Mia's cardie is done and there is a picture in the album.
I also posted a picture of the sun, earth and moon that I designed and made. I had wanted to make an earth for ages, but got stuck with the best way to make the globe shape and the right shapes for the land masses. Then Edward came home from school with a paper globe he had to put together. It was just the right size and had all the map printed on it. I made the basic shape from the segments in blue, and then traced off the shapes for the continents from the segments, joining them into one piece where they crossed between segments.
The sun is basically an icosahedron - a 20 sided shape made from triangles, but I replaced two rings of triangles with pyramids to make the flames. I chose hand dyed fabrics to get all the lovely flame colours.
The moon is a dodecahedron, made from 12 pentagons. I may make it again from more of a silvery fabric. This beigy one is a bit dull to do our lovely moon justice.
The plan is to finish off the set with a small quilt depicting the milky way, but although I have a few ideas nothing has gelled yet, and besides I have been busy with Christmas stuff. Maybe I will do some of the other planets too, Mars and Saturn would be interesting.
There is also a current picture of Charlie being a lovely warming neck pillow. She is a companion dog afterall, and takes her job very seriously.
I have completed and posted my 100 Things About Me list, and a "Don't Get Me Started On..." List of my pet peeves.
Last night it was very annoying when I sat down to watch Lost after looking forward to it all day, and of course it was a repeat. Why do they do that????
The third pudding was steamed today - will have to decide who to give it to now.
Tomorrow I will have to brave the post office to get Mia's pressie mailed off to her - that will be fun - NOT!
