I worked on some monsters yesterday. It was a good activity for the cold, blustery, rainy weather.
This one is on it's way to Pengiun Publishing in Australia, where her pattern is going to be included in a book about softies. How cool is that? I'm pretty excited. I also recently got an e-mail asking me to apply to be in a new book from Lark Publishing about beads and quilts. I better get working on that this week! You know what is the best part about participating in these sorts of projects? Free books, of course! I'm really looking forward to seeing the Softies book.
I also have a blue monster and a green monster nearly complete, and I'll be putting them in the shop, hopefully by the weekend.
Here you can see that the chickens are hoping the fuzzy pink thing is some new kind of food for them:
Poor chucks spent the day under the porch yesterday, it was raining so hard. I think we have a second layer now, though. I got two eggs yesterday, one was sort of pointy and blotchy, which makes me think someone laid their first egg! I just ordered 100 egg cartons, so they better all get to work soon.
