Busy at the moment...

Sorry the posts are so far between right now, and with very little if any artwork for them-I'm really busy right now, working on a few different things with more stuff lined up, and there's a lot going I really don't care for Pinocchio, particularly not the original version of it which just makes me want to strangle the little wooden jerk, so I don't have a lot of motivation there other than the fact that I've already started it, so it'd be rather inconsistent if I just said 'screw it' and went to a different story. So, please bear with me until things get a bit more settled!

In the meantime, here's a look at one of the projects eating up a lot of my time:

This is the pony plush I'm making for my boyfriend's nephew...and yes, my laptop is purple, and yes that is a DND book back there on the shelf, I'm a geek. I'm hand embroidering the eyes on a piece of felt, to be sewn onto the plush, since the fuzzy cloth I've used to make the body and head is too thin to do embroidering on and would fall apart if I attempted it. The eyes look a smidge wonky right now because they were kind of scrunched over the desk edge. Embroidery isn't hard, but it is tedious. And yes I am filling in the white parts too, to keep it looking consistent. Faetouched is one of my Deviantart accounts, in case you were wondering about the watermark.

So, that's part of what I've been up to, I'll do my best to get onto a reasonable schedule soon!


  1. I can understand your dilemma; I do not care for this version either. I have been reading "Little Critter" books for my grandchildren because they are not in the "Disney" mood right now.

    Your plushy is looking really good. Please post a picture of the finished product.

    1. I remember those books! Are they still coming out with new ones?

      Thank you, I plan to. :D Hopefully I won't forget.
