The Carolina

I’ve been on fire all day, not sure why. Maybe because I had chocolate cake (really good chocolate cake) for breakfast or because I had no wisdom tooth (which has been a big distraction and bother lately) pain at all today or that I got a lovely package in the mail or all those things combined with what a perfect September day it was – for whatever reason I had an exceptional day. The package was from Lisa ( her fabric give-away) and I love it. It’s all great. I’m going to build a ship around the flowered piece on the left. Thanks very much Lisa, it’s perfect.

And I did finally finish my ship, The Carolina.


Because I am a banana here’s a grainy little movie of it in action. Not much happens it just spins around.


  1. To see it spin around like that, with the music playing, I just want to get on and sail away! I think all art/craft blogs should include videos of their creations in action. It adds so much. I love your work.

  2. I am so mad about your ships. The movie…well…made me smile bunches. Ok, giggle. Action shots are awesome.

  3. I look forward to your ship posts so much. Very inspiring! What is the scale? I wish that ‘real’ ships looked like this!

  4. mrs! i LOVE your movie. also, my mother made me a smock out of the flower fabric in 1976 (the fabric sent to you by Lisa). it was part of my kindegarten requirements to bring in a smock.

  5. You have some of the most amazing creations. I am so glad we all have a place to share these wonderful ideas. Thank you for sharing.

  6. WOWWOWWOWOW. Movie is just brilliant. I came here to check out your horses but this ship just takes the cake.
