Exhibit "A", the beginnings of cloth books for the twins. In my usual fashion I have begun each page as I've thought of it, with the intention of finishing them as I figure out how I'm going to do that! Some applique, some stencilling, some stitchery. Whatever I feel like. I'm desperately hoping that I won't need to resort to glue - my dear friend J (the glue queen) would never let me hear the end of it. I am pretty condescending about glue. So condescending that I don't actually own any glue of any kind.
The barn was taken from here, very slightly modified, and contains this guy. I am rather proud of him because I designed him myself. (I don't know how I am so sure he's a him. I just am) I used a much-too-big applique design as a guide for the face and made up the rest. He is being modelled by a purple clothes peg and duplo building plate because I could not hold my hand still to model him myself!
I may just aquire some supplies on our Crafty Girls road trip this weekend. Five of us are going to the Craft and Quilt Fair. In Christchurch. Yeah. We've been planning it for months. It's my first break since I had the twins. (I don't count the two days I spent hospitalized with pneumonia getting iv antibiotics in January, or the many days either side of them when I was too sick to do anything other than lie on the sofa while David just got on with taking care of everybody.) According to the fair website and our accommodation website both are operating business as usual. Earthquakes be damned - I WANT MY CRAFTY GIRLS ROAD TRIP! (And I'm sure the Christchurch economy could use the income).
