not sure how the heck I am going to finish all these projects!! I still have to finish painting five different minis, on top of working on The Castle, and all the Crewel Dimension kits I have now. ACK! I have painted my self into a corner. I really do enjoy working on crafts. It is relaxing and awesome when you finish one. I have so many things I want to finish. I am just waiting for the push to start them and finish them instead of craft hopping from one project to the next.

I am also collecting books again. Granted not by going to the store and having a physical book but by buying the ebook. I have gone through the boxes of books I had that survived the house fire and was able to get most of the titles via an ebook. Not sure if I should keep the crispy books or try to get them recycled. I am thinking of trying for the recycle but they maybe too burned. I guess I will see. But I am driving my husband crazy with all the books I have now, well ebooks. He keeps telling me I will never be able to read them all. I keep telling him that I can, if he would stop interrupting my reading. He still does it, even though he has his own Kindle. Wish he would stop it. Even the cat doesn't bother me much when I am reading. She just curls up next to me, purrs from the occasional pettings and snuggles. /Sigh

Lots of my friends on FB are trying to get me to do beading work again. I found my beading loom, but damn it all I already have too many projects on my hands! I don't think I can add beading to the mix, even though I have already looked up beading patterns for my many fandoms. I even have a cross stitch pattern for my fandoms that I have not even touched yet! :nuu:

20150116 Baby Unicorn by Miriya411
20150116 Baby Unicorn
Crewel Dimensions Kit by Linda Powell cira 1982 called the Baby Unicorn

Cloth is a cream colored linen which the pattern was stamped onto. Thread/Floss is all DMC the Unicorn is stitched with DMC pearl 5 thread.

This took me a long time to complete mainly b/c I had no pattern at all other than the yellowed with age photo that came with the kit. The instructions are god knows where from all the moves plus a fire, your guess is as good as mine. So I did this by that aged photo from the kit. I changed up the colors of the flowers and the outlines of the unicorn to more "modern" colors as the kit had brown as the outline and the flowers were all just yellow. So I tried to give it some more color, not sure if it was worth but I like it! Sadly this little pattern is going back to the person who gave it to me almost 20 years ago. I hope she likes it, and remembers that I was supposed to return this to her when I was done.

20150103 Dark Maiden by Miriya411
20150103 Dark Maiden
Dark Maiden signature series by Reaper Minis

Paints used Citadel, AD&D and Formula P3 paints

Testing the waters with newer techniques. Trying to get the rusted chain and base partly done before I glue and pin it to the base. The angles this thing sits on the base makes it impossible to paint once assembled. So I am really testing myself.

Baby Unicorn Crewel Dimensions by Linda Powell cira 1983

Stitched on cream color linen with DMC floss and pearl 5 thread.

It is coming along. Slow but surely. Still did not have instructions so this is all done by the only picture I have, that came with the kit.

So what a great way to start the year. I am sick. Dizzy, headache, body aches. Miserable. Good news is I finally got a Baby Unicorn Kit which means I finally have instructions for it. So yay! Now for more random, I have been taking Plexus since November. I no longer have colitis pain. No more buying 300 bucks worth of pain meds or colitis "reduction" meds. You have no idea how happy I am about that. No longer do I worry about eating. I can eat without worrying if I will be sick in ten minutes. So yeah. That's a happy thing. I am going to drag my sick body back to bed. I hate feeling this way.

I am a Nerd/Geek and a huge gamer. I love most things that are sci-fi, fantasy and fiction. I am pretty old, and married. Slightly on the oddball/crazy side, but I am never boring. I tend to be very much a birdbrain when it comes to crafts and art. Working on one thing, something else will pop into my head forcing me to stop and go do that other thing or I will go insane. I used to make rich and interesting worlds, characters (the good, the bad) for my hubby to use in our D&D campaigns. Though we stopped playing long ago, I have been trying to write a little about the adventures before they completely leave my head, making room for newer things. Still need to edit and work on those. I work pretty hard on concepts but for what ever reason when I work on them the ideas fall apart and are either forgotten or they stumble out as a giant steaming pile and I am at a lost on how to get it right like it was in my head. As hairbrained as I am, I do manage to once in a while pull off some amazing stuff. But you'll have to stick around to see it when it happens.

How else would I get to see the TW you will stitch some day :) and YW! Sanzo was always a fav of mine :) BTW where did you find that dragon cross stitch you just finished? Most of the craft stores in my area have wolves, cats, prayers, people but no fantasy anything any more. It's sad times.
