Here's my latest version at play.
While the last one I had a hard time parting with...
This one was happily tree bound.
There is just something about the wool as canvas that
grips the tree and holds it perfectly in place.
A second skin,
a cozy sweater.
This piece feels like it has always lived on the bark.
Since our house is both to-and-fro
from all sorts of schools & classes,
I added a little textual story telling element
Today Pu and I started a story and told it on the way to kickball.
(Can you imagine a better course description than 'kickball'?!?)
Our "Once upon a time there was an incredible tale..."
...involved penguins and playing live violin in the car.
Maybe someone else will be beckoned to tell
an incredible tale en route.
It was a pretty funny act crocheting this knit piece onto the tree.
Snowflakes beginning to fall,
My tiny flashlight beaming as inquisitive cars slowed down in the night.
It's always a fun experience to be 'caught' in the act of assembling these pieces.
Most people REALLY don't know what to say.
Um, I think that chick is sewing a tree...
no that can't be right...
I always go with friendly and greet them from the bushes.
But, I appreciate the odd and think it adds a little
skip to the step.
Here are some quick bastard cousins to replace some I snipped down.
Not sure Gossie belongs in the tree,
but she's a shout out to the part of my
target demographic that is age 3.
