Day 202 - 365/2014

Day Two Hundred Two

I am posting to the blog now because I most likely won't make it home before midnight.  I am helping my sister Sue again today...and it is much too early in my day to feel like making anything or working on anything.  Just checking in.

Day 201 - 365/2014

Day Two Hundred One

I completed Woodlee today.  He is my submission to the upcoming exhibit  If You Build It, They Will Come at Detroit Artists Market. 

Today I put the finishing touches on Woodlee...mostly securing his tail in position.  Kurt Menhart tweaked my idea of the tail being able to wag by coming up with this ingenious little spring.  It makes all the difference -- thank you so much, Kurt for your assembly skills!




And now...for a little video demonstration.

Day 200 - 365/2014

Day Two Hundred (a day late)

I spent the late part of the morning and most of the day into evening with Sue at her house.  We watched several things on tv, played Yahtzee, and then her husband came home from work and I went back home.  I got three loads of laundry, two dishwasher loads, and one sinkful of pots and pans washed.  I must have fallen asleep in front of tv at some point after Benadryl and meds.  

I was "scheduled" to go back to Sue's today (Sunday) but Pepper decided not to go in to work...I get the day off, too. 

I will work on Woodlee in a bit and get him ready for submission to DAM...I will also see if there is some paperwork to fill out ahead of time.  The drop off dates are coming up later in the week.  Sue goes to the doctor on Tuesday -- Pepper is taking her and I am bringing her home from the appointment and Pepper will be going on to work from there.  Maybe I can get down to DAM before I need to go to pick up Sue...but probably not.  Probably a little later in the week before I go to Sue's.


Okay -- so I will post do today's blog post a bit later after I have finished up with Woodlee.

Day 199 - 365/2014 (half hour late)

Day One Hundred Ninety-Nine

My sister Sue broke her ankle and really did a number on it.  There is no regular blog post for today (Friday) because I was at her house from 2ish until almost midnight.  I am helping her out for the next (at least) few days until she can get around better.  She asked me to make cabbage soup, so that was my most creative thing for today.

That's Abby, Sue's dog, "guarding" the red Dutch oven of cabbage soup that I made.  And I also just noticed this photo is a sort of self portrait...you can see my legs/feet in the front door door of the stove...the teapot is my head...I'm a little teapot.

Day 198 - 365/2014

Day One Hundred Ninety-Eight

Tonight I re-stained Woodlee and his tail.  His tail is made from an old paint brush that I sanded all of the varnish and wording off of...the stain acted funny on the sanded wood, but eventually took some color and I think it matches the rest of him pretty well.  I still need to do the final 2-part epoxy to keep his tail securely in place.  

Ready to start!
Right leg re-stained, left untouched yet.
All re-stained.
Yep...all done with the re-staining...I am pretty pleased with Woodlee.
