So I got Blooming Horrors back out. I haven't worked on it since September 2005, although I did drag it all the way to the states with me last winter. Yesterday I got the rat, bat, and moon on using needle-turn applique. Pokey thinks it needs a cat:
If I actually stick to this project I may have it up on the wall for this Halloween. Then again, I may get bored and switch projects yet again. They do get done eventually. Sometimes.
Looking down a side street from the Champs Elysees last month brought an unusual sight: a melting building:
Okay, it's not really a building, but rather a fabric covering a scaffolding at a construction site. There are PVC (I think) details added in to give it even more zing.
The whole work is amazing. There is a website for this "urban surrealism" project, which is called the 39GeorgeV.
This work required 40 people and more than 370 working hours.
Rain, rain, rain today. It will give my bad knee more time to recover from all my recent walking, although I really do need to dash out for food. Ramen two nights in a row just isn't appealing.
Did I tell you I tried Doctor Who? I never cared for the older ones, but the newer versions have been highly recommended, so I gave Series One a shot (that's the one with the actor who played Bilborough in Cracker - the real U.K. version with Robbie Coltrane) . Have to say, hated it. Just not for me. I'll watch Red Dwarf instead, thanks, if I need a dose of British comedic sci-fi. Or Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, which I haven't seen since high school.
