music videos

Well I decided I liked making the purr rawrs video and will eventually make more vids. I think I'd eventually like to make the Prayer of St Francis again, just so I can use that Sarah McLaughlin song. Yeah I'm crazy like that. It's not like I don't have lots to want to stitch already. lol

Here's a list of the projects and the songs:
ones I can do now: (just not sure of the music)
children's noah's ark
more realistic noah's ark

The ones I want to do and the music:
Tannith: that oboe piece on the 25 one hit classical wonders cd
T&C/Rendezvous: Lifehouse's Everything
T&C/Aveyond (yeah another one): ??? I'm not sure *
Corsira (Ice Wind 1): ??? I'm not sure *
Prayer of St.Francis: self-explanitory, I think
Legend (which I have as a wip): I don't remember the name, but it's on that same one as the Tannith one
Ishtar: I think maybe Sting's Desert Rose
Harry Potter (yeah I found a chart on eBay): the Roanoke Valley Community Band's HP&POA
Vampire Sisters: Transylvanian Concubine (BTVS)
Millenium (Teresa Wentzler): final battle music from Buffy the vampire slayer
From the Ashes/phoenix: Rascall Flatt's Feels like today
Fire Angel: idk but maybe that Potomac Sunrise one? it sort of sounds like HP & pirates of the carrabean, idk tho
Moth Queen: Evanescence;s Bring Me to Life
flower fairies - idk
Queen of Hearts: Him's Wicked Game

that's a lot of stitching

* I'm not sure which one it is, but either Aveyond or Corsira is going to be getting the Greensleeves from the Roanoke Valley Community Band cd - it's very pretty

update I suppose

This is the latest of the geishas - I have a bit more to go on the umbrella. I would really like to be able to get them done so that I can go onto other projects. Namely, Iris, the fairy row for Stefy's baby Kadence (ok I have until October to get that one done), and of course the Tannith HAED. Of course the one I would really like to fast forward to where it is all finished stitching is that Rendezvous one - the Tannith/Corsair one. :) Of course I'd like a lot more of them done too . . . oh well . . .

I also put together the Purr-rawr pics into a movie. Here it is for ease of finding.

geisha update

Here are the latest pics of my geishas.

I figured out how my "muvie maker" that came with my computer works. I decided to fart around with the purr-rawrs I'll post a link on YouTube if I figure out how to upload it. One step at a time, one step at a time.

Ok here's an update

Quick update: I've been working on the geisha's and have gotten the head of the standing one done, tho I haven't gotten a pic of it. The others are the school and the countryside church of the plastic canvas musical village I started years ago.

I wanted to start Iris (the one I picked of the pixies to do next, Fern will be her buddy) on 6-1-09 since it was after Relay and also the beginning of the month. But it just didn't feel right, so I didn't. I only have the fan, the umbrella, and the wisteria of the cross stitches and also the backstitching left. I'll have to get some more black, since I decided to do 3 strands for better coverage. Oh well. "Floss is cheap and I know where to get more" - I think that was something I read in one of my ccs magazines. So once I get the geishas done I'll start on Iris. I really want to get to the Tannith one, but I know that's going to be quite a commitment. I got my laptop and I've been getting to know it. (I haven't figured out a name for it yet - the other one was named "Carritas" from Angel.) But one of the features is that I can make movies on it. Granted it wouldn't be anything like a Hollywood movie by any means, but I think it'd be really neat to take a bunch of pics of a HAED and put it to music so you can see the progression of how it grows over the fabric. I had seen one on YouTube of where someone had it for the water lilies feng shui pic. It was really neat.
