    Making some MUTHA Goddess dolls. The big cream colored one was the first pattern I tried but turned out wonky and looks like a weird snowman-wasp hybrid. I think I'll cover that one in colorful crochet flowers to hide the wonkiness and call her Frida. The white one and the little brown one are from an updated version of the same pattern and better shaped, although I fuckered up the little brown one and made her bottom too small somehow. The blue one is my own updated version of the updated version. I'm hoping to make it more hourglassy in shape and less thoraxy at the waist and with a slightly bigger butt/hips area. I may have to start over as the curviness I added makes it look even more thoraxy.

    They'll all be decorated in some way. I'm thinking of a bunch of mixed mythologies, such as the blue one with a belt of skulls (Kali) and some Greek/Roman wisdom goddess symbolism on the white one.

    I kept stopping to play stupid games so I'm just now starting on her arms as she waits.

    Two goddesses done. I decided to give her two arms instead of the circle for these two. I had to write a new pattern so that the small size can be made with worsted weight yarn, which otherwise makes about a 12" or 13" doll with the pattern I used for the blue one (sport weight). I refined the shape a bit on that one, too. She got a big ol' butt now! (OOOH, did I just body shame the Mutha Goddess?? )

    LOL. It was a functional choice. Yarn crafts are monumentally more prevalent than yarn arts. The artist-level work is that which is done over hundreds of hours, while the crafts are those completed in tens of hours.

    In my mind, anyway. I do yarn crafts. I’ve done some large afghans that have taken many tens of hours and are beautiful to me. Then I see some of my sister’s work, and we are not in the same ball-park. Like wall hanging with intricate patterns of yarn or thread and interwoven beads. Or my grandmother’s crochet thread table-cloth. Those are works of art, far beyond the scale of the fun and also beautiful smaller and less detailed projects.

    Finally took a picture of this bedcover I made. Proud of it - it took me a very very long time and it’s only single bed sized, but I love it.
