These days I do very little when it comes to specific pop culture pieces. It's really a bad habit (especially if I'm looking into freelancing again), but it happens. There are so many things that I enjoy that are very current but I'm hesitant to start working up pieces for them. Not really sure why, exactly. I will say this, though. Someday I will have a wall full of fabric Alfred Hitchcock movie posters (I suppose that's not current but it's extremely relevant hah).

With that said. I started this back in March before the Season 2 premier of Game of Thrones. It sat there in pieces for months. Literally almost complete, but in pieces. I keep thinking that I'm going to put something in to break up the space between the direwolf and text but it hasn't happened yet. Mountains? A patch of green meadow? I'll figure that out eventually but right now it's not really bothering me. It's stark, har har. Funny story though, just as I haven't completed the piece I still haven't gotten around to finishing the second season. I like it, but I need to be in a mood to watch. I'll take some weekend this fall and get completely immersed  again. Oh well.

So basically I now own a sigil. One that I made. I'm hoping it's not a gateway drug to LARPing. Not that there's anything wrong with that. Haha. Hopefully more new (new) pieces soon.

Business card makeover

I have a confession to make. I have boring business cards. Plain, boring business cards.

Nothing to write home about, right? I spent last night trying to come up with a new concept.  Drew some logos, scanned them in, played with my tablet and HATED everything that I was coming up with. In a desperate attempt to be productive, I took my old cards and doctored them up a bit. I think the end result is at least a little more interesting. If not interesting than at least a little more personal.

A little bit of stitching, a few bright buttons and they're a little more me. I still intend to come up with new cards (which will most likely feature the fabric peacock feathers), but these will do for now. For now I'm off to enjoy the gorgeous weather and listen to my neighbor practice (classical singing). Perhaps a wolf update soon? Maybe? It's almost done. But then again, it's been "almost done" for months. Until then,

It's been six months.

Six months of waiting and whining and putting things off. 

Six months of annoyances, distractions and procrastinating. And I promise I won't be gone this long again. Here's the elusive whale piece. I don't know why it took me so long to finish. It just kind of sat there, patiently waiting for the final stitches. I have more half completed projects that I'm working on. They'll be up as soon as I can get around to it.
