I wish it were my job to build giant vegetables

Remember that giant artichoke?  Well, there's asparagus too.  I worked on these two objects for about a month I guess, but I haven't been able to post their progress because I'm blog friends (and real friends) with the recipient: Heidi at Hands Occupied.  She knew I was making them, but I wanted the whole package to come as a surprise.  It was almost an even bigger surprise: it was delivered to the wrong house, but eventually made its way to its new home.

My lovely photographer friend took lots of pictures so I could someday begin a portfolio.  TONS of pictures after the jump.

And now for some progress shots!

My friends suggested I make an embroidered patch to put on the bottom of the asparagus that says, "Ceci n'est pas un penis".  Yeah, laugh it up.

Here's a poll, because I'm feeling overwhelmed with pipe dreams.  What should I do with my life?

a. Learn Arabic
b. Learn sign language
c. Both a and b
d. 3D fabric sculpture
e. Design parade floats and balloons
f. Become a bell specialist (campanologist)

Thrill me with your opinions!


  1. Ooh, if you decide to learn sign language, sign me up. I'll go with you!
    Also, is "all of the above" an option?

  2. D, obviously. Remind me I have some books to lend you.

  3. @Freeze-dried I'll send you the info. It's not a uni class, though.

    @Sexy American Hero-- give me a hint! Are you someone I've crafted with recently?

    @Eileen - I'm no expert, but I have a feeling that might not go so well. Or I could be the expert in my field!

  4. @a.b.--You made me a plaque with my name on it, followed by "Sexy American Hero." It was right next to your engraving of Joan Wayne. In Branson of the Future. You're killing me.
