maps!. Maps and globes! We saw a pink globe the other day that Lucy has got her eye on, she is fascinated with countries like China and Japan, and so wants to visit both. The place I would choose to visit given the opportunity is..., America.
I've never been, but would really love to go. Mr LK is, right now, sat on a plane at Heathrow, just about to take off and fly to Seattle for a week, I'm soooooo jealous!. This fabric is a print from my stash which I've not used much yet, so I made myself cut into it when working on some new pattern ideas for softies. Now, after my last post about the potential problems faced by softies resembling toys, which prompted some very interesting discussion amongst the comments by the way, I have lots of ideas for soft sculpture of inanimate objects.
In the words of Rolf Harris, 'Can you guess what it is yet?',
It's not quite as I imagined in my head yet, I'm thinking it needs to go smaller, and a base of some sort so it stands properly (the magic of photography hides the fact that it is propped up!). It also has yet to have some applique and embroidery added to the front, which I may well still do, so I can try out a few ideas and techniques.
Can't do that now though, it's back to a magazine project for me!
