Green Merman

I posted this photo (above) on my Instagram feed a few days ago. I sewed up 10 mermen over the weekend and I am so excited to see who they are! They are very, very colorful- Spring must be in the air. Here is the first fellow that pushed to the front of the line and made himself known.

So why green? These fellows are fantasy creatures so they can be any color, right? Also, I like the idea of trying out a range of skin tones. Then I can play with all kinds of crazy hair colors, eye colors. So, I guess it is about keeping it fun.

Green Man

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.

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.
