Residency in review: part 4

Below are some close-ups of the puppets I made as part of my library cart. I asked the staff at elsewhere if they were an animal, what would it be and then made an animal-puppet version of them. The results were: a badger, a duck, a turtle, a mouse, an owl and a one-eyed brontosaurus:

Residency in review: part 3

Here is the sewing workshop at elsewhere, where I spent a lot of time. Can you find me in the picture?

This is the newly painted cart with my sewn puppet-theatre curtains:

Puppet theatre!

and here are the puppets I made sitting on the newly-sewn bench cushion. We have a mouse, a duck, a turtle, an owl, a badger and a one-eyed brontosaurus – in that order.

Sewing day

Today I re-covered the cushion for the cart bench. The cart has already been re-painted and the new removable cushion cover now matches my new scheme (which you will see soon).

This is the lovely sunny room I was working in:

Thank you to Lauren for all her help measuring and scheming.
