FEBRUARY! my second challenge is from my friend (and mentor) martha...pictured below looking all windswept. i've known martha since the mid-1990s and i'm so lucky to have her participate in this project.
another sewing/textile related challenge...my mom is probably waiting for me to start using the sewing machine she got me! martha donated a lot of materials to incorporate into the project, so the first thing that popped into my head was some sort of sock creature...which could qualify as both fanciful and crazy! but i wanted to make something that wouldn't normally be soft and fuzzy. AHA - an insect! i knew that my entomology class in horticulture school would come in handy one day.
i'm still in the incubation stage of this challenge, but it's been so fun making doodles and doing research. i can't wait to create my creature and share the experience with you. thanks martha!!
