I printed this Dunlop banner on silk and manipulated the fabric with matte medium to give it weight and drape.  Foreground miniature by my husband, race driver Juan Manuel Fangio portrait sculpture by me. 

My husband shooting the miniature:

I haven't heard from my partner in a longish time - I hope she hasn't washed away in a flood! - so I'm going ahead and posting this pic of the dotee I made for her.  I tried to include a few of her themes - violin, the band Owl City, and the color green.  Linen, felt, embroidery, ceramic owl, glass beads:

Yay bunny! Go Team Wordy!  Cheesy

I made incremental progress on my Research Project.  There's still a slim chance I might finish it by the end of this session of the Games.

Washer moved to porch (observe temporary drain):

I was slightly derailed by the flooding rains we've had, which are supposed to continue tomorrow....  Tongue

Finally purchased this pic, which is one of my favorites of Ernest because he looks like such a nerd and doesn't seem aware he's being photographed.  And what the heck is he wearing?  He doesn't seem dressed for his part of a diplomat in the film, so I'm guessing it is one of his own outfits on a day off.   Smiley

Brief Description:  I made this little sign for the cabinet of curiosities/bathroom to remind people to run the fan while on the go because otherwise the room is rather, shall we say, unprivate as to bathroom type sounds.

Here's my kitchen garden.  The fence is concrete reinforcing wire and chicken wire, with rocks at the base which were dug out of the garden soil (yes, we have LOTS of rocks!).  The rocks keep armadillos from digging under the wire.  This fence is about 5 feet tall, short enough for deer to jump over, but they avoid entering small spaces, so they have never jumped into this garden.
