I've nearly finished the first of the two holsters I'm making to hold my two versions of Mal's pistol - the one from Firefly, and the one from Serenity. All I need to do is stain it and add the cinching belt and this one will be done.

I'm making a holster for my Mal Pistol.
I've spent some time examining pictures of the holster, and also some of the reproductions I've seen out there, and made a pattern that I hope will work. I've never made a holster before, and I don't look forward to the stitching part *G* but I've been working on a gun belt (not patterend after Mal's, one of my own weird design, based on some western gunbelts and what I had on hand) so I'd like to be able to strap the ol' iron on too ;o)

I'll let you know how it turns out :oD

... from Tattoo number two!

Yes, I'm getting another. Already. :oD

We went in to book the appointment tonight, next tuesday, 4:00.

The hubby's getting a celtic cross on his left forearm - the cross matches a pendent he gave me years ago. I'm getting a norse serpent, the one I use for my heraldry in my medieval group. These tattoos are a bit bigger and more expensive than the last two, but we wanted to get them done before summer really hits since you can't go swimming or expose them to direct sunlight for three weeks - just in time for our trip to the east coast :oD

So. Yeah. hee hee! I'm excited again!

In other news.... I finally shipped Grumm off to [ profile] terimaru yesterday. He should arrive in about one week! You can see pictures of him in his community [ profile] grumm_sees_you! I painted my GIR sculpture, but I coudln't get the right blue for his eyes and accents, so I had to do the best I could. He looks good though, his mouth looks perfect! hee! I'll post pictures later..

Ummm, let's see, what else....

Hubby and I bought some herbs on the weekend and some peppers, which we've now planted in some planters. We're bringing them inside during the night as it's still pretty cold here after dark, but soon it will be warm enough to leave them out all the time. We got some basil, rosemary, mint, oregano, and a few other things. I hope they live! :oD

We took everything out of the shed on the weekend and then our neighbour was throwning away four of his park style benches so we asked him for them. The wood is rotten, but the irons are fine, so... Project!! :oD

Umm... that's all for now I guess...Saw Spiderman 3, but I'm not in the mood to write a review ;oP We've got a wedding this weekend, and one the following week too, so busy busy in the near future!

I hope everyone's having a fine spring so far! *hugs and kisses to all*
