[Apologies are in order-- it seems we've all had a lot to deal with as of late so posting is not as smooth as I'd want for you dear readers! I'm posting this a day late, as I had a related Alice deadline (can't show yet though, but I think you'll like it), and of course a little out of order. (the Pig Baby illustration from last month technically comes after this one. The last illustrations for Alice will all be in order!)
As this year winds to a close and the holiday approaches, it's likely that we will take a winter vacation in December and see what to do with the project in 2011! Thanks again for staying with us and enjoying our experiment. -meg]

‘And where HAVE my shoulders got to? And oh, my poor hands, how is it I can’t see you?’ She was moving them about as she spoke, but no result seemed to follow, except a little shaking among the distant green leaves.
As there seemed to be no chance of getting her hands up to her head, she tried to get her head down to them, and was delighted to find that her neck would bend about easily in any direction, like a serpent. She had just succeeded in curving it down into a graceful zigzag, and was going to dive in among the leaves, which she found to be nothing but the tops of the trees under which she had been wandering, when a sharp hiss made her draw back in a hurry: a large pigeon had flown into her face, and was beating her violently with its wings.
Poor Alice; no sooner does she sort out how to stop being three inches tall does she lose sight of her body and get assaulted by a pigeon. No one said Wonderland was easy, I suppose! Of course, with belligerent Queens, Mad Hatters and confusing Cats to come, Alice rather has her work cut out for her.
