I’m making a range of fellows for a project I have in mind- so now, a green man.
March is giving us a rough time here in Boston. After a number of single degree nights, the poor crocus that bloomed at the end of February are now mushy blobs of color, peeking through the snow. Tomorrow we are suppose to have a blizzard so no more pics for a few days. That’s winter in New England.
Last one for now. I only dyed enough green bodies for 4 and it’ll be a while before I pull out the dye pots again. Also, I will have to keep my eye out for foliage heavy toile designs.
This is a big man green man. A friend said he was the end-of-Summer Green Man. I liked that.
My neighbor walked by when I was taking pics. I made her pose for me because that perfect purple jacket! And, now you can see the scale, relative to a person.
And, he is #100 doll of 2016!
I got such a great reception for the first fellow, I decided to finish up Mr. #2 here.
I had fun with his vine-y belt, using several different variegated green colorways that I have in my embroidery threads collection.
I love the idea of the Green Man. I’ve played around with the idea before with these green man tikis. I know that lots of people will look at him and think, Jolly Green Giant, but no, he’s a green man and I am sticking to that!
I loved using this variegated pearl cotton for embroidering his belt and I even found a leaf button! I used more of the variegated thread for his boot laces.
