3/4 of a robot done....

I am so letting the team down lately. Being a new (again) homeowner has really sucked up the free time for robot building. I have a robot about 3/4 of the way done, just no legs/wheels/locomotion for it yet. I have found that drilling through sheet stainless steel is a major PITA, even with a high end bit.

Since the weather here has been very mild for summer (not one 90 degree day yet) I have been outside a lot repairing landscape that has been neglected for a long time, moving rocks around and generally exhausting myself after a few hours. I need to put my sketch books back in my bag so I can doodle a little during down time at work.

Also, I 'won' back my robot quilt square (#263) that is now part of a 4 square collage of skulls (one from Snow Globe a Day and one from Sun a Day). The proceeds went to support Becky's Fund - a national domestic violence awareness charity. It was also displayed in Richmond at Gallery 5 as part of Noah Scalin's Skull Appreciation exhibit. It now resides in a hallway in our house with other fabric art and pictures.

Ok, back to work and hopefully back to robots soon!
