I'm still here!

Wow, finals hit me hard this quarter. At least I only have to go through that once more (unless I go to grad school.. Let's not think about that right now). I have been crafting, though, especially in the past few days.

As mentioned before, a friend asked me to help her design some crazy little dinosaurs. She actually came up to my apartment a few weeks ago and we set out figuring out the pattern and seeing what we could do. The first few, I'm sorry to say, turned out horribly, but by the end of the journey, she created a few really adorable little guys. My favorite is the "emo dinosaur", complete with black eyeliner and floppy hair.

This week, I made another Warcraft plushie, based off of a ghoul, as requested by a close friend. I'll put pictures of the fellow up here once she receives her package, since I don't want to spoil the surprise, but I was very pleased. He's quite possibly the cutest zombie ever. I'm planning on making another for myself.

Today, I started working on the twin zodiac pillow my friend requested for her birthday, to match her roommate's. It's looking pretty nice so far, since I have the experience of the first pillow under my belt and I know how to avoid some of the pitfalls that occurred before.

If I have time, I'm going to try to make that dino quilt on Monday. It doesn't seem very hard, as I was reading the directions earlier, although I don't have a "pressing cloth," as is requested. I figure I can just iron the seams like normal. I hope?
