Challenge #9-....and the Oscar goes to.....

Well, our movies are not Ocsar winners but they are winners at our house.

Thing 1 and I are the only ones participating this week and we chose Harry Potter and Toy Story 1. I took the easy route this week and finally finished my golden snitch from a few weeks ago. I know, kind of cheesy but I could not think of anything to do- it is weird but I don't really have an all time favorite movie. My boys are lucky to have lots of Harry Potter stuff around thanks to the great scarfs and mittens knit by Kathy. I thought it was perfect backdrop for the photo of my snitch. I followed Kathy's pattern for the golden snitch but I am not happy with how the edges of my knitting turns out. I think I need some help there- it always tends to be too loose.

Thing 1 on the other hand loves all movies it seems. But for this week he settled on Toy Story 1 and the little green army men. He chose to make these out of clay and they turned out awesome. He wanted a whole army of them but they took more time than he had this week..... but I think they turned out great.

These little guys measure about 2 1/2' inches tall, are formed out of clay and then baked. My son would spend all day working with and molding clay if it were not for school and homework. It is so fun to see what he creates.

Looking forward to the next challenge- maybe it will be something that all of us can do. Who knows?

These are fantastic. I was never into clay but might have to try my luck now that I have seen your work. Great work.

Thing 1 needs to make me a nice flying pig statue for my garden!
