Since yesterday’s cat took a while, y’all get a few quickies for the next few days. :)
My father used to play with these Lincoln logs in the 1940’s, and then in the 1970’s my brother and I put them to good use again. When friends’ kids are over, the toys sometimes come out. But I haven’t had them out to use them myself, probably since… the 1970’s?! (Yikes!) I love when old things get to have new life. And these toys are one of the few things I hang onto for sentimental reasons. Also because they are practical… and I just like them!
The cat started out as first just a face, then a standing cat but Chaos jumped up and became my model. (This worked out for the best because the cat legs in the standing cat weren’t going to fit on the table.)
I’m actually pleasantly surprised how she came out. Who knew you could make a recognizable cat with Lincoln logs? LOL!
In the spirit of learning better time management, this cat took an hour to make, photograph, post and cleanup.
