving to Albuquerque. It fits a bed size pillow, so will cradle a happy skull in comfort. The count of pieces to be in the show is now 90. If I can manage a bracelet display piece, there will be more.
These are the last 2 pieces from 2008. They are now ready for my show. I will hang the show at 212 Arts next week. I will have to post a new goal, since the count of 2008 is done.
I did a little more on the felt skulls. Today we will spend the day walking around the plaza in Old Town. There are dozens of cute shops I want to see. And we’ll do some geocaching while learning about all the haunted places. Fits in with the skulls, huh?
I sewed the skulls on a pink background. Nobody could think they look morbid on bright pink. Today we are going to see the church built with money given by Billy the Kid to Sister Blandina.
This is how they look now. My thumb is too sore to sew anymore, for now. Number 318, 319, 1nd 320.
This is the result of looking at the Skull a Day book. Picture 1.
By the way, I was knitting slippers for Karen yesterday. I’ll get back to them when my thumb stops being a pain.
Circles on pink, just finished. The applique was done months ago, but the banner was assembled today. Number 312. Since it was a lot of work to sew it together, I think it needs to be counted as a finished piece.
You have seen the large skulls before, but the dangles are new. I will count them as one, 310.
Number 308, this is the back for the red and blue skull disc. It will get dangles before it’s done.
