|DH's ship in progress
Have I ever mentioned that DH builds ships? Can't remember. Well, he does. It's a pretty neat hobby and he's done it for a long time. Now of course since he's retired, he has more time for it. We have always had at least 4 - 6 ships (sometimes in various stages) throughout the house. My daughter has one at her place and the kids destroyed a really large one years ago with a soccer ball. We have two in glass cases. DH likes building ships and putting together large (3000 piece) puzzles. We have several of these framed on the walls upstairs.
As for our pottery project, I've just started working on *chess pieces*. Haven't decided on anything for sure yet, but may do a 'cat themed' chess set... with a cat king and queen... and I don't know, maybe birdhouses for the pawns, scratch post for the rooks, etc.???? Here's a picture of my first quick sculpt for a cat queen. It's hard to tell as it's only a little over an inch (maybe and inch and a half) square - but I didn't want to use crowns. However, she is laying on a pillow and the pieces will be on a base. Thinking that its difficult to sculpt so small that I will use the 'gesture' method... quick study that implies movement. I think that's the term.
All suggestions are welcome! Criticism too...
