I was poking around my sewing table today when it dawned on me that I haven't actually sewn anything in a really long time. I believe my last sewing related post here involved a pair of trousers that I made a year ago. The next intended article of clothing was the tailcoat for that Regency costume, but, since I am no tailoring prodigy, that coat now lies in a crumpled heap on my sewing table...poor thing. (You can see the purple lining in the background of the photo.) I'm quite dedicated to crochet right now, so I doubt I'll be fixing that coat any time soon, but maybe I'll come back to it in the future. Hopefully I'll have some sewing/tailoring classes under my belt if I do.

I love any and all Legend of Zelda games, including the fabulous Wind
Waker. I remember being particularly enamored with the great fairies
after I first played the game, and it turns out they make for a fun
crochet pattern. The sparkly white yarn I used for this doesn't show
well in the photo, but it looks great in person!
Here are two finger puppets I made for some friends. One is the Very Hungry Caterpillar and the other is Michelangelo from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. These were so much fun to make! I'll have to get started on Donnie, Leo, and Raph soon.
I've been fawning over episodes of Agatha Christie's Poirot recently, which led to Google searches of the cast, which led to a lovely photo of Pauline Moran as the stalwart Miss Lemon. The sketch was fast and simple, so I added a background and some color to spruce it up. I think she turned out quite fetching.
Due to the large amount of green yarn I bought for my Kermit doll, I've been looking for other green things to make. I found two great patterns: a brain slug from Futurama, and a stegosaurus. Nothing says Happy Holidays like an alien parasite and a dinosaur!
