If you have been following me over on Instagram and Twitter then you know my crafting life has been dedicated to finishing a zillion tags that I'm sending out which can double up as ornaments. I've had a lot of questions and comments about them, so I thought, "Hey, you know, it's probably time for a… Continue reading Tag Along
A few weeks ago, I was contacted by my buddy Kari to see if I'd be interested in making a quilt square for the Pixel Stitch group over on Twitch. (This, despite the fact, that my old computer practically makes it impossible for me to stream on Twitch Creative.) I told her yes -- the… Continue reading It’s Dangerous to Stitch Alone, Take This!
So let's sum up the past few months, shall we? Crafting. Lots of it. I'm going to go through and post everything once the craziness of the holidays calms down (hopefully). But, for now, I want to drop off a few patterns that I know a few of you have asked for. First of all… Continue reading The Holidays Have Consumed You
After working on Rapunzel (and actually making progress!), my brain did what it always does and started demanding me to work on something else. So, while Babe and the girls were shopping for cake supplies, I walked around Jo-Ann, looking for inspiration. There, on an end cap were pre-made boards, ready for nail art --… Continue reading Nailed It
Oh, Navi, what would the Zelda fandom be without you? So, Mollie over at Wild Olive is having a Stitch-Love-Along. I missed round 1, but I was determined to get something done for round two (which goes until the 1st). She said customizing was fine, but I don't think she ever thought that her Glowing Fireflies Jar… Continue reading Hey, listen!
Sometimes on the internet, you can find something so magical, so amazing, so completely fantastic, you're like, "WHOEVER DID THIS IS GENIUS!!!1!!1!" And sometimes, if you're really lucky, they write a tutorial on how you can make the aforementioned magical, amazing, completely fantastic thing yourself. That's what happened when I went over to Our Nerd… Continue reading (DON’T) KEEP IT A SECRET TO EVERYBODY
Honestly, I can't believe I managed to work on this sucker. Things in the house have been, ahem, crazy. Long story short, we have no carpet in our living room. What we asked: Can you help us paint? What she heard: Please, rip out our carpet. pic.twitter.com/tCPYXQ78l0 — Jess (@CraftingGeek) July 15, 2015 I went… Continue reading WIP Wednesday: Week 95,456
You know, these WIP days really do help reassure me that, yes, I'm making progress. (I'm sure it's a feeling most crafters can relate to.) So, last week, I ditched Cap and turned my attention to a certain Hyrulian map. I *think* I'm going to try to finish it around the same time I completed… Continue reading WIP Wednesday: Week 854,958
550 hours. That's how long it took me to finish this enormously huge project (an 18" square) of cross-stitching the overworld map of the Dark World. (It's still less time than I spent on Majora's Mask.) Originally, I bought the chart for my sister and (now) brother-in-law's wedding. But, it needed to be finished by… Continue reading A Link to the (Gaming) Past
Ok, not really. But I did succeed in my 30 for 30 challenge. The goal was to work on one major project for at least 30 minutes for 30 days. For someone like me who bounces from cross-stitch to cross-stitch, it was going to be tough. I'll admit there were times that I wanted to… Continue reading I Rule Hyrule
