IN THE PINK Art show George Town Tasmania Australia

Last night the 
IN THE PINK 
Art show started last night and I can now show my 
entry for it .
September started like any other month 
but soon led to sitting at my computer 
and Make the cut software for many hours 
over the two first days of September.
Then it was time to take the pattern to the 
force to cut out  (with one false start as I had
designed the legs wrong).



Looking around the room there is not many pink robots in 
this house! things were now coming together how i imagined .
With now is laying ready to all come together ready for 
decorating . I took a bit of a break from it TO THINK
OF HOW TO MAKE HIM STABLE 
as it was 16" tall I did not want the weight of his head to 
buckle his feet , neck or any part.
So he layed in pieces for 2 days while i thought of what to do.




Cut some Gears out of the darker pink and more gears 
out of the darker pink and added to the finished 3D robot .
Then and only then I was ready to put my entry form into 
the art show in George Town as i was happy with how 
"P1N|<"  
had turned out 
So he was delivered to the The Jim Mooney Gallery
 on Tuesday 
and Last night (friday 11th November 2016)
was opening night.

If you are in Tasmania POP on up to 
The Jim Mooney Gallery
George Town and be sure to check these Pink

Throw Blanket Holiday in Tassy

OK I can now show you what I have been making over the 
past 5 months leading up to Helene coming to visit me .
The week after her trip was booked Neal and I went to 
check out some places we could go while she was here.
While at the national park and in the gift shop I seen 
a through blanket that was nice and thought that I could 
make a very special blanket for Helene to remember her
trip. So on the way home we went to the shop and got a 
striped blanket and that next day I used embrilliance software
and designed what i was going to embroider on it.
So here it is 


be sure to check back again as I have some more things 
to show you what i made.

What happens when there is no shelf space?

The shelves are full and now it seems like the 
ROBOTS are climbing the walls 





I designed this after seeing for many months while 
watching a USA soap opera (which i have been watching
every weekday for  30 years) one of the actors had three
people climbing the wall. And all i would do is that would 
make good idea for robots.

Name that show??

SPUTNIK Day (First man made object in space)

Today is SPUTNIK Day 
 (First man made object  in space 59 years ago today )
So it is time for Neal to have another flag for his
bike. (though sadly he will not be out on the bicycle today 
as it is raining and raining and raining today )
I designed in embrilliance and embroidered on the 
brother embroidery machine



Tibbers (Korimco bear) another bear to tell his story

My name is Tibbers Korimco
I came from a second had shop and sat on the couch
with George Gibson for 4 months 
it was a very happy life.
Till Susan's and Neal's son arrived in Tasmania 
for a visit.
Then  I heard Susan telling Martyn to read 
a blog post from back in June and then Martyn 
picked me up and handed me to Susan.
All was fine till Susan got her scissors out and 
cut a hole in my back and Pulled out my stuffing
Now I know how George felt that day !
Soon after I was put on the Hoop
OUCH now what has she done she has put me in 
the tattooing machine 
Half way done (painful)
She put me back in the machine
and added some wording
Get me off this hoop!
NOW for some stuffing please
Ahh that is better
now my eyes are looking better too

very nicely tattooed
OK now I am in the arms of a BOY who will 
love and cherish me
OH big hug
Think now he is a little shy

I am happy being back to a different kind of normal
BUT.....
 
 
 
now that Martyn boy is talking about something called an
Airplane?
Airplane what is this? George told me nothing about this ?
OK I know what to do. Susan is not at her computer and it 
is still on. Be right back!

 OH NO this looks  not right! birds fly bears are not 
made to fly!!!
WHAT DO I DO ?
HELPPPPPPP ME!
I have a day to find a good place to hide.
Somewhere where I will not be found
SHHHHH don't tell Martyn he might forget me 
and leave me here!
Please keep my secret.
