Journal Entry: Thu Jun 5, 2014, 5:37 AM
Facebook l Gallery l dA Portfolio l Watch Me l Note Me

Yet again, it's been such a long time since I wrote a new journal. I seem to have spent most of this year gathering around me all the tools and materials I need for a whole bunch of different projects and ideas. I've been working away at all kinds of stuff, directionless as usual, trying new things, trying old things, sewing bears, sewing THINGS, drawing stuff, painting stuff, messing about with polymer clay. I like to hope that one day, as I flit from one thing to another and the mess in my work room reaches critical mass, I will miraculously find myself at the point where many, many projects will all magically find themselves completed simultaneously. But I suspect, if that would actually happen, my head would probably implode.

Anyhoo, the main reason for writing this particular journal is because I actually have some finished THINGS to show you. They are just called THINGS, they are little plushies with big feet and I've made about 20 of them so far. So before I got nuts, buying up all the fleece in the north east of England and making hundreds of the little blighters I thought it would be wise to post a few here and on fb to see what people's reaction to them is. If I get a Yay! I'll make some more. If I get a 'meh', I'll move on to other stuff on my infinte 'to do' list.

So, without further ado, I'd like to introduce you to the THINGS.

Little fleecy critters with safety eyes and felt or cotton embellishments, they're stuffed with polyfil and a few plastic pellets and are all unique, with their own numbered label on one foot. Just to make more work for myself I've also started a 'Book of THINGS' where I draw and record each thing I make.
