I'm appalled at how long it's been since I've made a charity offer. Appalled, I tell you!

From the info at [community profile] help_for_ephemere:

This is a fundraiser to benefit [personal profile] ephemere, with the aim of supporting her in the wake of her losing her job, home, and good relations with her family due to homophobia. The idea of this fundraiser was conceived by friends of [personal profile] ephemere, and is being run with her permission. Funds will go to rent, utilities, food, and medical bills.

We are accepting donations (please contact the mods via PM for more details) & are also running an auction as follows:

The auction will open for offers on Thursday, July 5.

All auctions will open for bids on Thursday, July 12.

Bidding will be open from Thursday, July 12 at 21:00 GMT to Saturday, July 21 at 21:00 GMT (time zone converter).

Please see our FAQ for more information!


My customary offer can be found here. I know it's not a lot of time or warning, but I still want to do something if I can. If you have the means, please consider helping out!

Over 900 people in Mindanao, Philippines, have died in the floods that Typhoon Sendong (local name)/Washi (international name) just days before Christmas. Hundreds more are missing.

Please help us in putting together donations for these people who desperately need your help.

Well, you know me; I'm always eager to help out a good cause. I know money might be a little tight since a number of big holidays just ended, but please do consider taking a look around. Or maybe offer something yourself!

If nothing else, please spread the word. The community itself is in an S2 stile, comments likewise, so LJ's new default comment form shouldn't be a problem.

My customary offer is up here [CLOSED].

[livejournal.com profile] fandomaid has a fandom auction set up for relief in Somalia, which is currently suffering a horrible drought, famine, and a cholera outbreak. My offer is up here [CLOSED]. If you like my work, please consider making a bid for my services.

Hey folks :) I wanted to have a new pattern up today, but unfortunately my life has dissolved into a hot mess. I need to move out of my apartment by noon tomorrow, and open the registration desk for AnimeIowa by sometime tonight. Between the two of them, those tasks have me almost completely occupied.

If I get a spare hour or two, I'll try and see if I can't get the pattern up anyway. Otherwise, well, I'll either see you next month, or at AnimeIowa.

For those of you who can make it there: I'll be running the panel Plushie Madness at 5:00 pm Friday. I'll be at the con all weekend, wearing this and handing out flyers for the Brain Slug Party. Hope to see you there!

Edit: I'm officially back and more-or-less recovered from AnimeIowa! Special thanks to everyone who stopped to admire (or buy! :O) my work, who showed up at my panel or just asked questions, and everyone who showed up in general. I've got some unpacking to do after my move, but I'm hoping to get the "Lemonsnout" (officially: small scalemate) pattern up later this evening or tomorrow.

On an unrelated note, a friend of mine from a feminist blog I follow is selling bearded dragon amigurumi with 50% of all profits going to benefit live bearded dragons in rescues. Please stop by if you're interested in helping animals in sticky situations. [Content Note] for some discussion of people being jerks to animals.

This is a custom pattern commissioned for [livejournal.com profile] help_pakistan; the winner requested Kumano 900 from the band U900, seen here on YouTube. [WARNING for the bunny, whose design is, quite frankly, racist; it's the bear I'm making, but I felt it best to warn.]

A [livejournal.com profile] help_pakistan pattern! Not the custom pattern (I'm still working on that one), but a pattern from one of the custom amigurumi I offered to make. I've gotten confirmation from all of my bidders now (yay!), but only requests from two, and now I've, uh. Finished one already ._.a See, inspiration took hold, and would not let me go, so. Uh. ...Look, I'm really tempted to make some sort of "pony express" joke here, but history jokes are better left in the hands of the master herself, so I'll just do some linkdropping and get to pattern posting.

From Hark! A Vagrant: You may remember the Shetland Pony?
Pony Hitman
Shetland
In Service of the King
Pony Prince
Pony Returns
Pony Meets a Ghost

Yeah, one of my winning bidders requested that :Db

Pictures first! )

And now, back to work on the custom pattern! *Rosie the Riveter pose*

hooked_on_anime: Three chain stitches in blue yarn; pink crochet hook being maneuvered by green arrow into first stitch. (Starting from a chain)
The first round of auctions at [livejournal.com profile] help_pakistan has closed. There were four winners in total, which means up to four new patterns to go up on this blog, and that much more aid to Pakistan. I am planning to sign up for the second round, which is coming up in about a week, though I don't yet know exactly what I will be offering. (Well, aside from two specific things, which I am attempting to keep slightly under wraps for the moment...) I suppose it'll depend on when the product deadline is.

Anyhow, patterns that are definitely coming:
* Kumano 900 from U900
* The fat pony from Hark! A Vagrant

Will there be others? Well, not necessarily for this round. I'll find out for certain as the other winners contact me.

Look forward to a pattern for Buu-chan, AnimeIowa's mascot, in the near future; I finished him up on Saturday, so there's no conflict of interest, yay \o/

[livejournal.com profile] help_pakistan is a mostly fandom-oriented charity bidding community set up to offer relief to Pakistan from the recent flooding. My threads are up over here (finished amigurumi) and here (custom pattern) [AUCTION CLOSED].

If you have ever wanted one of the amigurumi I've made, whether the pattern is up here or not, I would like to urge you to put in a bid over there. In fact, I'd recommend you look around everywhere, in case you might see something you want. Pakistan is in desperate need of help, and this is a great way to do it.

Edit: Bidding closes when this clock runs out. There will be a second round of bids and offers in about a week, which I also plan to participate in, so if this round was bad timing for you, you've got another chance on the horizon.

Okay, let's get this done! It's only, what. Five days after I'd said I'd have this up at a more coherent time? I'm totally more coherent now.

I also found Kero-chan's pattern, and now have multiple copies, so expect that up soon-ish!

Happy stitching :)

Hello all, I'm back from Real Life :) Er, well, more-or-less. Met a bunch of fantastic people at AnimeIowa, where I was a total egomaniac ^^a Had a blast with everyone. An extra hello and also internet hugs (if wanted) to anyone I met there ♥

I'll be putting up Burupya's pattern at a more coherent hour (I'm currently pretending it's not ~3:30 AM in my time zone), and Kero-chan's will be following just as soon as I find out where I put it and type it up -_-a At least I kept Kero-chan, so I can roughly work the pattern out backwards from him...

In the mean time, here's me blatantly showing off some preview pictures of the projects to come :3b

Burupya/Mikage from 07-Ghost )

Kero-chan from Cardcaptor Sakura )

Anyhow, I'm off to either get some sleep, or dig around some more to try and find Kero-chan's pattern. We'll see what I feel more like doing. Once again, Burupya's to come later today. Hearts to all!
