I haven't lost the challenge on the second day, I promise. My internet connection is slow and I can't upload any images, sadly. But, I made him---he's blue with beady eyes and a big pastel striped nose with wonky hair. He's also not a square! I'll post him as soon as things start speeding up around here. It's very cold out, maybe that has something to do with the connection (frozen air-waves?). Slow internet is sad on a cold day like this when I don't want to leave the house, but I have been listening to Elvis Costello and he is warming me up.
My name is Nichol and I like to make things with my hands. I draw little creatures with tiny pens in tiny sketchbooks while I drink my coffee or watch my son play with trains. Then, late at night, like a little elf (of the shoe cobbling variety), I bring these little creatures to life. I love to make them. I sew them carefully, with love and patience. I use a large variety of textures to encourage hugs and snuggling. Making these fellows (and ladies) add so much joy and whimsy to my days. It is wonderful to have my humble creative pursuits appreciated and I hope that when you bring a Pink Cheeked friend into your life that they sit on your couch and fill you with joy and wonder.
