My Mr Boo tribute fits in really nicely. He will need to be unpicked to put the embroidered body in place but I really wanted to test the shapes and embossing depth and get used to it first 🙂 he will have a little fat belly. He’ll have his ears and nose partly etched so his heart nose is really


But the rest of the leaves and pearls have been stitched down too 🙂

The front piece will need leaves to have holes stamped out of the end. So not doing that past 9pm as it is now though!

Squee! 2nd night in a row, may just have a new mollusc pet? It doesn’t eat much, just some catfood crumbs.
Squee, it’s turning to face the catbiscuits now 🙂
And in case anyone wondered, Mr Boo is currently in favour of my Elissa net underskirt as being his new crunchy bed.

He also loves the pain relief. What can’t every other pill work the same way?

Rush makeup that is way too flat. But hey!


Also I am about to puddle because Mr Boo Boo does indeed have cancer and I am just glad they are “cosmetic” and pain “only” so I have had a wine on not enough food because I have a sad. Not as much as he has- he wants outside so badly. But he also has a toe injury so he is Not Allowed Out!


But the cheeks do what they need, I’m just going to use very little to no pigments. The deadener also works. The nose prosthetic has a gant bubble in it so no it won’t work as a stunt piece but for demonstration purposes it’s great!

Also, I love the self adhesive properties (will try for 300% not 100% next time) and I can’t wait to get Madame VASTRA done!!!!!!

baby mordin and mr boo

That’d be my Mr Boo.  Boo the hamster is hiding in the black hoodie pocket just visible as a shadow on the left. This is not the same day as the last photo. This is now his Spot.

It may be cold and I may have used trickery. Well more like…. Here, this empty onesie is just like your fluffy, see, soft and fluffy and warm….

Oh the onesie has something in it now that it smells of you? Oh does it? I had no idea. 

So this is now a thing and I may not be able to take behbeh krogan with me. But I do want to make her some appropriate baby krogan gear. But my headcanon is that Wrex and Bakara would indulge Shep in this need to share pink fluffies on occasion..  Mutual admiration and such.

My headcanon also has Mykka Shep attempting to knit and it being about as good as I can knit. Except I can’t at all due to the specific deformations caused by my arthritis. But it would look like that. Uneven tension and skipped stitches.

Because I really can’t knit.

Like really.

Okay I managed enough for a Girl Guide project. I may take some photos because I even had a tiny teddy pattern at the time. I was 11.

Saya progress

Just the Saya at the moment. So guess who busted out her linen thread, beeswax and silver bullion trim of epic weight?

80 minutes for just one row. It’s not too bad but I can’t do more than that once every two days or so.

And finally because he demands his own blog:
I am surprised this was not already taken. I was tempted to go for mrfluffbutt but that was a little mean.
