Greyscarf keeping E the Pony company though a long workday. He’s a cutie~
Greyscarf keeping me company during a break from an exhausting day of sewing; by Bakki.
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.
I need to work on my sales pitch some more. I’m not a very good salespony sadly.

Holiday Poni commission for Ethepony on DeviantART

Yay, I gotta present!~
Usually when I make embroidery designs, I end up fixing minor errors or such in the screenshots I use as a base. This was the opposite, where I had to make it look bad on purpose so I could match the MS-Paint look. This was way harder than it should have been, but now I have a koozie for my Guinness with my boyfriend on it. Totally worth it.
My current preparations for Las Pegasus Unicon, 4”, 5”, 6” and 7” patches. I am trying to make enough so I don’t run out. For reference, there are 77 four inch Rainbow dash cutie marks in this pic and 11 7” tall ones. Is your favorite in here?
