Do You want to stitch a snow globe?

Looking for a quick, easy project to make during this busy time of year? Of course you are! This snow globe is a simple and inexpensive (yay!) project to make. You’ll need your finished project, clear cellophane wrap, a hoop that will fit your project, fake snow, and some glue and scissors (not shown). You’llContinue reading “Do You want to stitch a snow globe?”

You have not failed this cross-stitch

I’ll admit I imagined Stephen Amell saying that, oh, a million or so times while I was working on this sucker. (It’s the little things, ok?) So, actually this cross-stitch came to be because A.) Babe loves the show and B.) after this from Xbox, how could I not tackle (another) Arrow cross-stitch? So whenContinue reading “You have not failed this cross-stitch”

That Craft That Came From the Moon

Or rather, crafts. The Destiny beta came and went. I surprised myself and Babe by actually playing it myself rather than sticking to the vicarious gamer role that I embrace with pride. I was able to play with my sister from another mister and prove that I really have no skills as a FPS player. (I keptContinue reading “That Craft That Came From the Moon”

State of the (Crafting) Union Address

The State of the Union is good, thanks to Mollie over at Wild Olive. For those of you who don’t know, Mollie is about ready to start the 50 States Stitching Club. It runs for 50 weeks (one for each state), so get ready for a year of USA awesomeness. (I’m eager to see whatContinue reading “State of the (Crafting) Union Address”

Halo: CE (Crafting Evolved)

In case you didn’t know, my gamer heart belongs to a certain Spartan who has an unnatural amount of luck so when I decided that I was going to make this craft for Chance over at Destiny Dispatch, I was a happy chick. It also allowed for me to try a new product –water solubleContinue reading “Halo: CE (Crafting Evolved)”

To Cap It All Off

In case anyone is unaware, I might have just a little, tiny comic crush on Captain America. So, a couple of weeks ago, when Babe and I went shopping over at Kohl’s and found this shirt of awesomeness, I knew that I wanted to do something with it. (Hint: It had to do with little x’s.)Continue reading “To Cap It All Off”

Whoever wields this pattern, if he be worthy…

Shall have a cute, 8-bit finished cross-stitch of Thor. My oldest came up to me and wanted me to make her a little pattern of Thor for her to cross-stitch. (Excuse me a moment while I shed a Crafting Mama tear that my young one wants to cross-stitch.) I went online and looked for ThorContinue reading “Whoever wields this pattern, if he be worthy…”

Clowning Around

So, back in October I started working on a couple of Mario cross-stitching charts. That was when I foolishly thought that I would have the Dark World done and the Halo: CEA cover almost finished within the first half of the year. And while I haven’t given up on making a Mario sampler, I haveContinue reading “Clowning Around”
