I have been way overdue on many projects and last night I found myself trying to finish one up for this weekend. I realize that I am long past the procrastination stage. Blah, I blame it on my meds. Some of my spark has been diminished; the manic has been dialed down to almost nil. And this, so many things that need done and I have yet to start some.
I sorely underestimated supplies and scrambled to find solutions. Thankfully, a friend of mine is bailing me out. But while that was going on I had to hand cut things out aka “fussy” cut. Even though I own a cutting machine, I don’t trust it to cut things out. Way too much error involved when one has limited supplies and a deadline. But I feel that I am an excellent cutter! Check out my little characters.
I have been steadily working on a unicorn stuffie. I have a whole body done and now need hair and other small details.
My little guy was a bit horrified that a naked unicorn was lying about the house. poor unicorn! She is gonna be a pretty one. I bought this “Sweet Unicorn” pattern off Etsy from Marina Chuchkalova. It is an easy patter, the only hard thing is keeping the counts right. I had to rip back a few times when connecting the legs and starting the body. This is made with DK weight and so it feels tedious with the small stitches and small hook. There’s a part where to attach the arms with safety eyes but even after using them I had to see the arms a bit more securely. Children a bit rowdy and I don’t want an amputee unicorn coming back to me.
If you remember awhile back, I designed the logo for a local yarn festival and was also asked to join the board since someone had to step down. I am super stoked to be a part of this event! I made this flyer so if you are in the area or know anyone who would be interested in coming or being a vendor, please share! I will be a vendor with my soaps!
Oooo! A big project I have been a part of is a food truck wrap! I can’t wait to see a pic of the final result. I had gathered all the elements and sent them off to the printer and hopefully, we get to see it soon.
There are so many more projects in my list. I am going to be illustrating a shirt for my husband’s aunt’s travel group…”Old Ladies Gone Wild”…should prove to be interesting. Baby sundresses, lots of other shirts. I need a good chunk of time off. Even with the massive snow day the other day, I still had a lot of work to do for my day job.
