Happy New Year!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
Starting the new year in a lazy way. Spent the last two days eating sweets and chocolate (damn, those bad but lovely Christmas sweets!), watching movies and TV and working on my new project.

I was working on a mole but I was not completely satisfied so the mole has to wait a little. 

Since 3 years I have this weird problem with my hands which gives me infected aching fingerstips all the time. Especially now when it is winter. They get red, blue, swollen and feel like burn blisters.
 I don't feel like telling the whole story at the moment but it means that my fingers hurt so much sometimes that I can't work as often as I would like to.

Anyway, 
now I am working on a sloth. 
At the moment I am making his too long arms. I hope to finish him by the end of this week. 
( I have 2 jobs so I can't always work on it. )

Here is a preview:


I am still thinking about a name... 

Hope to show the end results soon.

  1. Hi Mel,

    Happy New Year. I am very sorry to hear that you are having difficulty with your hands.

    Now, that is a face that you first have to smile, and then fall in love with. Oh my goodness, what a cutie.

    Can't wait to hear what you name him/her.

    Hugs.

  2. Thank you so much! Glad you like him/her. Actually I don't know if it is a boy or a girl. I think a boy but that can change, hehe.

    Many hugs,

    Mel
