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:
On to the crafting!
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.
Stitched this little bird yesterday. The pattern in from a little book of embroidery I purchased from etsy (wonderful seller, one of my favorites on the site.) I think I'll turn it into a pin cushion? Maybe a coin purse. WE'LL SEE.
Speaking of sewing with cross-stitch, here's the second felyne destined for a PSP case, Nekoht. He's headed for a case for Elise, while Trenya will be mine. I love his calm expression.
This guy's been done for a while, but I forgot to take his picture. He's about 80% turned into a little purse. I might scrap that, add more quilting, and make an apron instead. Actually, typing the words out pretty much completely convinced to to go forward with that.
A few works in progress. Not sure I'm 100% happy with the pony, but we'll see what painting can do. The jelly rolls were on sale at work, so I'm going to try my hand at quilting something a little more complex.
And, finally, I'm working on a tutorial for how I do my little pixel cross-stitching things. It was cruel the way that stew stopped my progress on day one, but the finished project will be up soon.
