So here it is the end of February and I'm still working on it. It was my 'truck project' but my boyfriend started working almost 40 hours a week, so I wasn't going anywhere in the truck. Today was a trip to town to shop, so I took it along and worked on it on the drive home. Then tonight I realized I better put more stuffing in because the tube was getting really long and I only had the first foot or so stuffed. (Yes, I know snakes don't have feet, I meant 12 inches).
So tonight before it got dark I put some more stuffing in and took some photos so you don't have to sit there trying to imagine what the snake looks like.
I also have 2 grandsons so I may have to make another snake. It's fun though, once I sit still long enough to do it.
There is no head yet. I am saving that for last. And there is no pattern, so I can't show you the final outcome until I'm done.
