In crafty news, I picked up the supplies for two new projects. Well, almost all of the supplies. I guess DMC 906 is a popular color. The three stores I visited were all out of stock, including backstock. I'm making an order from 1-2-3 Stitch later this week, so I guess I'll have to add that in to it.
Anyways, I picked up one of the Joan Elliot kits by Design Works.
Unlike the version in Bewitching Cross Stitch, the kit is done on white Aida instead of hand-dyed blue Jobelan from Polstitches. I had also picked up some light blue Aida for another project (which is also a unicorn coincidentally) so I substituted that in. The pattern uses pale colors and beads that would have disappeared on the white, in my opinion. This will also be my first beaded project, so hopefully I don't screw it up too much.
As for my other project, I figured I needed something bright and on the easier side so I could work on it during down times at work. I decided that the unicorn from Robot Unicorn Attack was perfect for this. You can find the PDF pattern a few posts down on the Sprite Stitch boards here. I'll also be making this on light blue Aida so the bright colors pop. I might even get fancy and work out some stars or lettering.
