7 Things about me..

I've been tagged...For the first time! By Megan, I don't know how to play this. But I hope I do this right. =)

It is about 7 things about me. Rules first!

Here are the rules: Each player starts with 7 random facts/habits about themselves. People who are tagged need to write on their own blog about their seven things, as well as these rules. You need to choose 7 people to get tagged and list their names. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they have been tagged and to read your blog!

Megan dear here you go.

1. I don't know how to cook.
2. I grew up under the care of a gay cousin (while mom and dad goes to work). Until i was 8, I called him 'mama'.
3. I was very evil while i was little, i was the pickiest eater in all the universe, I'd throw food at my gay cousin if I did not like what he cooked for me.
4. OCD about house cleaning.
5. I have 3 piercings on my left ear and 5 on the right. My mom did most of them, except for the 5th on the right, i pierced it myself. Ahh..High school days...
6. I am addicted to World of Warcraft & anime's
7. My sister and i never got along well until lately, when we realized we aren't little girls anymore.

Now my turn to tag...Andie, Carolyn, Carol, Rachel, Juls, Dana, Cheryl

After I finished my custom family name design, I started Once Upon A Time by PR. I wasn't really sold on this design at first, but once i saw some1's finish, I knew i had to have it! I started this some nights ago, I can't remember when...All i remembered was how much I had frogged her hair because I am converting her into a brunette. I'm no red head, and never will be! This was very hard to convert as the colors were very scattered, from reds to browns...I guess that's how red hair is when the sunlight hits it. (?) I had frogged her hair for like the 5oo'th time!! Just kidding...About 5, really! First conversion I did the hair came out too light...Nope, doesn't look like mine at all...The second time...It was too brown!! And then there's not enough black...and so on and so forth...I finally decided after all that frogging that her hair color looks so much better than 'all the' before's, It only took me a week and a half to finish that same amount of stitching on her hair alone! She is also going to be tanned...She's going to be me. LOL

I am also converting the prince's shirt to green, hubby's request. He said it can't be him unless it's wearing green. I guess he can't relate unless it wearing his favorite color...Your wish is my command! The fabric is SMF Impressionism. It was also hubby's choice amongs't the stash of fabby's i have. Converting the PR's are a little tricky, it isn't like the Mirabilia's where it follows a certain color combination on the color card. But there is always first time for everthing. I had fun!

Then, on friday my order from SMF arrived, specifically it contained my fabric for Mirabilia's Pixie-Ivy. It's Gitta on belfast. It's yummy!!! I couldn't resist so i set Once Upon A Time aside and started her on Friday night. I'm going to convert her dress colors, I played with her on photoshop and got the colors, I liked. I'm going to then call her "Poison Ivy". As you can see, I also converted her hair... She's a real cutie. This is going to be my second time working on belfast, i had noticed that the belfast always stays kinda soggy in the middle, no matter how much pulling or rolling i do, so I thought of something to keep it drum tight, I got a couple of those binder clips and pulled the sides with it using rubber bands. Gotta be resourceful, there is no LNS or perhaps none in all of california that could sell me those stitching clips on a whim! Yay!

Here is also my last WIP. I swore to myself I will never have more than two. But i guess 2 1/2 WIP is ok, this is quite small, plus it did not need a scroll (because it won't fit on any size). It is my fairy celebration from PR. It was also a frogging horror, because once you miscount you can't tell where without going through it row by row, due to the color, I had frogged her wand about three times, and not only that, I hate the hoops, it's ever so hard to do anything two handed, I usually put it in between my legs so i can stitch 2 handed, but after a while my legs fall asleep. This is the reason why I'm not very enthusiastic about stitching this one, due to the hoop issue. Sorry, but hoops are yuck! But no choice...

p.s. Please let me brighten your day. =)
