It's Autumn! And it's finally beginning to cool down in SoCal. We might even get some rain tomorrow! I'm too excited about that. Sweating in October is just not cool with me.
I bought these Peeps for my friend. Upon closer inspection, I realized that it's the same shape as the Easter Bunny Peeps...there are just colored orange with a Jack O' Lantern face on them. Funny.
Personally, I don't like Peeps. I respect them as food stuffs, but they just don't do it for me.
I'm happy to report that I made great progress on the Zoo Wraplan. I finished the elephant! I'm amazed and delighted at how cute it is. The green leaf he's holding doesn't pop as much as I would like, but that's okay. I'll live with it.
The stitches are a little wonky, but I'm confident they'll relax and act right with some blocking.
It's so cute, I can't stand it! I really want to make another, but maybe I'll chart a different animal. Maybe a tiger or a lion. Wouldn't that be so cute?
I appreciate your feedback.
Now just the bands and sleeves and it's done! I'm hoping to have it finished this weekend. Totally doable.
And for those of you in Orange County, I heard this morning that the art exhibit Slow Dancing is taking place right now at the Performing Arts Center. It's a free event and totally worth the price of admission. Check it out if you can.
