On Saturday, I finished 2 projects. 2! Can you believe it? Neither could I.
At this crazy time in my life having ANYthing completed was pretty amazing. And it felt so darn good that I felt a huge amount of stress just vanish in the ether...just like that. For no reason other than I completed something.
The first was a set of 5 towels that I made for David. I'll put a picture of them up in a later post. They are gorgeous, though, and pulling them out of our kitchen towel basket on Saturday night to dry my hands made me giggle a little.
The second is Courtney's monster, Mad Hatter, though I call her Mathilda the Hun. MH (for both!) is a rather impish little lady who would NOT sit still waiting to be finished. She got very upset with me when I stopped at just one arm, and she almost danced a jig when I put both of her legs on. Her tail is her best feature, she thinks, though personally I think it's her orange wings. That just somehow made her perfect in every way. Complete. Whole. Intact.
I hope you love her. I had to wait a few days to send her to Courtney because I'm going to miss her. Never has a creation of mine come to life quite the way MH has...it's been magical and fun. (I have to tell you MH is a little scared of traveling alone. I don't know what else to do about it though!).
