Did someone say something about Friday?

They were kind of crazy. "Whenever" is a better schedule.

First, music sharing! Monster Hunter Orgel soundtrack finally made it, since iTunes is region locked and, therefore, I need the physical CD. Totally worth it, everyone should do the same. Here are the shortest tracks, and the game theme, to preview:

The CD can be purchased here, and information from Capcom (in Japanese) here.

On to the crafting!
Still in love with these stamps

Recently picked up some wonderful stamps at the thrift store. Clearly intended to help children learn how to read they're beautiful animals and simple words. Cue greeting cards, etc. Using above as my desktop, so the whole 1280x800 version is on flickr.

Magazine Pattern: Miniature Pets

Just a bit later then I wanted? Long week.


This one is from Women's Circle Crochet, the Spring 1990 issue. By Judith Stover, it's a simple pattern with 7 variations to make some cute little Easter basket stuffers!

New blog!

Previously I was housing my crafting updates on LiveJournal, but I really want more of a "blog." Especially since I've got a nice new camera, an itchy Flickr account and a lot of old crochet magazines scanned and ready to share.

I have to confess: video games are my first love. Therefore, most of my crafts are inspired by such. I adore doing pixel-based cross stitch, and make cosplay outfits from many of my favorite games.

It's hard to think of something I've done that isn't Japanese culture inspired on some level. I'm a fan of both lolita and himegyaru fashion.

Friday is the day: I will post every Friday with an update of my own crafting endeavors, or in order to share a pattern or some such for everyone to enjoy.
