My Mr Boo tribute fits in really nicely. He will need to be unpicked to put the embroidered body in place but I really wanted to test the shapes and embossing depth and get used to it first ๐Ÿ™‚ he will have a little fat belly. He’ll have his ears and nose partly etched so his heart nose is really


obvious.



But the rest of the leaves and pearls have been stitched down too ๐Ÿ™‚



The front piece will need leaves to have holes stamped out of the end. So not doing that past 9pm as it is now though!

Yeah, well I tried by machine. It was actually much harder and the result was just not okay. I either had really obvious stitches or had to break out my craft blade to unpick very carefully.


The light heat n bond is kind of perfect though. It is too light to work on its own but works really well to stabilise the brocade. It both retains the curve I managed to pressed it into as well as stick to the silk. But the fabric is much too heavy, so it absorbs the stuff!



Also if anyone has been watching my instagram they’ll have seen the progress of the centrepiece of my stickelchen. My Boo, he is made from embossed copper with silver leaf so is quite fragile. I was going to make his body from pearls but I think I may want to preserve the feeling of softness by either embroidery or more embossing. I have silver thread but nothing to couch.



And yes, I still need to tidy the couched braid as it is a bit wobbly from stretching.

The last two nights I have cried myself out of sleep.I don’t cry tears except a very few times. When I thought I’d love my mother, when I am struggling after months of untreated disease and for my Boo.


There is a unique connection when both you and your pet have disabilities. You become reliant on each other,ย are vulnerable with each other, and trust each other.



 




Feb 5 is coming up fast and it’s just harder to be okay at specific times of the day.
