From the authors workbench
I made a crochet galaxy last week. Guess I was thinking of Clare traveling from Mxbury. But he wouldn’t find the planets so close together! I used the first foam circle I could think of and it turned out to be too small. So I looked around and found a piece of cardboard instead. Much better. Now there’s room for my rainbow, cloud, moons, and black hole! I’ll add them next.
I’m not an adventurous person by nature. But I think it would be fun to float around in space, looking at stars, planets, moons, and all the beauties of space. While I was writing “The Ship in A Cloud” I had fun imagining being alone on a spaceship hurtling through space.
I just finished a small rewrite of “The Ship in A Cloud”. I added a map of Mxbury and a glossary of the people and places of the story. It still tells the story of Clare, a farmer from the world of Mxbury, looking for animals to replenish his planet. Then I crocheted our galaxy.
Maybe the best part of this project? After I have fun with it I will disconnect it, toss the pieces in a baggie with catnip and come out a winner for my felines! They are stuffed with catnip! Clare would approve…
