Old Stuff Day original art by http://firstkeeper.deviantart.com/
However, this time around I'm going to dredge up something older (and more amusing) than any post on this blog.
Back in 2005 I created two "life-sized", stuffed Gnoblars for use at a crazy Games Day event - Gnoblar Punting. Creating the patterns, cutting the cloth, and hand-stitching it all was certainly a labor of love. My wife was incredibly surprised by my sowing skills, especially given the number of undarned socks in my dresser drawers. The Gnoblar above and his partner in crime (not pictured here) went to quite a few Games Days and had the snot kicked out of them by enthusiastic punters.
The reason I bring him up tonight, of all nights, is that I've just repaired this one and given him to my almost three-year old daughter, who has promptly named him "just the Gnoblar".
I hope you like him as much as she does : )
