I finished the body and the ears today and am currently stitching it together.
I'll reblog with the pictures later today or tomorrow, there are a lot of pictures because I've been taking them after each piece has been stitched on.
COMPLETE!!! Now for pictures and bonus Mick Aston from Time Team!
I was watching Time Team while sewing...

my aunt just dropped by and?? I have SEVEN new babies now!! :D the lighting absolutely sucks here because it's pitch black out and I only have my growlights lighting my room but asdfghjkl
there's four baby spider plants- apparently somehow descended from the one my other late great grandpa grew??- one unidentified succulent that I had to stick in that pot real quick, and two plumerias (one of them's super tiny)!!
I didn't?? even realize you could grow plumerias in pots but I'm looking up how to take care of them now and I'm very cautiously optimistic that I can manage it!!
oh my fuck the baby spider plants are so cute ;w;
Also I finally went and re-did the roof of my mini house this week end
The old one looked uglier the more I looked at it ; round tiles really looks better!
Used the opportunity of having to destroy the previous one to make the new one 'clip-on' : the walls now fold (black tape in the corner) and the roof use notches to stay on. That way everything can be (almost) flat for easier stockage !
Also almost finished decorating~ I really need to finish the bed, but that's enough for a reference as it is. Maybe make more food..?

Now, speech is very curious:
You never know what minute
A word will show a brand-new side,
With brand-new meaning in it.
This world could hardly turn around,
If some things acted like they sound.
Suppose the April flower beds,
Down in the garden spaces,
Were made with green frog-blanket spreads
And caterpillar cases;
Or oak trees locked their trunks to hide
The countless rings they keep inside!
Suppose from every pitcher plant
The milkweed came a-pouring;
That tiger lilies could be heard
With dandelions roaring,
Till all the cattails, far and near,
Began to bristle up in fear!
What if the old cow blew her horn
Some peaceful evening hour,
And suddenly a blast replied
From every trumpet flower,
While people’s ears beat noisy drums
To “Hail the Conquering Hero Comes!”
If barnyard fowls had honeycombs,
What should we think, I wonder?
If lightning bugs should swiftly strike,
Then peal with awful thunder?
And would it turn our pink cheeks pale
To see a comet switch its tail?
thank the gods technology has finally allowed us to know what it's like to be inside of a bag of corn flakes

sometimes a guy likes naturecore and is not feminine, that's his brand of masculinity -which doesn't have to be hegemonic or complicit- and if you're assigning a gender to motherfucking moss and leaves and flowers? that's on you. gonna go pick daisies and look at the sunset now.
took a gender quiz my friend found and it put me significantly more feminine than masculine and i'd just like to say, the creator of that quiz does not understand gender because i am definitely more masc than fem. i just dont like violence
it was so hard to fill in all those floorboards but so worth it bc it looks gorgeous. i love how this one turned out exactly how i imagined it. like it exists now. in the real world. wow

In each corner except for the top-left one, there is a round table with a long white linen. The dark hardwood flooring is covered in white footprints left behind by two pairs of dress shoes, roughly circling the gramophone. End ID.]
i spend kind of a lot of time thinking about my ocs being extremely cool muggleborns and worldbuilding in tandem so here's some choice stuff i've come up with in the process
