yesterday i took my little guy to the vet after starting to worry about his excessive drinking and then puking. they did blood work on him, and my vet called me this morning to let me know everything seemed fine. the only number that worried her was the one related to his kidneys. i guess because he is an older gentleman, his kidneys are no longer working as well as they are suppose to. i just got back from picking up some samples of special foods for his kidneys. he has always been a dry food lover, but i need to try & get him to eat the wet stuff instead... right now he is curled up under the blanket napping the afternoon away, and i keep bugging him...so he is going to be fine.
this whole thing sort of took the wind out of my sails for the last day or so, though. i am going to be working really hard over the weekend to get more stuff made for the shop, which means green tea cups, regular tea cups, and finally the return of the sasquatches & yetis. so be sure to check in monday!
yesterday afternoon i finally got around making this fuzzy gorilla. it has been something rattling around in my brain for sometime now. i used one of those microplush blankets to make him out of. it was a messy affair, with much lint brushing involved, but i am happy with the results!
the weekend will mean i will get more stuff made, including those elephant kits i can't seem to keep in stock! so on monday check back to see them restocked again. have a great weekend all!
alrighty, so i tried another joann fabric store, and found more of the cotton fabrics, which means, more elephant kits! and i am ready if they run out again to make a few extras afterwards too...but they are currently now available in shop.WHOA! okay, so if you missed them today, please check back monday! i loaded up on material, so i should be able to make more over the weekend.
the elephant kits are also available! get them while they last... and happy monday!!
**edit: wow! those sold faster than i thought! i will see what i can do about making up some more this week...the cotton ear lining fabric might be different, though...for anyone who missed getting one, don't fret! i am on it! **
who blogs on a saturday?? i guess i do. well, i posted this mohair bunny, Yvonne, on bid4bears.com this morning. she was sitting around with her sister bunny not finished, so i decided to fix them both up and now they are up for sale.
here are the final versions of my hot beverage plush dolls. coming to a webshop of mine soon...
i was hoping for an update by this friday, but it might wind up being monday instead, so i can make some more stuff... i just got my re-order of stamps, so i will be adding more mr. bunny stamp sets to the shop too.
the mail has been good to me lately, i also got my new postcards for sample packs!
one more cup of joe for me, and i am off to get lots more done!
well, normally i wouldn't have done this, but since so many of you all asked, i am going to have a limited edition elephant kit available in the webshop by friday, in either pink or blue. it is limited because the fabric for lining the ears was in limited supply. here are some more images of them:
it seems my 'winter blahs' are over, and i have been kick started back into working like a crazy woman. maybe it was the daylight savings thing, who knows, but i have about a million ideas, and not enough time in a day to do them all!
