If you're in the neighborhood come check out Craftstravaganza this Saturday, April 26th at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds. I'll be in booth #24 in the far right corner. It's right next to the one I had last year and it served me well, so hopefully I'll have good results again.

I'm bringing the huge octopus I made from recycled t-shirts. Henry would be delighted to meet you if you are so inclined to attend the show. Keep in mind that when I say he is huge I mean that he'll take up the majority of the table and the floor surrounding it.

I haven't talked about what I'm reading in a long while, so I thought I'd update you. I have several books going so sporadically that I don't know everything that I'm in the middle of. What I do remember is George R.R. Martin's Game of Thrones, Garth Nix's Sabriel, and James Owen's Search for the Red Dragon. All enjoyable and none of them finished yet...though mostly finished in all cases.

Monster Pie!!

Ahhh, pie! Here is the first of the monster pies. It is made with three fresh monsters and topped with a cherry. It was very fun to make I hope you enjoy the pictures.

Completed Monster

Here is Julian! When he was just a round pink puffball it was though that maybe he should just be a dragon egg, with all his jewel tones and texture. But I wanted to give him more life. As the face came together he needed feet, a tail, ears and a sorta spiky mane.

Julian incidentally loves to play the harmonica and eat crunchy things. He is a handful even though he can be very shy about his pretty pink appearance. He's kinda big at 10 inches high and 20 inches long. Just more of him to love!

Another Yarn-gram : )

Yay for yarn! Mom sent me more yarn. This one is a thick and thin Jo-Ann Sensations wool yarn. I am thinking that it is going to be a monster, but I am not quite sure how it'll evolve. The best part of it so far is that the thick sections of the yarn are spiraling and it looks awesome.Quinton is a Vulture-Elephant. He is going to be living in a baby's room. The story is that a mom joked about having vultures in her baby's room and the one who requested this magnificent beast got an idea to combine the vulture with the elephant/blue/green/white theme of the room. And viola!
