Trees In Progress…

You may have noticed… Steff and I… not so great at in progress updates and pictures. We swear we’re trying to get better! To prove it here is a little guy that’s in process now:

Little Tree

Little Tree

Crocheted truck and three pom pom’s for the leaves – this little guy is on his way! Way to what.. I’m not sure. Right now I’m thinking of making a few crochet and non crochet tree jar pieces. I still can’t decide if I would want everything in the jar to be made of yarn or not for this tree. I don’t want it to be too yarny but I also don’t want the yarn to look out of place with some other material. Unfortunately, I haven’t been eating a lot of food that comes in jars lately, leaving my “art supplies” a little low. Spaghetti dinner anyone?

Speaking of trees… here is another piece I’ve been working on…forever…

Patch Work Tree

Patch Work Tree

I don’t even know if I want to talk about this one due to being so embarrassed that it’s STILL not done.  It was a chicken wire frame… for months.. then it was a mod podge fabric decoupage trunk… for months… then I was super motivated! I hand cut and stitched all the leaves, glued/wired them on – and then!!!! I ran out of thread… lost my momentum… and there it sits. I plan to finish it soon though. Upon Steff’s suggestion I think I might make a preserved twig bonsai tree type base filled with moss to put it in.

PS – I love that you can see my awesome Martha Stewart Glitter in the background. yes!


The Weather Was Nice To Us!

I suffered for my art!!! By suffer, I mean got a bug bite in the park… By art, I mean yarn animals… By all of this, I mean we took new photos in the park!

Pretty Piggy Front

Pretty Pig

This is our pretty pig. She prefers frolicking in fields of flowers over the laying around in the mud. She is crocheted from yarn with felt accents, and her flower garland is made from origami flowers and sealed with Mod Podge. For the rest of the photos click here.

Unidentified Creature

Unidentified Creature

At the moment this is an Unidentified Creature. Although he looks like he and the space hamster may have come from the same location… He is made from yarn with felt accents, wire, and yarn pom poms. What ever he is, I hope a merry little army of these guys takes over the world, then enforces their jolly way of life upon us. “You earthlings will be play games, sing songs, and dance! NOW!!! HAHAHAH!” For the rest of the photos click here.

All photos taken and enjoyed in Prospect Park.
