Hey There Little Red Riding Hood
Well, I finished it! The little red capelet I talked about before. I would like to make a longer one some time, but they didn't have enough of the same dye lot of this red. The color is called "Red Ochre." I had to Google that to see for sure what "ochre" was. It's a pigment derived from naturally tinted clay that contains mineral oxides.
Anyway....I think it's fairy tale sweet! I chose not to display it on the blue lady, like I did the brown one. I am looking forward to meeting some volunteers from Hiram College in a couple of weeks. Perhaps someone would be willing to model for a trade. (Wishing my niece, Linnea, could model again, but she's in school in Norway!)
On to the next project and organizing for the Pumpkin Festival!
