what does one do when there is no power for 2 days? well, you craft of course…and then you clean your craft room. lucie is a needle felted puppet that i never finished because there was always something about her that i didnt like…her face, her mouth…her ears.
then along came hurricane ike and a desperate need for another battery operated light source. i rummaged through my unorganized craft room, found some lamp parts and then i spied lucie!
lucie was needle felted hollow because she was intended to be a puppet—perfect for a lampshade.
i wanted to spruce her up so that once all went dark she would be pretty to look at so i gave her a felt rose for her hair, eyelashes and teeth.
lucie giving me light to sketch by + a guitar playing husband made having no power not so bad.
