Time Traveler

Imagine sitting at your desk, wondering what time it is. I mean, sure you could look at your computer clock or grab your phone, but why would you miss a chance to look up and see the Traveler hanging on your wall, waiting to tell you when it is?

That’s right, you wouldn’t.

When I found out that Dave’s (aka @DestinyAuthor) birthday was at the beginning of April, I totally was cool and collected, despite the fact that I already had several crafts that needed to be done by the end of the month.

I knew I wanted to do something Destiny-themed. I could have made him an 8-bit cross-stitch of a Guardian, but I’m sort of a “been there, done that” sort of crafter. (OK, I don’t have the patience to sit and do the same thing over and over which is why I’ll never, ever do a Light World map from A Link to the Past. Waaaaay too close to the Dark World map.)

I remembered seeing a tutorial on a embroidery hoop clock and boom, it clicked. I knew exactly what I was going to make.

A time Traveler.

(OK, so it’s a clock that looks like the Traveler, but time Traveler sounds so much cooler.)

The craft itself was fairly simple. Attaching the clock movements gave me more grief than I thought it would, but luckily I have a Babe on hand at all times to help me keep my sanity.

My fingers and toes are crossed that it made it across country alright. (The USPS almost poked a hole through the Street Figther cross-stitch I sent — and that was less than 100 miles from my place.)

(My bigger hope is that Dave actually knows what it is when he opens the box, LOL.)
