Picky Miss

Longer ago than I care to admit, I received a request for an HP Lovecraft inspired cross stitch sampler.  The commissioner has seen other Victorian-styled samplers I’d done – mainly this one:

and sent me a request that ran thus: “The main things I’d like is for it to look old fashioned, to fit in a space 12” tall and for there to be an octopus/squid hidden in it somewhere. The text I’m wanting is “Ph’nglui mglw’nafh Cthulhu R’lyeh wgah’nagl fhtagn”. You can totally do what ever you like from there if its more fun.”

Cool! I totally did whatever I liked, and after an embarrassingly long time, I came up with this:

I confess I was a little concerned at what I was being asked to realise here, so double checked this wasn’t an incantation to summon the great octo-thingy himself. Was assured: You can’t summon Cthulhu, you have to…

It’s Summertime And The Living Is… Confusing

Dear English weather, what the hell?

It’s gone from frost to heat wave without the nice bearable bit in between. Possibly you’re trying to make up for the total lack of summer last year, but still, a little warning with have been nice.

As a goth, and as a Lupus patient, the sun and I do not have a comfortably working relationship. I quite like those periods between the woolens of winter and the all encompassing shroud of summer where I actually get to (briefly) see daylight. The heat is impeding the creation of art due to the irresistible lure of the beer garden. So, if we could just get back to the regularly scheduled weather so I can get some work done, that’d be greeeeeaaaat.

Thanks.

Obligatory Sales Pitch

Did you know that as well as getting your own specific commission it’s also possible to buy prints of some of my previous work, as well as greetings cards and other fun things?

I now have an ArtFire Artisan Studio! A selection of individual postcards, notecards and greetings cards, as well as larger packs, will be listed here over the next few weeks. And the great thing about this site is that you don’t have to make an account in order to make a purchase!

I also have an Etsy Store including a few more knitting/craft focused items, there are a selection of Christmas cards still in my Folksy Shop and for prints of more or less everything (framed or not, on canvas or just on photographic paper) as well as mousemats, coasters, mugs, calendars (and even a jigsaw puzzle) take a look at the DeviantArt Store.

Ok, enough of that, we’ll get back to our regularly scheduled programming shortly….
