Nobbes, is cousin to that awesome sidekick to that Cal kid, Hobbes. Nobbes is apx 22 inches tall not including his 10 inch tail. The perfect size to go on "imaginary" adventures with you!

His body is made of snuggly Orange and White Fleece, with a bit of Black Fleece for the ears and end of tail. His stripes, eyes and nose are made of soft, Black synthetic Felt which are **completely hand stitched** onto his body. Extreme care was taken to line up those stripes just right.

Once he's gone, he's gone, no custom requests will be taken on this plush. More info & pics here <--click link.

I've been working on lots of flowers this week. These won't be making it to my shop, they're all commissioned/gifted pieces.

I only meant to make one Dahlia but wound up with two thanks to a small measurement mishap. It thankfully didn't ruin the first one but it did make it too big for my project so I had to put it aside temporarily. Here's the proper sized, first completed (second started) Dahlia in action:

Can you believe 40 petals on that flower? All hand cut and rolled by your truly.

The box is a repurposed (4) mug box so it's nice and sturdy. I left the bottom alone with it's polkadotted paper but painted and then recovered the lid in Beige Linen. To break up the Beige-ness on the lid, and have something to attach the Dahlia Pin to, I added an Ivory Satin Ribbon down the center. It's not shown in this photo but I'll be lining the box with purple tissue paper. I've also folded wax paper divider boxes because this box is soon to be full of tea and homemade cookies! Nom.

I don't have a pic of the other Dahlia finished yet but there is one of it 2/3 complete with Tiger Buddy plus another pic of the Roses I'm working on on my Facebook page.

What a distracting month it's been! Anywho, a couple of previous styles have been relisted but here are the new styles of reversible headbands for this month. Loving the turquoise fabric! If you didn't notice ;)

Headbands7

Top L: Tumbling Cats - Purple & Turquoise, R: Spiderwebs Over Water
Bottom L: Mirage Oasis, R: Chinese Flowers

As always custom requests on the headbands are welcome if you see two fabric I have that you would like together.

All right back to work for me, I've still got a lot of hand stitching of Hobbes-like stripes to finish(?) today. There's a progress photo of this on my FB page here.

The answer is the cats are out to get me. No, really, they are! *Looks around nervously* Whew, they're sleeping. For now.

Since I'm awake I thought I'd show you a couple things from my perspective. First thing in the morning...

That cup is full of delicious manna (coffee). Notice how nothing can be focused on until that nectar of the gods has been consumed? Powerful stuff. The tilt of the photo is due to my face being strongly attracted to the table top. The attractions wears off after awhile so no cause for alarm.

After a few sips of manna I was able to take a few more snaps. Here's the amazingly bright turquoise fabric I mentioned on FB along with some combos I'm probably going to go with for headbands (top matching to bottom).

You like?

And, last but not least, a pulled back view of what my kitchen table looks like when no one can hear me scream...

See that? Poor Hobbes won't even look.

Well, I'm off for more manna and then hopefully I'll work on my Tiger Buddy there for a bit -- I can only work on him a little at time for fear of hand cramps-- and then stitch up those headbands as a breather from His Stripeyness.

The awesome artist/writer lurking behind the e-shop Somnambulant and the Oh Honestly, Erin blog asked if I could make her a Jonny Craig chibi doll.

Now, if you're a reader of Oh Honestly, Erin you know how much her babydaddy, Henry, loathes all mention of Jonny Craig. Who would pass up a chance to help further the annoyance of Henry and create a plush of the soulless ginger crooner? Not I, challenge accepted!

So it begins...

  
Oooh, he's nekkid! Good thing he's a smoothie. The doll, not the person. Well, I don't personally know about the person so let's just roll with the assumption that he does in fact have genitals. Moving on!


Finally got some pants on the guy!


The face has a dermal implant under one eye -- I literally made a dermal for the doll out of a flathead straight pin which announced it disapproval of being bent all to hell by stabbing me repeatedly until I wizened up enough to cut the pointy part off. Genius, I tell ya.
There's a teardrop and heart (embroidered) tattoo under the other eye. To give you an idea of scale, the teardrop is just under a 1/4" in height. Tiny!

And, finally, what you've been waiting for with bated breath...

The finished chibi Jonny Craig doll! (You thought I was going to make you wait, didn't you?) He's happy to finally have his clothes on and head attached. Now he's just chillin' waiting for his lady to take him home.

Wow, just... wow. I received Chester from DARK Alley on Friday and he is amazing! I still can't believe I won this fantastic art doll in her recent Easter giveaway and he's right here in my hands. This is one clown I can handle (it's those creepy B&B type ones I don't like and, yes, those are creepy).

Chester looks rather mischievous and I'm quite sure he'll sneak up on a visitor or two with a tap on the shoulder and a quiet "Boo". He's currently high up on our entertainment center where everyone can see him, but our kitties can't get to him, whispering with my Zombigurumi. I'm sure he'll be taunting the kitties in no time.

Thanks again to Veronika Lozovaya, creator of DARK Alley art dolls, for this amazing gift!
