So ever since I moved to North Bend, OR in july/august i've been very depressed over the lack of craft stores. I kinda just gave up hope because all i could find were antique shops. :( I've been itching to cross stitch lately!! So i finally just googled craft stores in north bend, or. and sure enough it tells me theres one in the local mall, less then a block from where i work. HOW DID I MISS THIS?! I get paid tomorrow. i know where i'm going!! Gonna get me some aida cloth and some dmc thread. i've never bought cloth before, so i hope prices aren't too bad. i know dmc is usually cheap.
SO HAPPY. stay tuned!!
Well today i finally got my first negative comment. It was bound to happen sooner or later i think, everyone has opinions. Although their comment left me wondering. My digital cross stitching, does it look too much like just a filter? I thought i had finally improved my technique but now i'm rethinking it. Is there a way to make it better? use different colors maybe? :shrug:
i usually grab the colors from the sprite itself. maybe i should run the sprite through a pattern maker before drawing it pixel by pixel. guh, the only reason i draw cross stitches in photoshop is because i have dmc thread or aida cloth or anything like that. its all at
So i'm working on my other side project again now that my Crono is done. I'm about 20% done i say and i've already made a few mistakes. D: I'm one of those people were i hate to go back and rip out stitches....so i just somehow go with the flow. I'll find a way to make it look good >.>;; somehow...lol. Hopefully it won't be too noticeable, seeing its part of the face. But yeah, hope to have this done before i go to MN to visit my boyfriend.
From the 11th to the 23rd i'll be there, and then around the 28th i'm moving to Oregon! That'll be exciting.
Has it really been since November that i've written an entry? Man i'm the worst. haha. I still have my bf's b-day project to finish. Not to mention I have started another small cross stitch project to the side. I have a lot of random sketches somewhere too. But yeah, not dead. ^^;
