It has been pretty hot here this past week in Southern California.  I think Hazel is doing a good job of summing up how we've been feeling. It is really hard to motivate yourself to do much when you want to exert as little energy as possible.

Since I seem to have completely lost my ability to remember to take work in progress photos during the week with a proper camera I've decided to just stop worrying and feeling bad about it and just use my Instagram photos.  They're not the best pictures but they show what's been going on in the land of Squshies, they're quick, and I actually remember to take them way more often than regular camera photos.

dinosaurs, wedding, wip -

I've been quite busy this week but somehow don't have any pictures to show. Still I must post something, since I did in fact work on projects, just nothing I've had the chance to photograph.Work on needle felted dinosaurs is ongoing... ideas for getting our felt decorations seen on the internet are moving along slowly... new designs are getting done frequently... steadily learning more and more about rigging characters for animation in blender... wore a tuxedo as best man at a wedding (guess I'll have pictures of that eventually)... and played a ridiculous game of D&D with people I haven't seen in a decade, in which...
