Hello Internet;

Now that I am done celebrating my birthday (until Ribfest) I am willing to discuss my work over the weekend… Ahem…

As many of you know I worked with Bard in the Barracks and NotaBle Acts Theatre Festival last summer. This year, I have been commissioned to do some larger, more time-consuming props. These props are an 8X8 canvas of Egypt and a giant flower.

I’ve been working on the flower. The petals require hand stitching because I don’t have a machine that can withstand the chicken wire inside. The needles may break and it will take me more time to fix the needles than I have. Know that I have been sat watching Rom-Coms and spending hours of my life stitching for your the enjoyment of outdoor theater.
