they've started a gang, and are now harassing my bosch figure. i will have to make a bosch gang to fight back

or i could train them to dance.

these two are new in the shop today. i like them a lot - i went to the Fancy Felt store and bought some Fancy Felt, so they're pretty nice.

i'm hosting a Flight of the Concords pizza luncheon here at home in like 30 mins. thanks, rosati's and comcast on-demand.

my take on Hieronymus

if i had the funding, a venue, and a year to work, i'd make The Garden Of Earthy Delights, in fiber and plush form. and then i'd have a big party inside of it, and we'd all eat strawberries.

this little red fellow though, he's from the st anthony triptych. or i guess, he's my felt interpretation of the bosch creature.

i like these little guys so much, because they look like baby houses. as if someday, if they eat enough children's fingerbones, they will grow up to be real witch-cottages. for now though, they flock and scuttle around my studio, nipping at my toes and making awful screeching noises.

also, collin david is a gentleman and a scholar.

blood clots in my butt for sitting at my sewing-desk for so long!
i lead an exciting life.

here's a story

last night, i had a dream that baba yaga came for me, and she was pissed, and started throwing sharp-clawed chicken feet at me and screaming something or other. so, i woke up like.. "um. hm. maybe i should explain that i'm making little chicken houses out of respect, because i love old stories and i think they're far better for you than anything on tv or facebooks."

so, this house i made today, special for baba yaga. if you go to see her, you are to bring her blue roses to show respect, and maybe she will grant you wishes in exchange, and maybe she will make them into tea, and maybe, as my friend piotr says, maybe she will still eat you anyway. in any case, i made her a little house and covered it in sprawling blue roses.

also in progress...

there is not enough time in the day to make all the crazy things running around in my head.
this is the prototype, and it's spoken for, it belongs to a very special little man in my life, it will be on his desk on monday, la la la la la ping.

but! fear not. i will be making more! in different colors and shapes and personalities. because i want one for myself. and everyone else should have a little baba yaga chicken shack running around on their desk.


this one is bigger! i'm keeping track of my hours on this one also, and it's not pretty so far. at some point soon i may have to raise my prices. i dunno.

i also need someone to clean up after me.

i gotta go find a sandwich.
