I've decided to open up the old Etsy shop again. Before roller derby became like a part-time job, I used to sew a lot. I made all kinds of pins and such - out of felt. It was relaxing. All that intricate cutting and stitching. :) And while my shop currently consists of a definite overload of state pride, I wanted to get extra crafty and try something new. But my confidence falters, and perhaps I'm not cut out for this new hobby.
What do you think? The ring below was handpainted by me. I have a few ideas, but recently started re-watching the Doctor Who series again now that the 8th season has been released on Netflix. I was feeling a bit inspired and did a couple Daleks. One in blue, and this one in red. The lines aren't perfect, but the Dalek is so detailed, I kind of like the artsy hand painted vibe it gives off. But then again, I'm probably a bit biased. [I also did this fox ring.] The hardest part is the resin! Oy!

While it's still a bit too warm to wear outfits like these outside, I'm excited for the fall. Summer is wonderful and I love the tans, diving, and all-around traveling that come with it! But I also enjoy wearing layers. And even this little cardy was enough coverage to make me run back inside and into the air conditioning. :) Hot coffee in the TARDIS mug probably didn't help matters. ha!
But really, in the nicest way possible - what do you think of the Dalek?
