Henrietta gets a Legband

I struggle with how to sign my name to my felt sculptures. Since I'm about to send Henrietta off to the Sonoma County Harvest Fair, I knew I had to have my name on her somewhere. She's not permanently attached to her base, so simply woodburning my name on the base wouldn't work. So I finally came up with the idea of a legband. I figured out how to run muslin fabric through my printer, and voila! She's banded with "Property of Nancy Lorenz."

Just finished this for Mary, a.k.a. our "other daughter" for part of her Halloween Costume. She's going to be "Harly Quinn," a character from Batman comics - I never heard of her, but supposedly she's an accomplice of the Joker, and carries a large pop gun.
This is the most unusual thing I've ever needle-felted! I hope she likes it.

Mary gave me these images to work from. As you can see, there were several renditions of the gun...

New Mailbox

Dave & I found a brand-new spanking clean white mailbox at a garage sale last Spring for $3. We knew immediately what had to happen. Thank you, Amelia for giving us the coolest mailbox around!!

Our neighbor is a fireman.
