I’m not so great at this bloggy thing, but sister says she won’t give me chocolate rewards unless I update. Wait, rewards? FANCY

Wednesday: well Wednesday was kind of a fail. Tried three different things to no real success. OH WELL I’m still getting used to this stuff really. Excuse me.

Thursday: Thursday was better- I put in an online order for about 120 badge backs so those will come soon and I can actually finish things. Today was dragon coming out of its egg day, and really I found it pretty cute. I tried two ways of doing the dragon- first stitching two pieces of felt together manually, which was time-consuming and didn’t really get the effect I was looking for. Next I tried Mum’s embellisher, which is really handy for making chunkier bits of felt that are a bit sturdier. I liked this a bit better- it was faster and looked a bit better too. Not bad.

Friday and Saturday: I didn’t do anything. I was pretty busy, but I’ve actually started really looking forward to doing this stuff, so I personally regret not finding the time ._.

Sunday: caught up a little! Finished an adorable stuffie and somehow made it monstrous- notice the cute face, and weird bulky sides. I am probably going to have to rejig the whole thing, although it took a while…I just can’t stay angry at that face, especially with the eyebrows somehow.

Also started off some projects for sister- an orca hairclip and a stegosaurus, so those will be ongoing over the next few days.

Also made this owl… it looks a bit like it’s sneezing, which I suppose made sense at the time. I like his scalloped feathers, so I might try that out with other things.

Talk about staggering my posts anyway…

I am tired and unemployed and feeling pretty low. I’ve been predominantly work-free for almost six months, with intermittent volunteer activity, and it’s been very hard on a personal-life level as well.

Because my sister has grown weary of my grousing, she has suggested some occupational therapy to get my confidence up again and give me a decent project to do. I’m going to aim to make something small every day that I can hold in my hands and feel better about. So I will!

Yesterday I made a felty thing. It’s ok if you can’t figure out what it is

It’s a fig, btw. They look like this you see

Fig?

At some stage I’d be excited to put some reddish beads in and sew a pin on the back…that’d look pretty rad. :/ To eBay!

I also made pie but that’s in the past now.
