Dogs Named Laika

I started a flickr group recently for Dogs Named Laika...
Laika eats her feet
You've all seen my ridiculous beast.
So if you know any Laikas... send 'em my way!

Beatrix's New Dress

Beatrix needed a dress to wear that isn't a wedding dress...
Beatrix's New Dress
I decided to go with grey/silver tones because I thought they would go with her coloring really well... I just used scraps of fabric and ribbon I had around.
I'm working on a dress for my Blythe right now... it's candy themed! Of course, you say, if you've ever met me. By the by, I named her Lemon Drop. Perfection, no? Here is a lovely pic of her by the ever talented Doug.

And here is everyone:
I'll have pics of the Mini Pullip & Petite Blythes soon...

I haven't finished a painting since graduating... until now! Yaaaaaay! I have been so engrossed with new hobbies and burnt out on 2D that I just couldn't get anything done, but now I have a new (well, old and re-gessoed) stack of canvases waiting to break the curse. Although I did start a quilt and make some doll dresses last week while staring at said canvases. Wish me luck.

Slouchy Pirates (now with more eyepatch!)

My first fair isle!
I added an eyepatch to the middle row of skulls a la vikingmaid on Ravelry.
Sooooo… I had gauge, but I didn’t do a swatch to wash. I know, I know. It grew quite a bit after washing, but I think it looks pretty darn cute slouchy. I’ll just have to check if Tasha likes it that way (it was a request).
