Funky Turtle

This funky turtle is handmade in felt and fabric.
It's a present for a friend's birthday, I think she liked it :)

Fortunately I've completely recovered from the flu & stomach virus.
Too bad the weather's been moody lately but then again it IS April and as the saying goes "April showers bring May flowers".
Yesterday my fiance started planting in our future vegetable garden.
Today I planted Morning Glory (pink & blue), Alyssum, Forget-me-not, Columbine & Marigold seeds. Here's hoping some of them sprout!

Two weeks left to the end of the school semester.
Unfortunately the summer semester starts right after which means no respite and last night I was told summer semester is usually crammed with homework, sigh.
I hope I survive it and still be able to enjoy Summer!

Musical Sunny Kitty

Ginger is wearing a dress I made using a pattern found at
She's holding a felt bag made by me.

Long time no see!
As mentioned previously, I was busy making Easter/Spring treats for my fiance's family while working on homework and battling against a bad flu accompanied by stomach virus.
Not one of my best months but at least I managed to survive it in spite of some personal issues.

Two changes I want to mention are:
1) my Etsy Shop is no more- I decided to close it for lack of sells. I realized there are way too many crafters attempting to sell their merchandise and rather than try to compete with them I'll just proceed at my own pace. If you're interested in something, please feel free to contact me;
2) you will not be reading or seeing anything to do with RainbowProject anymore- we've had a bad falling out due to her lack of consistency. My being physically sick + fed up with her prevented me from continuing to be patiently diplomatic.

To be honest, I get lonely when I'm home alone and am on the pc most of the time (crafting or homework) but I'm tired of these crazies... 3 out of 3... I'm giving up on finding someone sane to relate to online.
Why is it so hard to find "sanity" online?

At least I was lucky to find my fiance' thanks to the Internet...

Froggie servant?

Sgt. Frog
I was inspired by the main character in the wacky anime "Sgt. Frog".
This felt plush has velcro on his hands so he can hang on to things, like the vacuum!

I wanted to reassure my readers I'm still alive here in NC.
The reason I haven't posted anything new is because... I haven't really made anything new except this frog & a dress for my new bjd.

This month I'll be mainly busy making Easter treats for Family.
Since my fiance's mother plans to visit us to meet my mom who'll be staying with us a week in May, I wanted to give her some plushes to take back to the rest of the family so I'll be making a couple of Kirby plushes (apparently a favourite game character in my fiance's family) and a couple of birdies.

I already prepared a cute Easter basket with a chick and bunny (with some chocolates) for my fiance's adopted mother and will do the same for his real one.
All this while I continue with my online college classes & improving the house- talk about busy, phew!

In case I run out of time, I'll wish you all an early HAPPY EASTER!
Please make sure to enjoy Spring in all its glorious beauty!
