I think this little art quilt is finished. I started it months ago and it re-surfaced recently. I was ready to do some more stitching and get to the next project.
Don't you love surprise gifts? I do. This wonderful crocheted rock was waiting for me on my kitchen counter when I returned from my daily walk. My friend Kate, who is an amazing crocheter and knitter among other things, was in the neighborhood and left it for me. Thanks, Kate!
And what is this strange thing you might be asking? Well, it is an animal cell made out of fiber for my son Justin's biology class! He had to make a 3D cell using materials found at home and this is what we came up with. Everything had to be sewed down so it could be turned over to see the names on the bottom and Justin spent half an evening arranging parts and sewing them into the felted structure. I keep asking him if his teacher liked it...so far no word. Below is a picture of what the cell was supposed to look like and all the parts that had to be incorporated.
And look who keep sneaking in our kitty door looking for food! A mama raccoon and her 3 babies.
They make a racket and a big mess and I have to chase them out. For some odd reason our cats don't seem to mind them coming in and sort of look the other way.
