Yes, another Destiny craft. Really, at this point, no one should be surprised. If you have played Destiny, you have seen this symbol at least once. If you play like me, then you've seen this symbol A LOT. But that's ok because it looks pretty awesome and when I was asked to make a project… Continue reading The Craftiness Has Consumed You
Or, it will be.

The supplies: 4" hoop 14 count aida cloth Any color (I picked black, obviously)… Continue reading Sorry, but this craft is Taken
I am a gamer. I love video games. I love the creativity behind games, I love the skill it takes to play games, I love the indescribable satisfaction one gets when they finally beat that level that they thought was impossible, I love them all. Admittedly, I play less games than I use to. I'm a… Continue reading X(box) Marks the Spot
So, back in January, my friend Rachel made the off-handed comment about how the Ant-Man promo poster would be a really simple project to tackle. @K_ThRyce @CraftingGeek ant man cross stitch would be the easiest cross stitch in the world pic.twitter.com/oRn1Gr0ZbC — Rachel Harland (@rahcek) January 18, 2015 It sort of stuck in my mind,… Continue reading A Highly Ant-icipated Cross-Stitch
Oh, blog post titles, you amuse me greatly. So, after Wednesday's episode, I figured it was time for Roy to get his own cross-stitch sprite. And voila! The fastest turnaround ever (especially for me). Doesn't he look awesome with his fellow Team Arrow sprites? I combined two strands of 3685 and one of 150, but… Continue reading Add This to Your Crafting Arsenal
Remember when I made my Princess Peach cross-stitch pattern last year and said if someone wanted me to make a Princess Daisy chart I would? Well, that time has come, my friends! (Seriously, thank you, Jenny. I have wanted a reason to make this pattern for a while.) I haven't had time to make it… Continue reading Sorry, Luigi, but your princess is in another cross-stitch
So earlier in February, my nephew called me and asked if I would make him a cross-stitch. I sounded cool and collected ("Oh, sure, no big deal"), but inside I was like this: So, he sent me the file of what he wanted to have stitched. Now I'll admit, I don't listen to Radiohead, (I swear… Continue reading No (Crafting) Surprises
For her birthday, the youngest asked me to cross-stitch her a Kirby and you knew I had to do it! I wanted to do something other than the traditional little Kirby so I found a wallpaper and decided to make a chart from it. Since I only had a week (and I value my time) I… Continue reading Kirby’s Epic Cross-Stich
So, Babe did a good thing and took us to the movies this weekend (I'm not the world's biggest movie fan -- you can't cross-stitch in the middle of the theatre, LOL) to see Big Hero 6. I laughed (I'll never look at a fist bump the same way again), I teared up (Curse Disney… Continue reading Hello. I am Jess, your personal crafting companion.
Sometimes I think the best part of writing a blog is coming up with the titles. So, this week's chart is the progression of our favorite little green dinosaur, Yoshi. I actually had a request to post the chart I used in the water soluble canvas vid a couple (few?) weeks ago, but I wanted… Continue reading Oh Yo-Shi Didn’t!
