As you all know I've had issue upon issue with my laptop! The screen finally packed in this morning!
Unfortunately so did the rest of the laptop :/ I've been trying to fix it all day to no avail! Those on my social media sites will know this already.
As such update schedule on this site will be limited to when I can get on my brothers computer. Unfortunately it means I have no access to ANY of my digital work for the foreseeable future.
I have been dodging buying a new screen (£50) for some time and coming up with temporary fixes (taking advantage of a pressure point in order to have the circuit complete). I honestly don't have spare money to splash out on a new computer. Half of what my next two premades are going to refunds and the other half is due bills. So for at least 2 months I am stuck updating via my phone :/ this means FA/dA updating is pretty much impossible as I can only post journals! I can still use the Twitter and Facebook apps on my phone so thankfully I am not totally cut off!
Current status of the laptop is I can get it to finally turn on and log in but after that it instantly powers off. It's still a lot better from not turning on at all this afternoon. I am hoping that I will be able to get it working in the morning. I hope it just needs a bit of 'down time'. I'm leaving it charging overnight in the hope that that works but if I am honest I don't think it will have any effect :/
Ah this has not been a good month x.x nothing has gone to plan, the refurb project is eating up faaaar too much time as well :/ Percy passed away and yesterday I found out my cat Luci (staying at my sisters) has been missing for 4 days now x.x My stepdad also got laid off at the beginning of the month too! I suppose the positives of this month is actually being able to help my mom pay the gas and electric bills this month! I am eternally grateful for all she has done for me! I wouldn't be making stuff if it wasn't for her, I would still be stuck in limbo trying to support more than my means!
Apologies for the rant but yeah :/ hoping I can fix the laptop tomorrow! Otherwise I honestly don't know what I am gonna do x.x I may even have to open 1 fullsuit slot early with a larger deposit to get both a desktop and materials (I had not planned publicly opening until summer 2016).
Ugh! Very frustrating just now x.x I can still be reached on notes as well!
Update on Pre-Order- hoping to get them cast and packaged by Friday! Shipping payments can be made once they are ready to ship (separate shipping payments makes me happy
Update on refurb premade- sewing up the face fur, tail is made and hands pattern has been drafted.
Update on houndoom- last of padding has been glued, needs shaping. I might need a new DTD as the current one is not holding up too well
I am considering a new approach to the head to make it lighter yet include all discussed features as I am having issues with the EVA foam construction. I might shorten the neck at a later point as well!
I really wish I'mStuffedFur's still shipped to the UK! They have the seal furs I originally wanted for this project! I might have to send them an email once I have the money for fur to see if they will because atm the furs I am looking at for a suitable quality will be £283(roughly $424.50) without shipping. UK furs are expensive x.x I shall revisit that when I come to it!
Update on golden wolf (vyper)- currently status is the same, fur is all pinned and ready for sewing
I'm very happy to be getting though my outstanding commissions list though! The refurb project is one of them. So that's 2 projects that will be complete soon, I'm hoping houndoom will be done before Christmas.
Shiny Houndour I am hoping to start on in January and complete in March at the latest. Kyu should be shipped out around the same time too! On the grand scheme of things the targets are going to plan!
Ok I am rambling a lot now! I shall get back to sewing now! It's 10pm and I can still work till 12am!
