August 2011 TUSAL

Sorry for the radio silence. I lost my stitching mojo as well as my blogging mojo. I hadn't stitched at all since the Red Yoshis until two days ago when I started something and put it down after a short time. But I finally unpacked my beading supplies. Expect some bead posts shortly of the DS game I am currently finishing. Here is my jar with minimal additions this month; the bit of yellow on top is from my newest start. ♥
TUSAL jar contents: Hogwarts Crest, Psylocke, Dark Toon Link, Yoshi's Island Biscornu, Robo + Atropos, Baby Mario Bib, Jill and Vincent Valentine, Oracle of Seasons Link, Donkey Kong, Pan's Shadow, Vegeta, Cubone and Marowak, Nothing is True, Vulpix and Ninetales, Itsuki & Butterflies
TUSAL backdrop: The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess

Red Yoshis on a Tatami

I was sitting in my ride today and decided I needed to pimp it out a bit. =] I stitched these little guys today onto perforated plastic. I'm going to sew them together and hang them from the rearview mirror of my red Kia Soul. ♥ At first I was going to edit one of the sprites so it would be the back of Yoshi. But this way, he can be seen from the outside and inside. I don't know if I want to outline him in black or red as of yet.
Red Yoshis
Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island
Fabric: 14 count perforated plastic
Colours: 11
Size: 920 stitches

I'll put up some pictures of the finish, hopefully tomorrow. =]

Draco Dormiens

I have been putting a lot of hours into my Hogwarts Crest of late. Here is an update, my Muggles. I finished half of the banner; Draco Dormiens meaning "sleeping dragon." I think. I only took Latin I, sorry. ♥ I'm so happy JK Rowling is giving us Pottermore. As if I need an excuse to reread the series again. Will I ever get enough or will something replace Harry Potter in my heart? I doubt it...

I really love how vivid the colours are. It's such a simple pattern but very gorgeous in person, if I do say so myself. It doesn't look anything like the raw image in this post which is a bit dark and dreary.
 Skein count: 3 black (#310), 1 topaz (#728), 1 medium topaz (#783)
