These are quite possibly the glitziest felt applique ornaments ever.
This weekend I'll get to start putting Hallowe'en costumes together, but in the meantime, I think I'll just read.

And nothing shows. Well the break did. It was quite impressive to be fair. It’s also the rib above the one that hurts. So I broke the last false rib and it’s the free end of the first floating riib that hurts. The break is very close the the end of the 11th rib so maybe that’s why it hurts? It could be tiny ligament? But it feels like there are nerves at the end that are pressure sensitive.
That’s not showing up though.
So at least I know it’s the floating rib so it in theory can’t really do much, it’s kind of reliant on the costal muscles- and I know they need stretching so… hopefully that’s it.
What is a bit of a worry is my carpal tunnel feels like it has started up again. I did wrangle with some blue swimmer crab, and also with some fused fabric. So there is that. Also pressed my Elsa cape flurry and snowflakes.
It’s now a couple of hours later- and I have regained a lot of flex 🙂 It’s no lie that flinching over my rib has caused muscles to seize all the way to my feet. But I can sit in second position again and rest my chest along my legs, and I can lean on my elbows level with my feet. I used to nearly get my chest to the floor but for only a week, if that, yes- a lot of power in regular stretching, pain relief when needed to do my strength building.
My Take A Breather costume- A remake of my Jem dress 🙂 The belt and shoes were still fine but I also have a glorious new wig. So it needs a really glam dress.
And Ahsoka belt and bracers. I now have the belt wet forming on a dressform.
The horns separated in temperature change, the plastic went up and the clay went down. This necessitated getting the horns able to be worked on more easily and able to be tidied away.
Take the seat off a stool and replace it with the sculpting surface. Perfect height for sitting at 🙂
My back lekku is a little short and the front sit too close so I also had to change how I worked with her.
So I put my old head cast on a dress form. Her neck is so short because I was aligning bust and chin. My shoulders sit much lower and my neck is rather long. This may help exlpain how much work I need to do on patterns to fit them! And why dress forms are rarely helpful.
This is a waratah. It is not supposed to be a standard (long skinny trunk and ball shaped top.) But that is what we have. Also the bottle brush at the back is not a single tree but is doing what the waratah was supposed to.
Finally some of the ducks are back. This one taps on my door for food. And then goes to the other end of the drive to the house to ask for more.
