Now that YW in Excellence is over *Whew* I am coming too and realizing that I have stuff all over that needs to be done! Dishes are piled...laundry is clean, but piled...and I have a couple projects that I need to finish!
Here is where Madison's furniture lies after our painting party. I am very anxious to get out in the garage and start distressing. I can see being finished with the furniture by the end of today :)
The dishes....not so much.
I am kinda embarrassed to put these little pilgrims on the blog. They are in bad shape. I finally got a moment to paint a week ago or so. I worked and worked on these wood projects for a couple nights...and I do not like them! I tried to do realistic eyes....I guess the eyes are ok. I think it is the rest of the face that makes them kinda creepy....or maybe they need hair? I just don't know.
I think I have decided the nose needs to be smaller and the mouth higher, closer to the eyes. Maybe. Or maybe I just need to go back to "country style" dot-dot eyes and mouths.
Mr. turkey....or I guess it looks more like Mrs. Turkey, I love. I have to finish the little peg legs and then I can put her shoes on.
Yep. I am totally obsessed with shoes and have made them even for my turkey. It is kinda funny since I currently own two pairs of shoes myself. One pair of sneakers and one pair of black flip-flops. I think it is time to go shoe shopping. My toes were ready to walk off in protest when we went to church on Sunday. I think it was 10 degrees with the wind. Not flip-flop weather!
I finally got to work on my Frankenstein. I am thinking the eyelashes are not universal. It definitely makes them girls. So, I guess, I need to name her Frannystein. Regardless, I was going to put bolts on the side of her head...but now I am thinking of cutting flat ones out of 1/8" wood and just gluing them to the sides of the front of her face. I think I needed to make the eyes bigger. Again, just trying out eyes in hopes of nailing the technique and not using googly eyes for everything :0)
Looks like we need a little more practice.
More to come...updates will be posted...eventually.
