Can’t believe I forgot to post this! On this week’s Nexus Report (A WildStar livestream by the devs) they showed my felted rowsdower in the fanart section! :D
I found a venus fly trap at the grocery store. His name is Herman.
That’s a meal worm in the closed trap, btw. I should have looked up fly trap feeding before feeding him though, turns out that bug is a little too big for Herman’s teeny little traps. I’m not putting the bugs in live anyway, so I’ll just have to make sure I cut Herman’s steak for him until he’s big enough to eat grown up worms. I’m not going to plant him there, but he’ll spend some of his time in the mini garden because it’s nice and humid and warm in there. Just until I get him his own dome, anyway.
im pretty sure this dude’s picture could kick your ass through the computer screen
this dudes hair is currently kicking my ass
Today I got lots of stuff done early in the day, because the UPS guy is bringing me a new graphics card today, so I wanted to be able to spend the rest of the afternoon playing WildStar with Brother. I’ve been working on felting stuff, and the Floette’s arm wire broke, and I have no idea how human noses work. OTL
I made the tiny felt Rowsdowers I made earlier into earrings because I can. :D
Rebagel from my WildStar blog. :D
Selling my Brother drum carder, since I never use it anymore. :) As drum carders do when used, there are some stray fibers still stuck to the cloth. I cleaned it as well as I could, but I don’t have a flick carder so I used my trusty little dog brush. The longer teeth of a flick carder might get some more out, but I’ve carded white wool on it and not had any colored bits get in it.
It works fine, though the handle will probably need to be tightened periodically. I also just noticed some tiny cracks in the cloth (You can see them in the third picture). The rubber feet fell off almost as soon as I got it so those are missing, everything else is present. I set rubber grip cloths from the dollar store under it in place of the feet, worked much better than the feet did and I can include a couple if you’d like.
The tooth density is 120TPI. This one cost me $300 (they’re a bit more now) so I’m asking $150 plus shipping, which is estimated to be about $15 within the US for Priority Mail. International shipping would probably not be worth while for the buyer since its weight would make it cost a lot, so I’d rather only ship within the US.
This is a good way to try out drum carding without dropping a lot of money. This carder produces nice big batts of around an ounce or so of the fine fibers I typically work with.
When I travel, I take pictures of robots.
I went out of town with the family not long ago, and since there wasn’t really anything interesting to take pictures of, I took pictures of Steve and posted them on Instagram for the family I was visiting. I decided to let him tip the housekeeper at the hotel, and got notes back both times!
