This Saturday (7/15/17) I am going to go to Michigan. It is about a two day trip from here to there. We are visiting my Dad’s parents. I don’t remember the last time I saw them, I was probably about two years old. They have a farm with sheep and border collies and maybe some other animals. On Christmas 2016, they were the ones who gave me needle felting supplies. So, before I visit them I decided to needle felt them a border collie. This is my second needle felted item and has come a long way from my starting bunny.
It has been a really long time since I have posted anything. So I will say what I have been up to. There is a free 3d modeling program called Blender. Basically what you do is you sculpt something, add bones to it, and make movies from your models. The bunny model is my very first thing that I created in Blender around 3/14/17. The cats are more recent. I hope to learn more about how to use Blender and improve on it.
I made my dog Minka out of polymer clay! Isn’t she so cute?
Yesterday was a sad day because my cat, Micah died (pictured in the lower left of the first picture holding his brother, and the second picture). He was such a crazy cat with loads of personality. He loved his brother so much and Camelot slept with Micah in the box on his last day. Micah purred up until the last two days and he was always happy. He lived a fairly long time for having some health issues and would be about 10 years old. Micah definitely lived all his 9 lives. He is a lap cat that showed no favoritism. He would give everyone an equal opportunity to pet him, or play with him. I am going to look after his brother like he always did, and I hope to see him again someday.
He died January 26, 2017.
