New customs added to the gallery.

First: Noctaeterna the dark pony.

She's for sale on eBay. Click here for the eBay auction. This one's probably going to be the last one before the holidays. She's been sitting on my shelf, hairless, for a long time. I finally got around to re-rooting her ^_^

Next: The Postal Pony. Not endorsed by the USPS, but she was commissioned as a gift for a real-life letter carrier! The accessories are all made by ME. ^_^

Almost done with Lobeira. Curling the hair was a real pain. Pics will likely be posted tomorrow night.

On the knitting front, I've finished the Holiday Bag for my mom.
It looks pretty good, but the design is strange. I knit a little handle & stitched it in place with a little excess yarn. It also has a drawstring with a copper bell & fuzzy pompom at the end of each side.

The stuff inside is soap & lotion from Bath and Body Works ^_^

HOW COOL!

I ADORE her eyes! And the Postal Pony is so cute! ^__^

I know yer very busy, but I was wondering if your skills are good enough (and it certainly looks like!) to repair a sweater of mine that looks like it's made from the same type of yarn as that bag, just in a different shade. I'd be willing to pay, and I can provide you pics. It's a slight hole and some thinning in the back area. I adore it, and can't think of anyone else who may be able to repair it. As I said, I know you're busy and all, so I'm not asking for you to drop everything. I was just wondering if you'd be willing. ^__^ My apologies.

sweaters

I'm honored that you would ask me to repair your treasured sweater. Hmmm...I've never repaired a sweater before. Honestly, I can't say unless I actually see it.

*looks at Nocteaterna* *WHIMPERS!* You place such temptation before me...continually...*ponders* *watches auction closely* We'll see how rich I'm feeling when it ends...

The postal pony is seven shades of CUUUUUUUUTE! I adore the accessories! You do such a good job at that. ^_^

And the bag came out great! I love it! I've told a few people at work about it (blame corporate. We're supposed to "give suggestions" to all of our guests AS they come through the checkout line), so you may yet become a trend setter. ^_~;; (No, I haven't pointed them to your live journal. Breathe easy)

Awww...thanks. ^_^
I really like the fuzzy top on the bag. I'm thinking of adding a fuzzy top to another handbag that I have. Mmmmmm...fuzziness!

The fuzziness is a REALLY good accent to the rest of the bag. *nods*

They're so cute!! I love Noctaeterna's colors, symbol, and eyelashes. Then the postal pony is just the cutest thing! The symbol is so nice. You're so lucky to be able to do suck fine detail with your symbols. I love that little hat too. n.n *waits patiently for update of Lobeira*

The handbag is adorable! I love the fuzzy trim and the pom poms especially. ^^ I think she'll love it. I admire people who can knit. They have such patience and creativity. I think I would end up breaking the needles if I tried. oO;;; lol I say that cause I did when I tried to crochet. ^^;;;;

Thanks for the comments! ^_^ It was a tough decision to place Noctaeterna on the Bay, but I have waaaaaaaay too many ponies. The details are mostly just from practice.

I use metal needles to knit with. It would be extremely tough to break them, LOL! I think knitting is easier than crocheting, but people have told me otherwise. Give it a try! ^_^

Yeah I know that thing about too many ponies. >>;;; *looks at own collection as they over take the room* but I'm sure she'll find a good home. ^^

and I might just give it a try then. Just have to get my aunt to teach me. ^^v maybe I can finally get her to teach me how to sew. . . >>;; *tries to get super glue off hands*

Very carefully. ^_^ Really tiny brushes & a lot of practice. *squints*
