A Watermelon Hedgehog? Or a Hedgehogged Watermelon?
Oh! Hi! I am an exceptionally lazy person apparently. I've taken pictures of most of what I've made lately but I just haven't found it in me to write about it. I'll try to put them up and keep the posts brief. It's better late than never, right?
But who cares? I made a watermelon sculpture!
At the beginning of the month we had a friend from Japan staying for the week (she's the best!) and she helped me out with making several things , this hedgehog being the first of them. I was sorely tempted by the shark and T-Rex carvings on Watermelon.org, but the hedgehog was too cute to pass up!
There were some, uh, issues, as usual (scooping the watermelon out was totally a bad idea - it took forever and the pieces were so not pretty) but overall it was majorly fun! It wasn't a huge project and it made the watermelon eating a little more enjoyable :) I'm definitely going to make that shark next!
