Many of you have written in to suggest making some sort of graphic showing where all the guts and glands live in the body, and I've finally gotten around to creating one. It's even got rollovers so you can learn more about, say, your pineal gland, should you have time to squander. For the purposes of simplicity, we've made the body a hermaphrodite -- she's got a uterus to go with her prostate and testes! We'll call her/him Hermie.
































Picture 10Considering the fact that I look at internal organs all day long for a living, my score on the name all the internal organs in four minutes quiz is shamefully bad. I only got 15 out of 24 total organs, isn't that pathetic? Granted, it was mainly because I didn't really read the directions and forgot to pluralize things like parathyroids and ovaries (and jeez, who knew the esophagus would be included, but skin wouldn't? And they rejected spelling gallbladder as one word. I say, look it up in the dictionary, bitches). Anyway, learn from my mistakes, pluralize,  and take the quiz. The clock does start ticking right away, so be ready to go when you click on the link and don't dawdle like I did.
uterus-pillowI've been sewing like crazy working on a few new projects for the upcoming Plush You handmade art plush show, including this Menstrual Cycle pillow at left. Hopefully you can tell it's a uterus. Plush You put up a nice interview with our guts up on this blog, so read away if you like, or check out some of the other incredible artists slated to show felted fabulousness this October at Schmancy in Seattle. We're also doing a few small pieces for their sister store, Fancy, which is having a Plush Jewels show in conjunction with the Plush You show. See below for the Urine Luck bladder brooch I just finished for that show. Well, I gotta get back to sewing, deadlines are a-looming.urine-luck-brooch
