At long last!

Took me a while to update this, but I didn't want to ruin the surprise, since I'm horrible at keeping presents a complete secret (I love to see the look on people's faces when they're happy) XD My latest ami was a large (12" tall) tiger! He was made especially for my fiancee, as a good-luck friend for his first day at a new job just a few days ago.
The guy suprised him by hiding in his car, the little devil. Fiancee was pleased though! Good reports.
Oh I had fun making him, over a period of two weeks on and off an hour or so each night. I sewed on the stripes on the back, tail and legs, however when I got to the head... I was tired of sewing :(

His pendant says "Best Friends". It's one I've been saving for the right ami, I think he was it :3
He's got jointed arms and legs which, after many MANY attempts and re-dos, finally are the way I'd like! They're still a bit more floppy than preferred, but they do their job.

All in all, I like the way he came out. His face-fur is fun, too, so fluffy! It's a technique I heard about from a couple of different sources and decided to try, with awesome results.
The other thing I wanted to talk about was the new Star Trek movie that just came out.
I went to go see it tonight and I cannot CONTAIN my joy at the AWESOMENESS! I won't spoil it for anyone, heaven forbid, but aside from the one "wtf" it is truly an epic movie. There's just no other way to describe it. Even if you're not a trek-fan, I sincerely urge you to go, it's that great. And if you ARE a trekkie, like myself, then you will enjoy it immensely! Overall, they did a FANTASTIC job.

My new query for myself is, what to work on next. Other than the things I HAVE to get done (which are many), I'm thinking of revisiting a dragon design I was working on, which if it turns out I may turn into a pattern. It's just a small dragon but it's cute and easy to make, a nice friend.

That's it for me, gotta take the sis to school so must nap aforehand. Peace!
