While my brother was here visiting, I had a serious lapse in sewing and blogging. Before his visit, I had worked out a right facing version of the seahorse that included some redesign. I figured out ways to make the sewing easier and gave it a curvier tail. However, in the redesign, I now have a head that requires partial seams. So one more redesign is in order before I try to make up a tutorial.
Here, the new right facing seahorses are meeting the left facing ones for the first time. And yes, I will be revising the tails of the earlier seahorses so they can keep up with seahorse fashion trends. The new seahorses match this month's color at the Rainbow Scrappy Challenge.
Meanwhile, Molly and Buddy claim they were also neglected, probably because their brains got clogged with playtime and treats.
Molly missed her sewing room antics and has been making up for lost time. Here, she is taking a snooze on the ironing board which is strictly off limits. I also warned her away from trying to chew on the thread as it moves from cone stand to sewing machine. Molly was so affronted that she grabbed the thread in her mouth and ran down the hallway letting the spool unwind behind her.
Here, Molly is trying to lick the neglect off of Buddy but she soon found herself using bites.
