My New Needles
Thursday, April 5, 2007
Look at these beauties made just for me!

I love these needles with everything! Above you have the full set together.

These are the Day of the Dead needles I asked for. I have always loved the way those specific skulls looked. So when I saw she made them I fell in love.

Then I saw she made custom needles. Which got my wheels turning. What did I really want made into needles. Grim and I are huge H.P. Lovecraft fans (him more so than me) but he was playing Call of Clthulu at the time and it struck me. I want Clthulu and Dagon needles. I sent her a couple of links and this is what came of it. Sorry the picture is fuzzy. The elder gods are not much for having their photograph taken. A link to her myspace is to the right under Scarry Merry. Seriously go and buy as many as your paycheck will allow. I have been talking to her alot and she is a very very lovely and nice person to know. Show some support for a fellow crafter if you can. I'm already plotting my next set. -=giggle=-

In other news... other than the topic of moving being in alot of conversations lately there isn't much else. Grim and I are probably dissapearing to Origins around the 4th of July. Yeaahh! Comic books, RPG and other goodness. I am also looking into the possibilty of traveling around a bit this summer. I love getting in my car and just driving. It's a pain in the ass but I seriously find it peaceful.. I am taking this summer off from school so I can get myself together. My emotions have been all out of wack lately and I don't like it. I hate having bad lows like I have been.

I am however sleeping better for now. My doctor prescribed me some medication that should help me stay asleep instead of always waking up. Tuesday night was terrible. Again, I had a REALLY BAD NIGHTMARE and I woke up, had a clove and relaxed a bit

Knitting wise:

One down and a couple more to go. =)

    OOOOOOOooooooo...I'm liking those needles! I have no idea what I'd get though, I'll have to take some time to think about it. :D

    Road trips are awesome! I envy you, my hubby has to work all year round. :( So...we don't get a chance to do much road tripping except on the weekend.

    Those needles are awesome. I love the Day of the Dead needles. They remind me of _Once Upon a Time in Mexico_!
