Weirdness

Is this where blogging gets repetitive?
Do you remember this last year?
Well its coming up again in 11 days..........



and I am still stuck on making these.


They are getting bigger and odder by the minute.

(Is this a subconscious homage to tonights TV?)

Last night, I think I lost it .

Its big.
Don't click on the picture.
You'll be scared.

Like a big bug sitting on a postcard.


I mean....would you?

Now I don't usually comment on my own blog but I did click on the picture, and was very amused to see the letter peeping out of the envelope. It was a mailshot asking if we want over 50s life insurance.
It wasn't a deliberate attempt to strike fear into your hearts.
I did say don't click.

They are great - wish all bugs look like that. Hope you do well at the fair! You're sure to!

So funny! Like the combination of felt and velvet. I want to stroke them.

arlee said...

I would DEFINITELY wear one of those! They are statement pieces and i love them!
Perhaps you are also moving into creating a different line for your art.

i love your big things...they are super fun and cool!

Dolores said...

I didn't click and since I wear blazers as my work attire, I would wear one on my lapel. Very nice.

Joei Rhode Island said...

Of course I **had** to click .... LOL.... I'm not sure this is appropriate funeral attire...but then I don't think you are one that worries too much about things like that....

Still chuckling...Love the bugs Jackie!!

I saw...I clicked...I didn't get scared. They're beautiful and in no way are they 'weird'. I KNOW how wonderful your work is and if I owned one of those I know I'd spend the majority of my day just stroking it!
BTW...got the QA's mag...great article!!

ethel and edna's tearoom said...

lol Yes I would! There's so much of your stuff I would love to wear. Just wait 'til my b'day gets a bit nearer... My prezzie list will read - 'Visit Dog Daisy Chains on etsy'. :O)

Heather said...

You may be still making them, but each one is unique and I like your bugs! Blogging hasn't had time to get repetitive for me yet as a year ago I didn't have a laptop.

I wish you wonderful weather this year. My Quilting Arts magazine has arrived. I really enjoyed your article. I've been wanting to play with velvet and stitches for a while. Thanks for sharing so much. Good selling at the garden art show
