Little Update

I apologize profusely for not posting lately.  It's been my last week of school (ever!!) and I've been busy with so many essays that I barely even want to write this right now.  I just wanted to say that I'm still alive, I've just been busy and distracted by many other things, such as homework and Skyward Sword (I'm almost done with it).  I should be posting more regularly by Saturday or Sunday, depends on my mood, I guess. In the meantime, I am a frequenter at the forums and there is a challenge being held this month involving mash ups.  I took a little time out of my busy schedule to stitch a little something up for this event.

I'm very happy with it. It's a mash up between the Zelda II game and portal. I have not played either game, although know the gist of them to an extent, which brought me to think of this.  If you want a pattern, ask and you shall receive.  Hope you are all studying very hard if you're a college student and have a Merry Christmas!!! Happy Stitching!!!!!

Christmas/Winter Themed Patterns

Sorry about the long silence. I've been busy and I haven't had the time to get on.  That and whenever I do think about making a post, I don't want to type anything because I've just been typing my life off.  Procrastination + the Need to Pass to Graduate = No Time for Fun.  In this case, I have 6 assignments and 4 finals to do before next Thursday, and needless to say, I'm a little wiped out.  Anyway, despite the fact that I'm pretty much busy from now to next Thursday, I am taking the time to post some patterns.  They're kind of Christmas themed, but are for the most part just winter related.  It's a shame that I didn't attempt to find more Christmas sprites when I had the chance.  This first one is a dove.  It has a branch thing, so I guess it's kind of Christmas themed.  Barely.

Next is a candy cane, which is definitely Christmas related.

Needless to say, I've been tired lately and since I'm not a coffee drinker and tea and other highly caffeinated drinks just don't do it for me, I drink hot chocolate, which is surprisingly helpful.  That and the library is absolutely freezing and it warms me up just enough to make me happy for a little while longer.  So I have two hot cocoa related patterns up.  It's more like seven, though, but I didn't have the patience (or forethought) to split them up.  Here they are.

So enough patterns and back to homework!!  Oh, and I was very happy to see so much traffic regarding my last post.  I was very pleasantly surprised to see that, not only did I have comments, but that I had FOUR comments.  It's the little things that make me happy.  Happy Stitching!!!

Christmas Patterns and an Update....Kind of

Let's start with the kind of update.  Here's what I've done so far.

Nice right? Heck, there's even a color on it.  However, I was doing some stitching yesterday and found out something....

I counted wrong in the space shown with the blue line, so now everything in the red circle has to be restitched. It's a lot of stitching and time that has been wasted. but never fear!! I have enough floss to remedy the situation.  I'm thinking I won't get back to stitching like crazy until after I graduate, though, so you won't see an update for a couple more weeks.

Now for the patterns.  Only two today because....well, just because.  They're Christmas/winter related so yay, I guess. I guess I'm more bummed about the epic fail on my counting, but anyway....the first one is a tree.

It's large, so I'm thinking it could be done for next year as opposed to this year.  This next one is of a snowman family.  I absolutely LOVE this pattern.  It's small and cute and super simple.  Definitely something that could get done in a day or in a couple of hours.

With that I am off.  I have class and I still haven't had lunch.  Happy Stitching!!
