Hello! Thank you very much for all of the happy birthday comments yesterday! Believe it or not, it's more fun to get those comments than it is to get comments about buying hot tubs over the Internet or bootleg Prada bags from Russia, so I really appreciated it! Also, to Kakashi-copycat-kun, I got your request comment and look forward to making the most fantastic eyebrows (I think, I never was sure what was going on there) that have ever been on a sprite pattern.
For today, I was trying to decide between a few different pairs of sprite patterns to post, seeing as today is the third day of Sprite Patterns April, but finally decided that I should just post a couple of the ones I made yesterday and get it over with. Because of that, today's patterns are of the Ninth Doctor, played by Christopher Eccleston, from Doctor Who (in case you had no idea what I was talking about) and Rose Tyler, the companion from his season. I was a little worried about the first of the patterns, so I told my mom that I thought I'd made a completely indistinct looking sprite pattern, despite the fact that I matched it to photos as well as I could. She guessed that it was Christopher Eccleston, though, so I figured it was good enough. Since I'm not worried at all about the pattern of Rose, I'm guessing that it'll turn out that one is actually the terrible one. I have cool glitter floss for her coat, though, so my stitching of her, at least, will be super cool. Anyway, here are today's patterns! There are some notes on one of them,, but nothing too important.
These aren't the last Doctor Who patterns that will be posted this month, but there is one of the doctors, and a popular one at that, that will be conspicuously left out because people have more fun being really rude than saying something even halfway polite, especially if they're using e-mail rather than comment boxes. I do think that the other patterns in the set that I'm working on are pretty cool, though, so hopefully, that one won't be missed by too many people!
My brain feels sort of fried right now, but before I stop blogging for the day, I do want to show off some of the stuff I've been making. I have a lot of small projects I've been stitching, but for today, I took photos of some plastic canvas bookmarks that I've been making. I got the pattern flier "Bookmarks in Plastic Canvas," by Dick Martin, and am hoping to make all eight of the included patterns. So far, I have three done, which isn't so bad! I've been using 7-count plastic canvas for all of them.
I am now finished for today, but I'm going to go work on some patterns for tomorrow, so I don't get so far behind that I end the month with an empty folder of patterns to post. I'll be back tomorrow with more patterns and perhaps more pictures of rubbish that I made!
