Promoting a Class Project, Future Patterns, and My WIP Kit

Hello! Tonight I am writing here mostly because I am babysitting a class Twitter project and I want to make sure a couple more things work before I go and watch TV.

For the project, one of my grad history classes, on history and digital media, is live tweeting the assassination and funeral of US President Abraham Lincoln, for its 150th anniversary, on the account @AbesLastRide! I'm making sure that the tweets go out for the next week, which is way less stressful than I expected. (HootSuite's scheduling is saving me from getting up at 6:20 tomorrow morning, and I am grateful for that.) If any of you are interested in the project, though, you should follow it! Our class has been working on it all semester, occasionally as I sat in the back of the room wishing that Twitter had never been invented, so it's cool that it's finally underway.

With this blog, I'm about to start posting a lot of new sprite patterns, almost all of which have been requested. I am not sure what nonsense I will start doing when it comes down to it, but I've been working on a new requested set of Cardcaptor Sakura patterns, the rest of the Love Live School Idol patterns, and one that was requested quite a while back of the main character from Kill la Kill. (I don't watch the show and can't remember how her name is spelled, except that I suspect it is a different spelling of Ryoko than is used on Tenchi Muyo.)

For tonight, however, most of what I have is WIP photos of the cross stitch kit I was writing about a couple of weeks back. I've taken a picture every time I finish a color, so these are not very exciting, but here they are! I have five colors done, and it is gradually looking less and less weird.
Well, with that done, I was going to post some more, but computers are gradually losing all meaning for me. I am going offline now, but hope to be back and posting again soon! Until then, have a lovely day and good luck with whatever you are doing!


  1. That has to be one of the freakiest patterns I have ever seen and kudos to you for being brave enough to stitch it!!!

    Hope it turns out well, and good look with the Twitter project too :) xx

  2. Hah, I was about to comment the same thing; those printed patterns look so strange! I haven't stitched any stamped kits before, do you find that the colors are covered by the stitches just in case that backing doesn't wash out? Looks pretty good from the photos! :D Love how the little cat(?) goes from alien green to a much nicer white haha.

    1. It does cover up really well! I don't like some of the gridlines, so that'll bug me a little if those don't wash out, but if that's the case, I'll find a way to frame it that shows all of the border stuff, too. It's cool to watch it go from weird to normal looking, though, and a relaxing project to work on.

  3. Hello :)
    I was just wondering when you're gonna post patterns again? I love your patterns and was wondering if you could please make the Disney Princess' like all of them because they'd be really fun to stitch!
    Also I was wondering if you could please make more Harry Potter ones, and also the Assassins from each of the Assassins creeds games, and Star Wars characters would also be amazing!

    Sorry, I just discovered your blog and have a huge list of patterns I've always wanted

    1. Hello! If you e-mail me, I can send you a lot of the Disney princesses, but I have not done Assassins' Creed or Star Wars before. I can picture Star Wars pretty well, but when I read that, I thought, "Wait, what? The Assassins' Creeds are not all the same guy?", so admittedly, Star Wars would be first.

      No, don't be sorry! I've been really, really busy lately, so I'm getting behind on blogging. In a couple weeks, I should be back to it pretty well.

  4. That's a fun-looking stitch; from weird to normal lol! You're doing an awesome job on it :D
