Hi, Crafters.. I’m busy with working, working on bills and doing my side jobs, such as book reviewing. I ordered too many books to review and that has been disaster, but I’m weening down slowly. Down to 5 now, working on the load. What a mistake!!! But I’ll survive, I think.
For those that missed it, last week, although I was sick, I decided to stream on Twitch for a while to show off my progress on my commission project- blue yoshi. I have gained 3 out of 10 followers. My goal is 10 at this point, but I decided to stop streaming temporarily because of distractions and also I hate my camera angles. I need to work on that. I’m hoping the stream can also show off some great products I use or other beauty techniques in the near future. I may even start streaming on YouTube (if I have enough devices to run it all. lol) Yeah, big ideas.
My blue yoshi is complete:

Here he is my custom yoshi for @artby_brierose He's blue. 🙂 and I hand sew the eyes. He takes several hours to make. I'm so excited to ship him off. Finishing some paper work today so he can get him to his new owner. I will miss him. I grew attached… oops!! #yoshi #yoshiwoolyworld #craftygabi #craftyintheberkshires #amigurumidoll #amigurumiberkshires #shopcraftygabis #shopsmall
This week I’m working on another commission project. This one may take some more time; it’s a bullet bill. I’m working with a pattern that I found online through Ravelry and I do credit the creator. I just love Ravelry and I should post more of my projects on there, but the Bullet Bill is pretty big and I didn’t expect it to be. I guess I need to start creating my own patterns, but it is hard for me because mathematics has never exactly been a friend of mine. I’ve found a software to create patterns, but my down fall has been I forgot how to read the symbols. OH NO!!! :-O I’m not sure what to do about that, except go back and study that lesson I watched so many moons ago. If I can find the time. 😀
Here’s a peak from Instagram of the progress of the project. Working on part two today. 120 more stitches. AHHHH!!
Anyway, don’t forget to follow me on wordpress via email or the follow button down below. 🙂 I appreciate the follows and any donations you give to support my endeavors, although you aren’t obligated. 🙂 Remember if you see me on stream feel free to leave me a whisper or contact me here for commission products or any ideas you’d love to share. 🙂
I hope you enjoy my updates and I’ll see you again soon.
