The Glue Is Taking Forever To Dry! Some Works In Progress & UFOs!

20181230_023605 (2)Pictured are:  the last three pear snow person shapes I used in the how-to-do tutorial; Spider Girl, who needs another coat of the shiny black paint; what will be Spider Junior; and sweater shapes that were going to be Ugly Christmas Sweater Ornaments but the glue took forever to dry so they will now be Ugly Winter Sweater Ornaments. It has been raining and raining, so much so that I rarely have to water my garden. But all that humidity from all that rain is seriously slowing down the drying time for things I’ve been working on. The Ugly Sweater Ornaments were supposed to be a quick project to finish before Christmas, but the glue used to glue the shapes together took super long to dry, so they’ll be a project for January. They’ll look kind of like these, in the picture.18af30e080883678dbd394150d0d58a3

One of the pigs will be an Oxford Sandy & Black pig for me and the other pig shapes will be painted like other breeds of pigs.

The white has to come up to more around the mouth area and he needs the shading for his nose and cheeks. He’s starting to look a little friendly. I’m using the picture below, “Squirrel Angel”, done by Vicki Sawyer, as the reference for the facial shading.0994ee8fb15f2069a32e78e59ade1c32Squirrel Boy won’t look exactly like the “Squirrel Angel”, I don’t want to copy, but I’ll try for similar facial-shading wise around the nose, mouth and eye area.

So, projects in the works for the new year! Coming along slowly but surely! I hope you all will be safe and warm for your official changing of the calendar and your New Year’s celebrations! Remember your pets and if you can’t refrain from shooting off fireworks, give your pets a safe and secure place to hide from all the noise! So, Happy New Year’s Eve! I hope yours’  is SUPER NICE! Happy Crafting!
