On the right is my wonderful cat Maximus. He is the sweetest giant lug of a cat in the world and right now he needs the help of the citizens of Planet Earth!Both my mother and I just didn’t know we had to keep him indoors when he was younger because of his pink skin and white fur. Now we have to pay for that ignorance (and so does he) with the fact that he now has skin cancer on his ears (and a small amount on his nose, but nowhere near as badly as his ears). We keep him indoors now during daylight hours and while that has kept it from progressing even worse, but it hasn’t cured it by any means. Parts of his ear have fallen off now and the skin is so damaged that it easily breaks and bleeds if he scratches it, bumps it against stuff etc (and he’s a serious bumphead when it comes to showing his love). So we have to be reserved in our cuddles for fear of opening up a scab on his ear. (Dexter would have a field day with the blood splatter around the house >____>)Anyways I am here now asking for the help of my fellow friends/followers/humans/nonhumans/cat lovers/nice people in general to help me and my mother out in paying for his surgery. The vet has quoted the surgery being anywhere between $1300 to $1700 depending on if we get biopsies and stuff done (not quite sure if we need to, going to talk to the vet further next week when we go in to get his blood work done, hoping we don’t because it’d be cheaper)We’re looking into taking out a line of credit with “CareCredit” but would need to make sure it was paid off in the time allotted OR ELSE we will probably be in debt for the rest of our lives. My mom is also going to talk to our credit union about a loan or line of credit with them also, but the fact of the matter is still that we don’t have enough to pay for it.I wish I could just cover it all myself, but I’m on a limited income (disability) and my mom earns hers helping me out along with a few other odd jobs, so we’re not really flush with extra income besides food and rent/utilities.Thank you so much for reading through this whole post! Here is a link to my PayPal donate page for his surgery funds. Any amount will help us at all, again thank you so much!

Oh my goodness just stumbled across your blog and you're so adorbs! Love your blog! I have a question: where did you get your sewing machine? I really want one (that won't leave me extremely poor) but also one wig stitches like the ones yours come with :3

EEEE AWE! Thank you so much! YOU ARE SO ADORBS!! <3 I bought my sewing machine at the best most wonderful sewing machine shop in the world Parkside Sewing in Santa Rosa, CA. They specifically sell Bernina and Janome brand machines.

I did 80 billion years of research when I decided to purchase a machine and since a Bernina was way out of my price range, this was “the one” (though this one was too but I got a little help from nice people). It was a little bit over $400 after taxes. Since 4 of my other super crafty friends all own this model as well, I felt pretty confident in my purchase.

The model of my machine is a Janome Magnolia 7330, you can get them online but one thing to take into consideration is if anything goes wrong, you will have to pay shipping to get it fixed/checked out. If you buy from a local store, you can take it in and usually they have 1 or 2 years worth of service warranty. (Parkside Sewing offers 2 years worth of service and all the instruction and help you could possibly want!) Just make sure you buy from an authorized retailer or else the 25 year limited warranty from Janome won’t be honored!

I don’t know where you hail from on Earth but if you live in Northern California I can highly recommend them, otherwise on the Janome website, you can use their “find a retailer” thingy to find someone near to you who sells them! :) 

So far I love my machine so much, it’s taken a little bit of learning with a few things but that’s natural for any machine, I’ve only barely started using the majority of the stitches, I must say the automatic buttonholer is the coolest ever!! It’s super easy and straight forward to thread (the automatic needle threader is SWEET).

I kinda wish I’d had an extra $100 or so and gotten the next model up which had a few more cute decorative stitches (like hearts and stuff) but I didn’t REALLY need that and it was a little too much, but YEAH I <3 THIS MACHINE IT’S MY CUTIE BESTIE.

YES IT HAS BEEN DONE. I GIVE THEE, THE PUSHEEN MACHINE. I was so bummed out about not getting the special edition Janome Hello Kitty machine so this is how I make myself feel better. (Thanks Hey Chickadee for having the best stickers ever for sale)

I needed a pin cushion super bad and I also wanted it to be super cute, so I made this!!I realized after the fact the fabric I used even makes it resemble a 1 up mushroom! BONUSI didn&#8217;t really use a pattern but if anyone wants one let me know! I used those bead things they put at the bottom of flower vases at the bottom of the mushroom to keep it weighted down/not as likely to fall over (next time I make one I think I&#8217;ll make the bottom a little bigger)

I like the detail on the tetris apron where none of the lines are totally filled (since, obviously, that would empty the line.) Too often I see Tetris promos and stuff will filled lines.

YES!! I’M SO GLAD SOMEONE ELSE NOTICED THIS!! :D I too appreciate the attention to that detail as well! I got this fabric from spoonflower.com just in case you’d want to get some yourself! :)

FINALLY FINISHED MAKING A NEW THING!! Using a super cute vintage apron that had seen better days, made a pattern from that and BOOM. I love the pleats. I need to get better pics of the ties but EVEN THEY HAVE PLEATS. I love vintage stuff. Pleats all up in everything!

And yes for anyone who is curious these will be for sale eventually in 3 different sizes and also an option for the pocket to be on the left side for lefties (these will be coming in numerous patterns)

Please don’t hesitate to inquire on here!

click this to go to check out my soundcloud!!

I finally got around to uploading my recordings of myself on the uke and singing into a place where people can also hear them! Got some oldies, rock and punk covers, that kind of stuff! 

I love (nice and or constructive) feedback and also do song requests so please message me! <3 

They aren’t super impressive, I just recorded them on my computer so don’t expect MASTER MIXING. 

This is a cover I did of a song my friend’s bluegrass band does, it’s my jaaam, so of course I had to learn it, this was my first time harmonizing with myself, a very surreal experience but it was fun!


I keep wanting to post a bunch of my favorite songs I’ve done on this post but just go to the thing itself and listen to them!!

yay!! I scored this super cute new winter coat for free but it was missing all it’s buttons! I wanted cool buttons so I spent hours looking online and was very dismayed at my options (and also the lack of giant black heart ones) so I decided to just make some out of Fimo! That stuff is magic, I’m super happy with how they came out!

I thought of this a billion years ago and kept putting it off UNTIL YESTERDAY. This Boo stitch surpassed my expectations of what it looked like finished! So happy with it! The Boo starts out on the left breast and ends up on the right shoulder (like it MOVED. I don’t know if my photos do that part justice). I spent about 6 solid hours working on this one!

I stitched this onto a size Large cardigan sweater (it only has three buttons to button up on the bottom, and the arms are very long!). If anyone is interested in doing a purchase or trade, please don’t hesitate to contact me! :) <3

my good friend Phil drew this super authentic and accurate picture for me of me after I cajoled him into drawing again (YA OLD CURMUDGEON). Now I&#8217;m pleased to see him drawing things all the time! Please check out his tumblr. And also the webcomic he is involved in making as well The Guilded Age!
