whale fest entries done

i decided last minute to do a couple of mermaid boxes for whale fest instead of more fabric. i finished the last one last night, and i don't want to part with either of them. i love making these little ladies and their worlds. and they all start with a name on a paint chip. (i've been banned from the paint isle at our hardware store)

now, to get started on the tail.

woolie winter pixies on spring break

Wow, blizzards, winds, and volanoes erupting - are we versitile or what. I can see snowflakes out my bedroom window, then walk out to the kitchen and see rain falling. we really must have angered the weather gods somehow.

however, it's been great creating weather, which is good since there is only a couple days left til the deadline to turn in entries for the Whale Fest art show. true to form, i have one piece done and two to go. i really had fun with the winter woolie pixies. i picked them up on the beach last spring, and now that i know what to do with them, you can bet as soon as the ice cracks i'll be out there again! it was too fun mixing the textures of the needle felting, rusty lures and hand quilting. i'm ready to crank out a couple more, then on to that halibut tail.
