Meet Valentine, my newest mascot. He was begun in an online class by Alison Marano in 2003, and completed just this morning. Actually, it isn't quite accurate to call him a Un-Finished Object, as the only original piece of him I was able to find was a single ear... Once I tracked down the origins of the ear however, I had to make the rest of him.
And hey! the ear is no longer under my cutting table. One more UFO completed!
It isn't often that a project comes together without a hitch, but this one came close. OK, well I *wanted* him to be blue, but no, the blues I picked out for him just didn't suit him. So, red/orange/fuschia it is.
This is also the first time I am completely satisified with a needle-sculpted head. My bio-rhythms (remember them?) must be in a good alignment or something.
Thanks, Alison, for a wonderful pattern.
