This is pretty belated, but oh well. My family and I went into the city to see the gigantic Christmas tree they put up every year, and I decided to take Stevie for scale.
Most of the pictures are blurry because the camera wanted to focus on the tree and chose not to listen to my cries of, “Focus. On. STEVIE.”.
We also found a friendly lion who was more than happy to gently hold Stevie for a photo.
I have to say, she was glad when that photo was done. Wonder why….
Just a few hours ago, Fawkes’ halter was finished.
I think he looks nice in bright yellow, it kinda matches a phoenix’s plumage (it being red, orange and yellow).
As requested by cedarwoodstables, here are some images of Fergus’ stand that I made for him, since his Breyer-supplied one broke.
It’s made from air-drying clay, and I followed this tutorial.
So, to Boxing Day. Hope you all had the best Christmas yet and there were some distinctly model horse-shaped forms under your trees. 😀 My distinctly model horse-shaped form came in the form of a certain SBH Phoenix. (English: I was lucky enough to receive SBH Phoenix for Christmas – thanks Mum and Dad!)
His name is GH Phoenix Rising, or Fawkes to his friends.
I’ve loved the Othello/Wintersong mould for a long time, but he is just sensational. I love him from his cute little muzzle to the tip of his awesome multi-coloured tail. In the sun, you can really see how deep his colouring is. Christmas perfection. 😀
I recently read the entire Harry Potter series for the first time and it was amazing. If you haven’t read it, do. You won’t regret it.
Anyways, because Hogwarts is so fabulous, I decided to make a Traditional scarf for each house, and this is the Hufflepuff one.
It’s all done in treble crochet with some black and yellow yarn I had in my yarn bag.
Two rows of crochet to a stripe.
I haven’t got round to the other houses yet as I’ve got a lot of other projects on the go that have deadlines, but I will have a full set to show you guys hopefully sometime soon.
