20141110 Frisky Unicorn by Miriya411
20141110 Frisky Unicorn
Crewel Dimensions Kit, Frisky Unicorn by Linda Powell, stitched with DMC floss and pearl 5 white and grey thread. It is finally complete. Though that picture is horrible I may retake one later. I finished this up a while ago just have yet to post the picture until today. Now I need to get a nice frame and some matting so I can hang it up somewhere.

This cold blast has been very weird. Not used to bundling up this much before Thanksgiving, ever. Well maybe one year but not sure when the snow and ice storm started before or just after Thanksgiving. The only blizzard like conditions I ever witnessed in TX back in '87. Lasted for a week, the snow would part way melt during the day then freeze again with a wintry mix down pour at night. Making a wonderful ice capped snow all over the place that no one was prepared for. Saw, for the first time ever in my life, a white snow covered Christmas, with about two feet of snow. Ahh the memories. Still it's too dang cold for me. 

Been working slowly on finishing up the bday gifts. Which makes it sad that I did not get them to the bday people on time. But that is ok. They understand. What they don't understand is all the planning and trying to make it happen then it doesn't come out like I wanted. The start overs, the threads just making the worse knots ever. Half way through then noticing that it's off center. UGH! I wanna just give up some times and move on to other projects but no. I can't let it just drop. It has and will be done! Need some coffee and a nice warm spot. I have work to do.

Frisky Unicorn by Linda Powell kit by Crewel Dimensions, stitched with DMC floss and Pearl 5 thread. Almost complete. Just gotta fill in the rainbow. All the horror of stem stitches is over, I hope to never redo them on this one. Though I am not liking the chain stitches I did before, but there is nothing I can really do about it now unless I go back and redo one or more stem stitches. Let's hope it doesn't come down to that.

20141105 Frisky Unicorn
Frisky Unicorn by Linda Powell cira 1983 Crewel Dimensions kit. Almost done, kinda. I really hate doing the stem stitches that are needed for the outline of the unicorn. Just about as much as I hate doing chain stitches. Ugh. I know, I know. It will look great once it is done, it's only a 5x7, it shouldn't take me too long. But I am dragging my feet on this project for no real reason. It's just slow going when I start to work on it and I have to stop ever few minutes for some hubby of mine to say, "LOOKIE!" like a five year old, to show me something on Facebook that I could really care less about at the time. UGH! If I could just be left alone for an hour I could really get most of it done. I love him but damn he can really get my goat at times.

Ok, so I went crazy with the Crewel Dimensions Linda Powell kits. I have all, but like two, and one of them is the Baby Unicorn I am so trying to find the instructions for. But that's ok, I have plenty of kits to base off a how to do it, and I have tons of extra floss. So it shouldn't be too terribly difficult to do. Been pretty much finishing up most of my projects. I have a few more touch ups for the Zelda Triforce to do and a border for the Ezio's Creed and they will be complete. Just need to clean and iron them, and of course put them in a frame with matting. 

Lately I have been running about getting things ready for winter. You know boxing up the shorts, busting out jeans and hoodies. Getting rid of the stuff that has either broken or no clue what it was a part of. So I guess it's reverse spring cleaning? I actually have to get this place cleaned up and packed up. No, not moving or anything, though I wish. The place I live in, they are going through and replacing windows, and all the electrical. Which is nice, but it's a pain for me. I have to clean out the whole apt. Mainly so I don't have to move much. Though I am thinking about getting rid of the monstrosity that is our bed. Water bed frame, no water bed mattress. It is a huge pain in the butt. You can't move it b/c its not just a bed frame it's a dresser as well. To move it you have to take it part, each piece is freaking heavy, it's just, ain't no body has time for that. Just happy that the hubby will be helping me this time. We cleared out the master bedroom in under an hour. Think of what we could do in a day. I really have been wanting to do this for a long time, I just had to wait for him to want to help. Now it will happen. No more piles of stuff in the corners, no more things to maneuver about when trying to get to the Christmas decorations. It will be nice.

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.
