knot thread stitch :: the peeps :: wendy crab


tiger lily, a painting that will be in "little stars"
miss crab might be my first real internet friend. she was one of the first people to comment on this blog and i think the first internet person i met for reals in life. [and set the stage for what became a series of magical internet meet-ups]

i love her quirky sense of humor. i love that she loves pies. she makes incredibly good robots, and birds [i know, i own one]. and the second i knew i was making a book i knew i wanted her to do a project in it... and she graciously agreed. 

tootles, a plushie that will be in "little stars"

she's opening a show on saturday  [dec. 1] from 2-5 pm : little stars : all the work is based on peter pan. [johanna wright  and thea saks are also in the show] - and i wish i could go just to see the TENT. it's at cella gallery in noho/los angeles and you should go. especially if you have littles. 

1. quick – without thinking what is your favorite color RIGHT NOW

green - always green - I am loving a sort of grey green fern kind of color right now

2. what is your favorite comfort food?

a warm piece of pie

3. why did you agree to be in knot thread stitch ? ;) can you give us any insight or behind the scenes info on the project you contributed?

I was honored to be in knot thread stitch! I did the finger puppets. I love that you asked me to do robots, because I think that is how we bonded way back when we met though the internets. I remember loving some robots that you had created. I also like to create in the sweet zone and I don't think finger puppets can be anything but sweet.

4. what book/tv show/song/blog/insert whatever it is here/ is just making you SO happy RIGHT NOW?

I love the tv show once upon a time. its totally up my alley - re imagined fairy tales is sort of my sweet spot, where I like to live.

5. do you have a craft/art/studio routine that makes everything go smoother? Would you share it with us?

after I finish one kind project I try and clean up the space to start again. I work in a couple different styles {painting & sewing being the main ones} and I have a small working space, so I definitely have to reset. if I don't things get really crazy in my head. the clean up is like a deep breath.

Me too. Me too. I'd love to see this work in person. And your work too. Feel so very far away sometimes and the world so very large.
