little bear

Ok so finally I am posting some photos of the panda I made for back-tack III.

The five required buttons are as follows... two for eyes, two for leg string joints, and one as a necklace. The intial of my sendee is there, you just can't see it here. I was going to make clothes for this little bear but I honestly just ran out of time. Panda does have a quilt though so I don't feel too bad about the nekkidness.

Here is a pic with matching quilt, I am pretty happy with how it turned out and I have to say that back-tack is about as fun as swaps get. If you have never given it a try I highly recommend giving it a go next year!

lucky bunny

I've been wanting to post photos of the lovely bunny sent to me by Oscarcat since I recieved many days ago...sadly spring has decided to hide behind many layers of cloud cover here in Portland. I have been forced to take photos under less than ideal conditions, but they turned out ok so without furthur ado here is my back tack bunny thank you Katie!

Teaser

pandateaser


Well it would appear that I have been an extremely lax blogger lately. What can I say life has been a little crazy lately. I am wrapping up a large mural commission that has taken consiberably longer than I first estimated, house hunting has reached a desperate frenzied pitch, and I am trying to start a business.

Yes yes I know these all could have been opportunities for new blog entries but I just haven't had it in me. Also part of my business is that I will have a new shiny pretty blog on my new website (read not a blogger blog), I will no longer be tied to the irrational whims of technical blogger difficulties! So this has caused me to become more dissatisfied with this blog's aesthetics.

Anyhow I have finished my back-tack softie and I think it turned out pretty well. Full shots will be posted once the little dear has landed in New York city until then you will have to content yourself with this teaser shot.

I recieved my softie from Oscarcat and it is quite wonderful! I will post photos and full details tomorrow when I have some natural light.
