Just a picture post today. Poppi was curled up on my desk having a dream; I missed getting him actually squeaking and twitching, but here’s a poorly-lit still. I’ve been struggling with some burnout, so I set aside the plushies for a little while to do some regular embroidery. This isn’t permanently put together (note […]
Maybe I just wasn’t paying attention (possible!) but I feel like there was a lot of stuff that got elided in my public-school education. Anyway, happy cookout day from me and my 100% employee-owned business.
Not sure how much I’ll contribute; fun as it is I always have to remind myself it has to help sales. I’m hoping it’ll be a good way to promote the Adventuring Parties; first I gotta finish them.

I was kind of hoping today’s blog post would be showing how to use a Cameo 4 to cut minky but I’ve ended up only spending a few minutes playing with it so far. All I’ve learned is that it does have a lot more pressure than previous Cameos. I just have to find the […]
Making some butterfly wings and the new wash-away stabilizer is clear (the previous stuff was milky white). It’s very unsettling.
The heat broke yesterday, the humidity plummeted (mostly literally; it rained buckets) and I got out to trim the hellstrip, change the birdbath water, and generally enjoy our yard. The little plants that I thought were some kind of creeping vine bloomed, and I realized they’re not a vine at all but little orchids. Evidently […]
