So I was digging about in my piles of stuff (yes piles) and I found the cutest little embroidery by Crewel Dimensions labeled Baby Unicorn by Linda Powell. It's not mine, really, a friend's mom gave it to me and told me to stitch it since I was pretty good at sewing, cross stitching and such. I was pretty much happy when I saw that the plastic was taped up from it being opened so long ago. Every thing was there but the instructions. So I have spent some really long hours which have turned into weeks, and now months researching this little kit in the hopes that I could find it. It's sad that there is no archive of these old cross stitches or embroideries. It's not like you can't charge let's say any where from $1 USD to $10 USD for a PDF of the instructions. But I am complaining b/c well this sucks. I am so frustrated that I can't pull this one straight out of the air and bring it to life. I also just can't give it back to her and say, "Sorry I had this for so long, and I couldn't even do it." If I did that I am sure my Mom and Grandmother would some how find out and even though I am old, I would be in so much trouble. /head desk

Working on: Ezio  the spacing on the creed is really tricky...too tricky.

2014-10-18 Ezio
The hard work of remembering what was what for all the backstitching minus his arm. Ezio is almost complete. Working on the spacing for the creed, which will be to his left, the Assassin's symbol and the sync health bar near the top. Was made on 14 count Aida off white cloth with DMC floss. And yes I will make a pattern for it, just no time to actually sit down and make it. But it will happen

Disclaimer: I do not own the right for Assassin's Creed or Ubisoft, I just love the games (which I do own) and made this for another AC fan.

20141016 Ezio
This is going to be Ezio Auditore from the Assassin's Creed 2, Brotherhood and Revelations in his black color robes. It is a work in progress, done on cream color 14 count aida cloth with DMC floss. I will post a pattern for him later on when I am not in a rush to complete everything. Basic colors are Red, Black, Lt Steel Grey, Dk Steel Grey and Vy Dk Grey. This is for a friend who's bday is today (Oct 16). Though it's no where near complete, to left of Ezio will be the assassin's creed, botton left corner will have the A symbol for the assassin's and the top left will have the old DNA health/sync bar. Not sure if I will add a border or not. I will add more detail by back stitching some silver metallic through the shoulder/chest plate, his bracers, and belt. Though he is not done yet, it will be soon.

2014-10-10 Triforce by Miriya411
2014-10-10 Triforce
This is a complete work in progress as you can see. All made with DMC floss on white 14 count aida fabric. The triforce and the Hyrule symbol are all from one pattern (Found here: www.spritestitch.com/forum/vie… ). I did not like the gems or the colors of that pattern so I picked these instead; found here (www.spritestitch.com/forum/vie… )  There will be the six sage medallions around it once the triforce is complete. I will add a single backstitch border around each gem to make it stand out from the triforce it's self. They will be the three basic metal colors Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald paired with it's gem. The scissors are there for size reference. To make it all fit, all I did was center the triangle and the gem. Yes the gem will be bigger than the triforce and that is ok. They are not bright orange and chocolate brown with bits of gold color surrounding the really oddly colored gems from like a 16 bit game. /Sigh This is a gift for a very awesome person who loves the Zelda games more than I do, which is a lot.  Please feel free to use the pattern once I am done completing it, i hope to have one up so it's easier for everyone to make one. If you do make one, please link me, and the other pattern makers, and of course I'd love to see it!

I am totally in love with Oct. Not only is it Halloween, hockey starts, the temps start to get cooler, it's just amazing! I love this time of year! :squee:

Been working on birthday gifts for my few friends, pics will be posted soon. Taking a break from painting for now due to the gifts. All the gifts are cross stitches. One is a Zelda pattern that I pieced together from other patterns. Now I know, I need to post these patterns so others can enjoy them too. It's just not been in the cards as of late. So I will try but don't think it will happen any time soon. Another is an Assassin's Creed, which I have yet to start on, I really should work on it now. And lastly is a Tribute to Kefka, from Final Fantasy 3/6. I have already made up the patterns for the last two, though they are just blocks on a piece of graph paper with words saying what is where. Nothing fancy but it will rock. The Castle and other projects have been placed on a shelf until the other patterns are complete. I totally forgot that I was making a Gunther for the hubby. That too is in a planning phase.

Playing: Puzzles and Dragons - why, b/c that's why
Reading: Eye of the World by Robert Jordan, book one of the Wheel of Time series (still need a hubby free area so I can finish it)

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.
