This fellow has much woodsier tattoos. Both of these Greenmen were cut from the same fabric. It is all about choosing which images go where.

Here is the real life, behind-the-scenes, photo-making yesterday. I’ve got to make it work after 3 days of wet and snowy weather! I will put these fellows into my etsy shop later today.

Big Man with Skeleton Horseman

Oops, I forgot to post this fellow that I finished up before I went to Providence! I’ve been distracted with the post show clean-up, getting everything listed into my etsy shop, and getting started on new things. Poor guy.

I was planning on focusing on some new animals once I was back from the Providence show- cats, foxes, dogs, but somehow got distracted and I’ve been putting together and sewing up a big pile of men. To explain that further, I had the body parts dyed, cut out, and had most of the head-to-body and hand-to-arm sewing done. I needed to decide and cut out the trousers/tights/pants and shoes/boots, styles and colors. Then sew them up. There are so many steps. Here is my pile so far. These fellows will get finished up over the next year or so.

Our pumpkin is still hanging out on the porch- no squirrels snacking on it and not frost yet. The frost is coming soon according to my weather report, so instead of show prep, I am digging up dahlias and carrying potted plants into the house. It is nice and sunny today so that makes being outside no chore at all.
