Yes, that's right....I said NEW WORK!!!! The Procrastination Princess has a burr up her *** about doing a piece for the SAQA "A Sense of Humor" as I have 2 wonderful inspirations that, when combined, make (what I consider) a rather funny piece. Now, "cute" is not my style so it's pretty abstract but I think, with the artist's statement, people will get it.
Anyway, here's a few photos (and you can see that I have been busy with rearranging my studio for more space):

Misty fuse to the backing
Piecing together the batting- I can't stand to waste anything! Thank goodness for fusible!
I did not have a large enough piece of blue (for sky) in my stash. Most of my hand-dyes are in my lovely studio in Nova Scotia so I was torn between making a smaller work (but still within the guidelines) or using a fabric that I normally wouldn't use for sky. The latter won out as I don't think the piece would work as a whole if I make it too small. Besides, it IS an abstract- more-or-less......
I've not made it any secret that, of my hockey obsession, the Pens are my favourite team and Maxime Talbot is my favourite player. His personality is so much like mine that I feel like he's a long-lost twin (yeah, very lost, since he's nearly 26 years younger than I am). Still, he's a kind and generous person with a (somewhat) warped sense of humour, he can yap with the best, and he plays his heart out.
Unfortunately, on a Pens team already decimated by injuries, Max sustained what looked to me like a fractured collar bone or a separation of the AC joint on the left, in the game against the Washington Capitals. The "official" word is "upper-body" injury. I know that posture and I am afraid he is out 4-6 weeks. I do so hope I am wrong. (I was- must have just strained the AC- thank the Goddess).
Here is a video of game 5 of the Stanley Cup finals vs Detroit last year. Max doesn't score a lot, but when he does it's generally a big contribution:

Quote:Apples and Wine: Women are like apples on trees. The best ones are at the top of the tree. Most men don't want to reach for the good ones because they are afraid of falling and getting hurt. Instead, they sometimes take the apples from the ground that aren't as good, but easy. The apples at the top think something is wrong with them, when in reality, they're amazing. They just have to wait for the right man to come along, the one who is brave enough & smart enough to climb all the way to the top of the tree.
Now Men... Men are like a fine wine. They begin as grapes, and it's up to women to stomp the hell out of them until they turn into something acceptable to have dinner with. See my complete profile
