Project 1 – Farm Animals

For my class Y is for Yellow we had our first project deadline this weekend. We had to complete a series of work. It was up to us what we wanted to do but it needed to be connected and something of our own. For this project I chose to make more of the wire animals, but do a farm series. My mother in law asked if I would make her a rooster for the up coming Japanese New Year. That was my starting point, however making this rooster was the hardest animal I have made yet! I learned some things about myself from doing this project. I don’t like deadlines!! I had trouble enjoying the process and found myself stressed out a lot. Making these on my own time frame I find restful and fun. Anyway, I am proud of myself for completing these on time Β mostly,as this was a big goal Β and challenge for me. πŸ™‚

  1. Susie, I think these are wonderful! I love how you get the happiest expressions on each face yout create.
    And, that rooster is amazing! The tail is great and his attitude is so “cocky”. Perfect

    1. Thanks so much Elaine! I am so glad you like them- i do like to make them happy always! πŸ™‚ and I am so glad you think the rooster is cocky looking!! That’s good ! I hope my mother in law will like him too! πŸ™‚ sending love

  2. Susie,
    I think rooster turned out great! But I hear you on meeting deadlines and doing things you haven’t quite gotten the hang of it — it makes me grumpy and irritated! πŸ™‚ I’m sure you are not like that in the least and are gracious about fulfilling the request from your mother-in-law! Soon your barnyard will be full! πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks Valerie! I hope she likes it too! Yes I get grumpy and irritated too! I don’t like rushing especially when it comes to creative things- it makes it hard to think ! Thanks for understanding! πŸ™‚ and for the encouragement!

  3. I love your farm animals, Susie! Especially the rooster! He even looks like he’s strutting. πŸ™‚ You have an amazing gift of creativity. I can see where deadlines would make it less enjoyable though. Take care and God bless!
