One of three commissioned stuffies... This lil' Godzilla is so charming and cute at 5 inches tall.

He's crochet from alpaca...

There are several other new items in my shop as well.
I've also been busy making critters to send to Duckon.

6. Plush and photo artist...
with a tendency to photograph adventures shared with plushies
(or is that 2 items)
5. I live in Milwaukee Wisconsin
4. I live in a little green house. (not a greenhouse. :D)
3. I have one daughter
2. I'm fannish!
1. I have a yen for Japanese art and design. (Pun intentional)
(actually, I'm sort of a push over for any Asian art/design...)

tag 7 people and link to their blogs... let them know they are tagged...
Ok this may have to wait a bit.

The Bowtie Party

This is actually from LAST Summer, the Tritt family had a small dinner party in their antique farmhouse, so Henry could offer a Tutorial on Bowties.

Hope it's useful!

A Busy Day in the City

Woke up feeling kinda tired, at 5am... bleh.
Around mid day my friend Henry called, "Would you like to go to Buffet City?"
It's a Chinese Buffet place near my home, and one of my favorites.
So I was taken to a lovely Chinese buffet lunch. Lots of yummy food.

I took my daughter to the DMV to renew her learner's permit... yes she's 21 now, but maybe now she'll actually get her license soon.
Since my hands were stiff and sore I didn't bring my crochet along to work on, but we had a nice chat while waiting and of course Mothra-bun had to get involved. The wait was about 30 minutes so it wasn't TOO awful.

Came home pooped, remember I was tired when I got up, so I went to take a nap.
Door bell rings and my daughter goes to the door for me... UPS had put a box in my screen door. I was surprised and happy, since I didn't expect the package till today or tomorrow. It was the TENS unit to help with the fibromyalgia pain. I tried it out, and wow! I can turn my head and raise my arms today! It's amazing.

amigurumi adventures

I had a busy week, I'm still posting photos to my flickr as I nearly 200 photos on a day trip with a couple of my amigurumi along.

The grey kitty hawk is Monty who was made for a friend of mine, and Mothra-bun seems to be my adventurous avitar/alter ego on these field trips. So I met up with the friend who was to become Monty's Mum, and we took her and her little girl on a day trip to Racine to see the zoo there, and to eat at Kewpie burger.

AND THEN, we went a bit further to Kenosha to ride the trolley and see their new museum.

I found that Mothra having adventures makes for a fun photo collection.
