Cross Stitch frenzy!!

I love cross stitches! I have done them since I were young, and my mother has also done a lot of them. I even snuck myself to stitch on hers when I were to young to even understand how to follow the patterns XD

I watched movies when I were young and I stitched and just had fun! I even watched horror movies to relax when I did it XD. But I prefer to either watch crime or to listen to mystery theater from the radio when I do it, I have some old CBS mystery theater, and a lot of NRK radioteateret from Norway to listen to!

I am working on making a christmas calender now, but I don’t feel like doing it when it isn’t winter. And since easter was a time for crime and murder, I had to get some stitching done! I won four bidding rounds on ebay, with 1 dollar for each kit and then between 7-18 dollars for the shipping. But since none of them would arrive before easter was over, I had to go and buy here in Bergen. And I found out that the shop where I buy here has half price on the winter kits! I bought one that I worked on in the easter, and my friend got one of my old ones that were too confusing and small for me XD

Because of school work I didn’t get done, but I will try to do the rest soon ^-^ I have to try and make my jacket first now XD.

Then today I got the three things I won from one seller! The last one hasn’t come yet, but that was from another seller, and since it was cheaper I guess I didn’t pay for fast shipping XD But it is a really cute japanese girl, so I thought I could make it for one of my little nieces for christmas ^-^

I won’t get to start with them for a while, since I have the other one to do and I want to sew a little clothes too. But I have summer vacation in a month, and then I will do a lot! I wonder about asking my mother if she wants one too ^.^ She has done a lot of kniting lately, so since these ones have really big color patterns maybe she could do it ^-^

I even got a gift for buying these! So it was cheap, came fast, and I got a gift! It is butterfly magnets for my fridge!! *LA* love them!

Put them up earlier together with a pig I do not know how got to be on out fridge at all XD.

Today I will just relax and have fun! Will start sewing, since I had to use yesterday to figure out what parts went to each pattern from the book, and then I had to use my writing paper to make copies since I can’t cut them out from the book XD

And also, went to Bergen Akvarie a while back, and I bought a small kitty for my Kadaj plush! I have no name for him yet, but I am just waiting for the right one!

ゴス・ロリ vol.15

I just finished my bachelor hand in, and I had my last japanese class for this semester. Only thing left now is to wait for feedback and then correct the bachelor, and a exam the 19th May.

So, with my exam closing in, I know what I should do! Read all I can each day and do tasks and look over the mistakes I have done trough the year!

And of course I suddenly get the urge to do everything else XD

But the 4th of may is my birthday, so I am going to take it easy until then and just relax a little. I have a presentation about the yokai Kuchisake-Onna for class on monday, but that won’t be so har since it is my bachelor and I have already written 11 pages about her.

So I were at Outland today, and saw the newest vol. of Goth Loli, and I really didn’t think about buying it since it is expencive! But when you think about it the deal is great, there is about 10 patterns in it for the price of maybe 2!

I saw at least two patterns in it that I loved! And one of them were even one of the three that has full size patterns to follow! Lucky!

So I bought it XD. I know I have my Noin costume to do too, but I almost got blisters from working on it because it is more expensive fabric, so I will wait until I get home for the summer since my mom has fixed her sewing machine, and I might ask my brother’s wife if I can borrow hers if mom’s break again.

The first pattern I liked were one of a dress, or more like a top with a skirt attached to it XD I don’t like wearing dresses, so if I make it I will just make it a top and use it with pants I think ^-^.

I love the de-attached arms a lot, and also the de-attached skirt XD It is adorable!

The other pattern is the one that I plan on starting on now. I guess it is one of those I really can’t use outside, but I really liked it! More clothes for Noin!! *runs exited in circles*.

I decided to take other colors than the ones here, and I bought 2 meters to get started with it ^-^ (I’ll soon be poor again…) It is thinner fabric this time, since I can’t get my needles trough the other fabric now to save my life! I wonder if I will make the shorts too? It would be nice to have shorts for the summer XD Maybe I could use it all if I decided to go for Desucon this year? It would be really fun to go as Noin! And the best thing is that since he is a original character I can use what clothes I like! XD

I hope the colors won’t be too bad, if so I will just buy black or grey and then sew it on as the front and this color can be the inside lining instead XD. I have found out now that I love different tones of violet and purple XD

I love the back and the half skirt around the sides! I’m not sure about the arms, and I might change them a little. Maybe I should try and use the same arms as the top over? Not all of it, but the lower part XD.

Well, before I can do any of it I have to clean my room a little, had visit trough easter, and then I had bachelor and kanji test XD, so this place is a mess! I also have had fun bidding on cross stitch sewing kits on the net, and I might post some pictures of them too later!=)

And Pangya has launched the new season! I got 101.000 pang from the last hole on the special shuffle course!! *LA* I also won a lot of rares before it, and won a lot from the rally. I have elf ears for Nell now, and I have both the wedding dress for Hana, and the magical set for Lucia! Also the other cuts for some of them ^-^

Your hopes and dreams

“I collect hopes and dreams!”

That is what I say each time I meet new people. Of course I don’t walk around on the street and do it. (Even though it would be really fun to see their buffled faces.)

I live in the middle of a wonderful and lively city! What city you might ask, and my answer would be: Every wonderful city!

At a special corner of your city I have my house, and if you ever find it you are welcome in. For tea or coffee, everything is free! The only thing I ask for back, is that you tell me your hopes and dreams.

I won’t say anything as stupid as I will make your dreams come true or fulfill your hopes and goals for you. No one can give you the life you want beside yourself.

I love humankind, but I hate humans that don’t work for their own future… they are eyesores!

So tell me your hopes for your future if you ever find a small tea shop in a corner you have never seen before. I won’t make your dreams or hopes come true, but I can give advices for you, and since I love all of you, I want to see your happy futures take form too!

I want a lot of new friends!

People to laugh and have fun with!

Let me listen to your hopes, and in the end some of you might help fulfill mine.

~ The dreams and hopes company ~

I am thinking of a new story to write, something that is not as dark and gloomy as what I have been writing lately. But I love that this lead character so far has become a hypocrite XD

I want to try and write a POV story again, I haven’t done that since I wrote Bakura and Ryou fanfics in my teenage years XD When I try to write POV I just usually stop after the first page because it is a little ackward for me, but I really want to try one! A limited view of the story, and the chance for the reader to see the stories completely trough one characters eyes and thoughts.
