May be MIA for a while. My family had to put our cat, Panda, to sleep because he has internal bleeding and would not likely survive surgery since he’d be too weak against the anesthesia. Of all the cats we’ve ever owned, he was my favorite. He was very gentle, sweet, a total basketcase, and adorable companion. We’ve had him his entire life, and now he’s gone. His passing makes me fear death a lot more than usual. One fact you may not have known about me is that my greatest fear is abandonment, whether by leaving by choice or by death. Although I’m with family and friends, I feel so alone without Panda. I’m not very religious, but being raised with Christian beliefs I believe there is a heaven. I’m just afraid that he’s scared up there because he’s not with us, not with me. He’s been there for me through the toughest times of my life: when my mother tried to kill herself, when my father tried to kill himself, when my mother broke her knee, when I was forced to break up with my ex, when I found out my ex cheated on me with my now ex-BFF, when I broke my ankle, and when we lost my uncle to pancreatic cancer. He was my baby, my brother, my best friend. I need some time to mourn. Thank you all for sticking with me.
I made a video introducing basic supplies for knitting and crochet. Sorry for no updates. I’ve been busy with school. But I’m on spring break now so I will try to type up a pattern or two and post them here. I also plan on making a video while I work on a St. Patrick’s Day charm bracelet as a speed-sculpting video [as apposed to speedpaint videos]. And I’d like to start shooting videos on basic stitches for knitting and crochet. I haven’t quit Doodle a Day; it’s just schoolwork has been keeping me from scanning my drawings and then line them and color them on my computer, so I probably won’t be able to do that until June. That will be a busy month. Thanks so much for sticking around!
Oh, goodness, no! xD I would ship them anywhere in the world; they’re already listed in my Etsy shop.
