Floyd's birthday is coming up in a few days here. I made this quick bookmark for him. It's a freebie pearler pattern I've switched over to cross stitch, adding a riding quote.

I'm eager to get my bike back. She's been away for 2 weeks now to get a new paint job. I've asked for a Hayao Miyazaki style forest theme. Sent in a few design image ideas and let the artist know he could look up "princess Mononoke" (or more generically Studio Ghibli) for extra visual helpers. On the sides of my tank I've asked for her nickname Sprout be scripted in silver paint.
This is Sprout as a stock 2011 S40 Suzuki. I've got a special hope that (while I didn't ask for it) my bell will be painted up as a soot sprite. The forest theme is to be on the tank and then I just asked for corresponding blues & greens to be on the rest of the tins. 


Star Trek - The Newest Generation

My Cousin had her baby yesterday. I completed her Star Trek baby sampler as well. Had to tweak the name line as she added a 2nd middle name so I took the last name off, added "Lee" and moved the last name under "Welcome Aboard" as a CO.

Pre-Alteration. The constellations added are for Emma & both my cousin and her husband's zodiac signs. 
Here it is all framed. Though it looks off kilter to me. Hopefully she won't be as critical. Haha
I used my PC Stitch program to make the design layout using a few of the different patterns found in the Star Trek Cross Stitch book.

Working on my Stoney Creek Skunk this long weekend. The mixed threads don't look right though. Where it's one strand black w/ one strand white. They just don't seem to be blending properly to me.
