Surgeon Dad!

Wow! It is hard to believe it has been 3 weeks since I've blogged.  I guess that is what happens when you go visit family (for my bro's graduation...way to go!) squeeze in a math conference and finally drive home!

When I arrived at my parents.....this was on my bed!

I had mentioned to my mom that I really wanted some legs/feet to model socks!  and super shopper that she is, found some and surprised me for my b-day! (These are socks I made for mom for Christmas that she dressed the feet with!....her Mother's day socks were finished with 2 hours to spare, she loves them, we forgot to take a picture)

I love the awesome pics I can get.  (I'll let you in on a secret, they are actually guy feet, but seeing as my feet are almost guy size it will work perfect for modeling my socks!)  Have you tried to take pics of socks on your own feet?  Talk about all the blood rushing to your head!  I love it!  So the bad news was these weren't just feet, they were legs and quite big to store in my little apartment!  Dad had an idea!

Cut them off, mount them to a board and there you go!

It was a fun morning project!

How did I forget to take a pic of the finished product?  I'll show you soon, maybe modeling a sock!

Everyone should have an extra pair of feet! Great picture of you and your Dad.

I loved this post! It made me smile.

That is such an awesome idea... but please share with us: Where does one find a pair of legs/feet?

Debbie said...

Ha! I totally thought those feet were attached to a person until you showed them "unattached"
very cool!

You have the best parents!! I see wher you get your faithfulness now!

Is this better then having the whole mannequin. I'm trying to think of myself as not being the only weird one. This helps my self esteem I think...

Looks like you and your dad had a lot of fun with this project!
