So, how are all your New Years Resolutions holding up?
Mine is in a 'So Far So Good' kind of place at the moment! I have managed to find time for a little creativity....& it feels good!!!
Firstly, you may remember this POST about Alex & his interest in all things pony.
Well, after all these months he's still a Brony & about a year ago I made him a small pony in the style of his online pony avatar Robinmane...
As he is a Pegasus pony I had to add wings, which were the most challenging part!!
But, Robinmane is still much loved & has been everywhere with Alex....small enough to be tucked into his backpack & brought out for 'selfies' in various venues!!
So, Alex now has an online girlfriend who is also into ponies & he asked me to make another plush for her, as her avatar Golddrop.
After much procrastination, this was the perfect project to kick off my New Years Resolution...& here she is...
This time, instead of felt, I used a short pile plush fabric, which was messier but softer!
I worked from the image of Golddrop Alex provided me with for eye & hair colour....& of course the all important cutie mark on the rump!!
I also included a headshot of Robinmane in the heart locket on that pearl choker!!
I have stuffed the legs with lentils to give added weight, which makes the plush more stable when standing.
Oh & she's a unicorn so that's why she has a horn poking through that fringe!!
So, a belated Christmas present which also gave me the motivation to get creative in 2015!!
I also headed off to my first crop in 18 months on Saturday....where does the time go?!!!
There was a small flurry of snow as I
headed off to Renhold for the Merly
Impressions bi-monthly crop & it was
But there was a very warm welcome
waiting & it was so lovely to meet up
with some scrappy friends again!
I couldn't have chosen a better place to sit that where Chrissy had put me...
right in the middle of a table of familiar faces....
The lovely Denise & the delightful duo
Dawn & Sharon!!
Hugs all round & a
lengthy catch up followed...& yes,
some actual crafting did get done but
no, I didn't actually complete either of
the class layouts!!
But I will...& I'll share my take on
them when I do.
Here is what the class layouts looked like....
