Ouch! Almost a year...

Wow! It's been almost a year since my last post! Way too much has happened in the last 10 months...I moved, changed of all I will be getting a new kitten soon (as soon as he's born and old enough to leave momma...) As for crafting...I'm in my senior year at Uni so I haven't had much time for crafting (though I intend to take full advantage of the two or three weeks off I will have between the end of Spring and the start of Summer semesters...) But, I did manage to find time to embroider my new backpack for school, so without further ado here are some piccies!

Here is a full view. The backpack is just your typical Jansport (I removed the logo patch) The patterns I got from It's the Kurt Halsey patterns, based on his artwork. I have a couple of close ups for you too!

This is a close up of the sweet little bluebird (my favorite! Done in stem stitch) And a little bee (he's just backstitched. My thumbs hurt too bad after the birdie!)

Here is the darling angel (not me! Heh.) And another lil bee. I love the bag. Its perfect for all my books and such and I know no one else on campus has one. It cost a lot in blood, sweat, and tears, though. That heavy canvas was a bi-otch to stitch through! So stiff, I didn't even need a hoop!
