Every time I update it’s bad news

…and this may seem like more of the same, I know. At least I have a small amount of work to show for it?

Despite having yet more hospital trips this year, my doctors claim they have sorted out my problems and so far (knock wood), I’ve been feeling a bit better. Hopefully this will improve and I’ll finally have a healthy year next year.

Two projects I completed a while ago, but only now have gotten to post about (and will mail out shortly): another Metroid plushie and a Lavos plushie!

Lavos, the Destroyer of Worlds from Chrono Trigger!

Hopefully I’ll have more and better things to write about soon. I’d truly prefer to have happy posts filling up these pages again.

Marathon over!

Thank you to everyone who came to watch Speed Demos Archive‘s Japan Relief Done Quick and raised money for Doctors Without Borders! At the end of the marathon, we raised $22,718.92! That’s certainly a lot of money to help all those in Japan needing medical help after the horrible earthquakes and tsunami. We couldn’t have done it without all of you.

Even metroids like raising money for charity! (And draining life energy.)

My plushies seemed to be a hit, and I couldn’t be more pleased. It makes me feel wonderful to give my time as well as my money to a great cause. The final two plushies I made were a Metroid (see above; Ravelry page here) and a surprise, last-minute Ocarina of Time (Ravelry page here).

Note: does not make sounds like a real ocarina. ;)

More plushies, hats, and other goods are always on the way.
