Haha that's so adorable!  I love the adjustment you made to the Obama logo to add the paw print!   Grin

ooo, Homestarrunner is for the frickin win.  You did an awesome job on it! 

I have the "Seriously" background on both of my computers.  I'm half tempted to make it into a stitching project someday, just like I plan to stitch all sorts of things someday.   Grin

You sir are made of awesome.  I've spent tons of time trying to search out movie/gaming patterns but it's really up to us to create them since traditionally it's the pretty stuff that sells in stores.  You actually reminded me that I have to stop being lazy and put together a pattern for the Horde symbol from World of Warcraft for my boyfriend.  Of course, I have so many patterns I want to stitch or create from images that I'll be busy for the next couple decades!   Grin

The last time I flew anywhere I didn't have a problem, but that was back in November 2007.  I was paranoid about what I was taking as it'd been years since I'd flown.  I went to both the airline website (US Airways one time and United the other) and also to the TSA website to check their rules.  I saw that at the time you were permitted to take embroidery scissors where the blade portion is no longer than 3 inches in length.  Thankfully my good pair are just that size.  I printed out the listing to take with me in case someone gave me a problem.  Nobody did.  I was going from Philadelphia to Burbank, CA and on the first trip had to go in and out of a couple airline checkpoints because I wasn't careful enough about what my layovers looked like.   Cheesy

I'm heading to Florida for a vacation next month, so I'll be scouring those sites again for rules and regs and printing them out just in case.  I hate nail clippers and typically use pocket knife scissors to cut my nails... so.. <3 me some scissors, haha.

This is geek-fab to the max.  I spent a good long while browsing your archive of anime/game related patterns and already have a few in mind that i'd love to stitch up and hang around my house.  The Death Note title one is one i think i want to find a way to make a headband for my bf out of.  He plays tennis and has asked for anime/video game headbands he could wear to keep the sweat out of his eyes, but the only ones I seem to find online for sale are Naruto based and he's not a Naruto fan.   Shocked

I loved the Evangelion stuff.  It has inspired me to try making some patterns for Escaflowne or Serial Experiments Lain.  yay geek factor!
7  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Re: How or where do you store your embroidery supplies? on: September 29, 2008 04:52:23 AM
My stuff tends to get all over the place, but in general I have a crafting closet that I put together when I moved into my house last fall.  I went to Ikea and bought a few hanging closet organizers and a few of the drawers to go with them, so things that are loose can go in drawers and stackable things just get stacked.  My floss is in 4 of the inch high plastic sorting boxes and painstakingly organized by floss color number.  Boy was that a pain in the rear but well worth it.   Smiley
8  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Re: What do YOU do while stitching? on: September 28, 2008 03:09:40 PM
Hm, sounds like a lot of us do similar things while stitching.  I usually work on my bigger projects while reclined on my couch with the TV on, but I have been known to take my bigger projects to the beach with me when I go there with family.  If it's not too windy it's such a relaxing way to work on stitchery. 

I usually also have a small project started which I call my porta-project.  Typically I take this one anywhere I might need entertainment.  I take it to work to work on in the lunch room while gabbin with coworkers, or to the doctor's office just in case they're running behind schedule and I'm stuck waiting or anywhere really.  The small projects are great for portability and working on in random places.   Grin

Oooo, that looks nifty!  I hope it works well because I've wanted to try embroidery but me an irons tend to not be too friendly and I knew that was one of the easier ways to transfer a pattern.   Tongue

Hi everyone!  as mentioned, here are the progress shots for my big project.

Here is an image from the Dimensions kit cover of what it'll look like when I complete it:


When I picked up this project this summer, only the head of the wizard and the yellow shine from whatever spells he's casting were completed.  This image is where I was after doing nothing but reclining on my couch for about 2 weeks straight after I returned home from the hospital following my back surgery at the end of June.


This is approximately where I am now.  I took this image yesterday morning (9/24/2008) but got more done in the lower left corner while watching Dancing with the Stars and some UFC fighting with my bf.


Here's a close up of the bottom of the wizard:


And a close up of the dragon's tail and the rock it's standing on:


I'm currently working mostly in the lower left corner because the colors are lighter and easier to work with in the evenings when the lighting in my house is crappier/dimmer.  When I get chances to work on it during daylight hours I focus more on the darker colors of the dragon and rock since daylight works best to see the color differences.
