recent un-busy

As of recent, doing anything creative has had some down time. My maman is ill, which really freaked me out at first (things are better now), i've been quite tired from work, and almost feel as if i'm becoming a shut in.
I rarely venture from my flat and it's quite hard catching up with people.

Project making has slowed down, yet there is a big list of things i want to make and do.
I considered picking up more shifts at my work for extra money, but that won't make me happy. Modding some pants into super skinny ankle biting/leg sausage casing pants made me happier.

Here is the last thing I made. It was for a friend's birthday.
'A humble slice of pie', very much a part of Veni Vidi Vici. I wanted to give me friend something handmade but not just any of rag tag/scruffy style of things i make. The pie slice is a single serve version of 'Magpie pie' from the Veni Vidi Vici exhibition, which i made with katie Jacobs. The slice is missing the amazing glossy texture of the original ceramic pie crust.

ANd even though it lacks the lovely ceramic crust, I think it came out ok. The raised crust stitching wasn't planned, but just happened that way. Beak and feet were left over from the original VVV pie, crust and meat are handmade alpaca felt.

Ace, a MagPie! I really like the single slice, it is like you can almost draw the rest of the bird with your eyes...poor little guy.
