I wish it were my job to build giant vegetables

Remember that giant artichoke? Well, there’s asparagus too. I worked on these two objects for about a month I guess, but I haven’t been able to post their progress because I’m blog friends (and real friends) with the recipient: Heidi at Hands Occupied. She knew I was making them, but I wanted the whole package to come as a surprise. It was almost an even bigger surprise: it was delivered to the wrong house, but eventually made its way to its new home.
My lovely photographer friend took lots of pictures so I could someday begin a portfolio. TONS of pictures after the jump.

And now for some progress shots!
|My friends suggested I make an embroidered patch to put on the bottom of the asparagus that says, “Ceci n’est pas un penis”. Yeah, laugh it up.
Here’s a poll, because I’m feeling overwhelmed with pipe dreams. What should I do with my life?
a. Learn Arabic
b. Learn sign language
c. Both a and b
d. 3D fabric sculpture
e. Design parade floats and balloons

Thrill me with your opinions!
