Today has been a great day: I managed to drop my wiggly toddler (WT) at his grandmothers house and found myself in the rare occasion of having a couple of free hours. At first I was running around trying to get my hands on every unfinished project in sight (lots and lots of those!), but then I felt SO VERY CREATIVE.
This little lady has been haunting me for some time now, especially after I saw her Cat Cosplay version. So today Happy Stitch proudly presents —

This design can also make a great magnet or keychain if stitched on a plastic canvas.
It seems that I’m making more and more of video game designs, both for my shop and as freebies. And then agian, why not? I sure hope that you enjoy stitching them, dear readers 🙂 Today’s freebie is the battle cry in dragon language from Elder Scrolls Skyrim, the Fus Ro Dah.

Once again – a bookmark based on Hayao Miyazaki‘s character (following Totoro bookmark made last week). Today it is the black cat Jiji from the animated movie “Kiki’s delivery service”, that tells the story of a young wanna-be witch Kiki, who earns her living making deliveries by broomstick.

Stitch count: 37w X 95h stitches, 6 colors
Do you like Hayao Miyazaki? If you haven’t seen any of his animated movies, I strongly recommend that you do. Start with Academy Award winning Spirited Away, proceed to Howl’s Moving Castle and enjoy! Meanwhile here is a pattern based on a character from a 1988 film My Neighbor Totoro, forest spirit Totoro himself. As it often happens, I hope to make more Miyazaki-inspired petterns 🙂

A perfectly normal sampler except that it has Klingon pIqaD alphabet and numbers 🙂
I have to admit that I haven’t seen much of the original Star Trek series. But I bumped accidentally into Wikipedia article on Klingon language and was quite amazed how much effort was built into developing the Star Trek universe in whole and Klingon part of it in particular. As a lover of different languages and cultures I knew I should make something like this.
Today’s pattern is completely original and is based on my own drawing of a turtle with a forest on it’s back.
Style of the forest is inspired by beauty of The Book of Kells animation, and the idea of this picture comes from the cosmological myth of the Great Turtle, that carries the world on it’s back.
The vibrant colors and animation style of this pattern will make it a great decoration for a playroom.
Stitch count: 110w X 135h stitches, 20 colors

Did you know? (I didn’t!) In some Native American tribes the Turtle Island is a name for North American continent.
Like that pattern? Say ‘way to go!’ in comments! 🙂
