The Boys Are on the Last Lap!

I cherish a two volume set of the poetry by Christina Rossetti,
published in Boston back in 1900... that I found years ago.  
She asks a question that I have been wrestling with
in recent months:
"Can anything be sadder than work left unfinished? 
Yes, work never begun." 
Hmmm... I guess we'll never make the June 15th
deadline for the ADQ "book character" challenge!
These two guys are STILL a W.I.P.
They need a "crackle" finish and some attention to details
(like sewing their arms on!)  Tsk...Tsk!
After a two month hiatus... it feels so good to be back
on task  (doing the really important stuff... like this!) 
Thanks so much for taking a look!  Daryle


  1. What absolutely whimisical, wonderful faces. I'm looking forward to seeing them in total (plus arms *smile*). A beautiful sight to see your new creations.

  2. I am SOOOO glad to see you back to the creating again. No matter if these fellows don't arrive in time for that...I'm willing to bet they'll be welcome whenever they arrive. :~)

  3. Daryle - thanks for the Christina Rosetti quote. It made me think of my unfinished projects in a new way ... maybe they are "finished" in that they served their purpose and don't need to be worked on anymore. I can now concentrate on the "unfinished" projects that are still calling to me and the others can be crossed off the list. Glad to see that you are able to pursue your creative endeavors once again. ~Tosa

  4. Wonderful little guys! can't wait to see them 'cracked and armed'! lol :)
