Bird Brained.


I need to stop with the birds. While this week was draining enough I didn't get to make anything, I did come with the idea of a Loftwing clip or two, and went ahead and bought the material I needed for it, regardless if it actually works out in real life as oppose to just the sketch I made.

Meanwhile, while the freshly handwashed fabric happily spins in the drier (and my hands warm up from the freezing water bath) I shall gather my thoughts and make MOAR OF ALL THE THINGS!

That, and I have frames to paint.

I think I have a slight obsession making bird fascinators now.

My chocobos have been joined by a hawk and a peacock. I have no idea whether or not any of these are going to sell, but I can't stop. Birds for all my customers!

At this rate, I shall make 151 different versions of them, and collecting all of them will unlock a SUPER fascinator that can casts Lit-3! (No.)

... I really should switch to cuffs now, but I just want to go back to Sussman's and buy more feathers.

Even more fascinators!

Okay, so I might have everything I need to create a Golden Chocobo fascinator. If I'm lucky, maybe even two, but if it turns out the way I've planned in my head, it will be darling.

Two Muskoka bases are complete and drying, I just need the headbands to finish them up.

That means, two more to make up after that, and maybe a few more smaller clips, before I move into cuff country.

Simply fascinating.

Whelp, I made some fascinators.

Or rather I made 1 entire fascinator, and finished the other 3 that I had started like two weeks ago, but couldn't finish until I bought the missing pieces. Fortunately, my Queen St run yesterday proved to be pretty successful, and therefore allowing me to finish the aforementioned pieces.

That completes the plan Chocobo Set - 8 in total, though I do have supplies left for more.
A red and black fascinator joins its blue and black sibling.
A random yellow and black hairclip kinda formed out of nowhere and is quite lovely.
A hair flower also crashed the party.

I still have Muskoka's to make and other fascinators to do, and I think I'll exhaust myself on those before I enter back into cuff country.

I am very pleased how under budget I currently am, and I hope it stays this way.

Calm is the mind.

I'm currently in the state of mind of:

"Balance the quantities of supplies required for multiple projects at all the same time, so your Queen St run will be maximized, but minimized in frequency and financially"

As such, I am trying to hold the designs of multiple fascinators, cuffs and other half formed projects in mind, while tearing apart m boxes of supplies to make sure I don't over or under buy, in the brief moment I have between jobs.

That sweet, sweet melt of molten glue.

It's the smell of success, you know.

...or just the smell of a hot glue working overtime, which can lead to the same thing.

2 black chocobo and/or raven fascinators finished. They're cute in black.

1 Earth tone fascinator also complete.

Tentative idea for a black lace bracelet or two

All and all, a good start. Time to do a little more.
