The party of the first part

I’m having entirely too much fun playing mix-and-match with the pieces of Choly Knight’s chibi doll series. I used a random character generator to build a party of first-level D&D characters, mostly randomly. I wanted one of each of the 4e roles, I wanted four different species (and no dwarves or halflings yet), but otherwise […]

Purple dragonborn paladin

I’ve been a little radio-silent for the last week for a couple reasons, and this is one of them. I have wanted to make one of Choly Knight’s anthro dragons for some time, and I decided to make one for my husband for Father’s Day. And so I did. It needs some better photography; the […]

Charm holders and more Whelan

As per usual, I spent some time distracted by brightly-colored objects. Result: snap tabs that hold interchangeable shoe charms (Jibbitz being the official version, which these are not). I may noodle around with bracelet versions before Freebie Friday, but a single adult-sized one barely fits (on the diagonal) in a 5×7 hoop so I’m not […]

Embroidering on mochi

I had someone ask how well mochi took embroidery and had to admit that I had only done the dragon wings. Now I can say with more authority: it works fine. I had bought a whole bunch of flesh tones and decided I ought to actually sew some human-ish dolls. This is “Light Orange”, which […]

Lots of progress, nothing finished

One of the to-do’s in my daily Taskwarrior is “Finish a project, no matter how tiny,” and that one has kind of been honored in the breach lately. At least I haven’t ordered a bunch of fabric, JoAnn boxes notwithstanding. (That’s from two yards of glow Sew Lush for a throw for a niece, if […]
