The kingdom was lost. So yes, amongst the icky bits of yesterday I did manage a wee bit of crafting, but the boy child and his moviemaking have taken over every computer device in the house, so I never managed to get back here to the computer spot. He is making a film for his VCE (final year of school exams) starring Finn-Dog-of-wonder and the inside of my messy house. When it started I kept wanting to butt in and style every shot (or at least sweep the slut’s wool away) but I was banned from interference and most of the filming has happened in my absence.
I performed a bit of plastic surgery on this guy yesterday. I had always planned to make a beginners pattern with this big knight. So yesterday he lost his round base, I hacked his head open and removed about half an inch of excess headage, then pinned away a bit of the top of the hat as well.
I removed his felt eyes and cheeks and drew a face on, adding some safety eyes. I gave him an arm and some teeny ears and worked on his neck.
Isn’t it funny? now I quite like the idea of this project again , so he will get bumped up the making list.
and yes I only gave him one arm – not as some sick joke about Mr Ric Rac but in the early stages I only ever make one limb, my sewing room is littered with one-armed and one-legged creatures.
In a room filled with little creatures and personalities, it is delightfully macabre.
