It's a three-fer kind of blog

I'm coasting, to the point of floundering, right now. Theater and family are overwhelming me right now; my husband is connected to both, which isn't helping my mood or my creative mojo.

Our conversations the last couple of days have been full of manipulations, demands, anger, and - the possibility of a split. We've reached a wary agreement for the short term; it's not ideal, but should get us through my crazy February schedule. I hope.

This is part of the reason I haven't posted for a few days; too much emotional drama and bad energy. But goals must still be met, so I put on my big-girl panties and got back to it.

My oldest had a sewing project she needed some help with, so we spent Sunday afternoon working on a cybermat creature. She got the pattern from somebody on tumblr. This was sandwiched between some serious discussions between the hubs and me; I wasn't in the mood to work on anything of my own. It made for a nice break.
I don't know what it is, either

So, after all the drama on Sunday, all I could manage was a pair of earrings. They were so pretty, I made a second pair on Monday.

ooh, sparkly!

a disk, a post, a jump ring, and some crystals
Finally, on Tuesday evening, I worked on a t-shirt design for "Slasher".  It's an iron-on decal, so I had to get the size and rotation ready to print onto transfer paper. It needs to be a mirror image on the transfer paper, to read correctly once it's on the t-shirt.

otherwise known as "Busters"

Peace out.


  1. That's a Cybermat (in soft toy form) from Doctor Who!

    1. Rachel is big into Doctor Who! She didn't really explain to me what it was, she just printed the instructions and we made it. I need to credit the website from where she got the pattern.

  2. I have an old-school Doctor Who Craft book if you ever want to borrow it. Lots of delightful things in it!

    1. That would be great! If nothing else, Rachel and Connor would want to look at it. They've been watching a lot of the older Doctor Whos. Thanks!

  3. I'll figure out a way to get it to you. If nothing else, let me know when you are doing a tour next, and I can run it to the caves.
