The 3 hour drive to Berea didn't leave me with idle
hands and I managed to needle-felt a character familiar to any that live on a farm.
I worked on her in the hotel room as well, and by the time we were home again she had a little companion.
I was tempted to put a chicken or duck in her mouth, as that would have been truer to form,
but I settled for a little squirrel instead....to keep her on her toes.
Happily, I had no REAL ducks or chickens missing when we arrived home.
I sent the Vixen into the garden to play, where the Lavender seemed to have grown a foot in the last 4 days.
Another finished Illustration for Pippity Trimble...
The actual size of the pages in the book will be quite small at 6" square.
Today I get to paint a favorite insect, a Mantis; he is also a character in the book.
