Thought it would be cool to throw together a chart of where patches have been shipped in order from most recent to least recent. Mostly because I need a break from actual work at the moment. This is the last 3 months, with patches shipped to 24 countries.

These are the conventions I plan on attending in 2014 so far. I plan on bringing my embroidery machine to both to do live demonstrations and answer questions on embroidery and sewing. Hope to see you there!
Tables 407 & 508
What a surprise from Valley Violet. So much awesome. Just, wow. I can’t believe or explain just how great this is! Link: http://fav.me/d79ov02
I get questions every once and a while about what I am working on RIGHT NOW as in, this very instant. Now, you can stalk my embroidery machine, or at least know what I am working on at any given point by going here. I will keep it up to date with what is in my machine at this exact moment, show commission status, all that fun stuff.
This is as close as you can get to stalking me without receiving a restraining order.

When I was at BronyCon, I had some extra table space, so I gave it to Dusty from DustySculptures. A few weeks after I got back, I received this in the mail; the cutest scene of Greyscarf hugging an E plushie. Dusty does not paint his sculptures, he custom mixes clay into the needed colors; it really makes his sculptures have a great color depth to them that I can’t explain unless you see it in person.
It took a while to take good pictures of it because, despite being packed to survive a truck driving over it, it arrived in several pieces. I think Derpy dropped a piano on it while in transit. I reassembled it using his instructions, and it came out beautifully!

How to bring an embroidery machine to Bronycon, in 247 easy steps.
So yesterday, a note went out to the vendors going to Bronycon to tell them they couldn’t carry their own wares into the convention. Vendors had to hire local union labor to do it at somewhere around $30 per box (final price not known until tomorrow, estimated at 80 to 100 for 2 or 3 trips) from the car. Heavy items were more, especially if you needed a dolly or hand truck. You were not allowed to use your own hand truck, had to be theirs. But wheeled items like suitcases were okay to bring in.
Okay then, I like solving problems. I break out my welder to make a combination embroidery machine hauler slash embroidery machine stand. It will slot right into a regular 2” tow receiver that pretty much every truck has. Then, when I arrive at bronycon, I bolt on the legs, undo the hitch, and push it into the convention. Hey, it has it’s own wheels, no dolly needed!
The top is done including the strap down points for the trip. Now, I just need to build the legs, drill a hole for the hitch pin, paint it up and sew a protector out of water proof canvas or duck cloth for the journey from here to Bronycon.
Claudia isn’t too impressed with E’s sales pitch.
I need to work on my sales pitch some more. I’m not a very good salespony sadly.
(( omg dat face ))
I have found the upper bound of cute, and here it is. Greyscarf and an E plushie by hoikarnage. This was so very much worth the wait.
