Resting on...

Some weeks ago, I shared the start of my new dolly project: customizing a couch for Coco. I kept updating the Project Journal on DoA (although I will post the update of the ottoman after posting this), but I decided to also crochet a small blanket, for winter. The blanket is in process since I'm crocheting it myself (I need to learn, once and for all!) and I'm slow as hell.

Anyways, I wanted to share some photos of Coco resting on the customized couch with ottoman. Everything was sewn by hand, thus, I took ages to finished each white cushion. But I do love the results!


More photos and rambling under the cut!







Then, time to get lunch! This is the only rement I have, and it was a gift from a swap between local collectors, that was made on December of 2013.








Anyways, I want to apologize for the Twitter silence this week, I had a mighty need to rush through Dragon Age 2, and could not stop playing. Dang Bioware and their perfect games. Will finish reading Insurgent and play DA2 again... if I can master the self control to read the book instead of playing. Also, I'm considering buying the Mass Effect trilogy, but the "spatial theme" puts me off. Don't know what to do, I'm a fan of swords, and dragons, and... Dragon Age.

I'm sorry about the gamer rant, I can't help myself :D 

Anyways, gotta go update the Project Journal :3

  2. The cushions look great! I like seeing how extra pieces like that can transform a piece of furniture.

    I totally recommend the Mass Effect series - I love Dragon Age as well (I'm in a third run of DAI right now), but I think ME is probably my favourite game franchises of the past ten years. It has its issues at some points, but overall I think it's a masterwork in many ways.

    1. Thank you!! I loved how the couch transformed with all the cushions!

      Well, I want to play DAI (my PC can't run it at best graphics, though) but I need to wait until the price is lowered or a big discount appears. Thank you for the insight on ME! I'm leaning towards buying the trilogy pack, and will prolly end up the same as Dragon Age: stuck on the same class and romancing the same nerds on each playthrough hahaha. Also, need to wait for a discount on this, too. EA-Origins holds discounts frequently, thankfully :3

  4. It looks really great so far! :D Can't wait to see how it will turn out with the blanket.

    I've actually been thinking about learning how to crochet lately and it doesn't sound like a bad idea to start with a blanket. xD
