The salmon is among the oldest of animals in existence according to Celtic myth, and of all the old creatures it is the wisest.
Deep in the Otherworld the Well of Wisdom can be found, and around it grow nine hazel trees. Inside the well lives a salmon, and each time a nut falls into the well the salmon eats it. In Ogham lore, the Hazel is the tree of wisdom and knowledge, and for each nut of wisdom the salmon would eat, another speckle would appear on her body.
The salmon can help you dive deeper and gain better knowledge that will grow into wisdom with time and patience.

I finally finished my Game of Thrones sigil plush series. They were really fun to make and they all look great chilling out on my wall, but they do need new homes so I can make more plushes haha! You can see more info for each individual plush on my etsy page here: [link]
Materials: felt, polyfill stuffing, plastic safety eyes. Size: Vary between 7.5" to 10" tall. Completely sewn by hand, no machine sewing involved.
After a few months of being nearly completely inactive, I'm back!
A little chibi plushie of Khal Drogo from Game of Thrones, about 10 cm tall. Made of felt for body and clothes and wool for hair. It was some kind of trial version and I feel his head turned out a bit too big, it will probably be slightly smaller in the next plushies.
This pouch is completely handmade of 4 oz vegetable tanned leather. Everything you see is all hand tooled, the pouch is also hand-stitched. The famous "Winter is Coming" phrase was burned into the leather using a wood burning tool, I think it came out quite nicely. I also installed a metal swing clasp with antique finish to give an aged look to it. The belt loop riveted to the back has a snap fastener that fits any belt or strap size. The leather itself is very sturdy and fairly rigid with burnished edges and dyed with a dark brown antique dye to really bring out the details. I dragged the applicator across the leather to give it a wood grain look. I used Super Sheen finish to protect the leather and make it water resistant.

It's a Mad Dog MkII. I built it in about 20 hours, and it's about 80% technic and 20% system pieces. The model is scaled to be 12 m tall in relation to a 1.4m tall lego figure and has all points of articulation except the ankles (for various reasons). All weapons are visible; 2x LRM 15 in r/l torso, 2x Lg pulse lasers, one per arm, 4x medium pulse lasers, 1 per arm, 2 in the chin-turret. This design would have some overheating problems because of the additional two lasers, but the reduction to LRM15s from LRM20s would help at least a bit and improve longevity.
Unfortunately, the Mad Dog design is such that it cannot stand on its own because of weight distribution. This is Battletech's fault, not mine. It can crouch just fine next to its mechwarrior, though.
I intend to do a rebuild with better coloring and improvement on some parts of design, along with moving a few pieces and proportions around. Chances are I'll go for a Ghost Bear color scheme, mainly because CGB loves these things. The rebuild isn't happening for a while, though.

The exact model design is however created by me.
EDIT: Wanted to mention, I hit a brick wall (pun intended) when it came to the rocket/laser tips. I flat-out don't have enough of any color to do them all, so it came out as this awful blotchy pattern. It's better than no rockets, though.
