Well I did manage to get a felt animal done yesterday and here he is
David the Dragon!
All hand-stitched, as I don’t have a sewing machine with me and non-weighted as I forgot to take some steel with me! Not that we had any room in our suitcases anyway.
I must say that hand sewing leather was not my favourite thing and it reminded me why/how I got the repetitive strain injury a few years ago, but never-the-less it felt good to be back at work. And it was even more fun to go around and take photos of him around the hotel. I think David is rather pleased with his new home and no doubt will be sitting in the sun whenever possible. And whilst he is sunbathing I will be writing his story down and making props to be photographed for the book illustrations.
