no ahsoka my phone gave up

I spent the day trying to see if I could see anything obvious, but tiny screws with tiny tools do not play nicely with hands. So I am sore, working with an even older phone (I can’t update it even) and trying to determine what phone to try and get given it’s the time of …

final ahsoka attempt

I’ve had to put a limit on this, and today my not be the ideal day- weird inflammation along top of radius- but I do need to put a pin in this! So I have some nice weight card to work with and will set up my netbook with some media and just start and …

nerve test done

It was definitely not fun. Mainly because the tendons in my palm are so tight. I do now have a frame of reference for a really weird thing. My right little toe occasionally feels like it is being jolted with electricity. And using the test, it’s about the same level as the 23.3 near the …

I’ve had my first infusion, not feeling terribly great but that’s because it is doing what it is supposed to. So I feel flu-y. Time for some more paracetamol and a rest. So I can’t really use too many “spoons” outside of healing. Tomorrow I’ll rehem Elsa (horsehair braid really does help the hem kick …

Ahsoka tunic progress

Instagram importer isn’t working all the time, so I’m trying to backtrack a bit. I’ve been doing slow work on hilts and montral. The hilts will likely end up with a layer of rub nbuff as I can’t get my pigments to work with my air brush. But the tunic and mitts are going well. …

catch up with projects

My RA is relapsing and it’s a bit difficult getting in front of it. It also means I need to focus on one project or another and it’s a bit frustrating as I’ve had back luck with both! Anyway. Ahsoka’s hilts are ready for final smoothing and welding (acetone, all the acetone!) Ahsoka’s boots are …

Spent the day making pleats and sewing pleats. Also got my stays cut and mostly assembled. I still need twill tape for the boning. This is over my smaller hoops for the Robe de Style and Reinette. Still needs some careful shaping.

marie antoinette progress

Well semi progress! I have the petticoat cut and partially sewn, even braved using a hemming foot! But I have run out of thread. But I do have a nice amount of cotton sateen, slightly heavy, to line my bodice with which is a huge relief! I need to wash it to soften but it’s …
