When I'm working om some technique
(like felting figures at the moment)
ideas will come bubbling up
which lead to
Another thing to try to accomplish
Only a rough start ...
but then :
I knew "exactly" where I was heading
thin layer upon thin layer "it / she" was growing
Ohhhh ... attaching the arms is such a pain !
Making hands also
And finally, late at night, there she was :
(photographed the next day)
my little mermaid
the split personality
...... half I'm it and half I'm she .....
Ahhhhhh, it brought back memories
of the lovely Esther Ofarim
singing this song in her mermaid suit on Dutch television in 1964
(o, my ..... thát long ago ?)
And the next one
but not yet finished
I almost forgot :
remember my dear friend H ?
(at the moment in South Africa,
where she, among other things,
is sponsering a village school with lots of LEGO)
She gave me another bag of goodies
lovely lace and the finest embroidered batiste you've ever seen
Thank you !
