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…”

Guardians of the (8-bit) Galaxy

So, in my latest attempt to stall from the Dark World cross-stitch (which will get finished some day, I promise), I decided to tackle yet another Destiny project. Absolutely shocking, I know! A couple of weeks ago, @cgbarrett over on Twitter posted a picture of the Guardians in 8-bit form. And we all know howContinue reading “Guardians of the (8-bit) Galaxy”

*enter clever title here*

I wanted to come up with some clever title for this latest project I finished, but my mind is not quick with the wit today. Alas. Anyway, I come with pictures (and a mild story of woe) from my latest project. It wasn’t the cross-stitch of doom, but it wasn’t necessarily my easiest project either,Continue reading “*enter clever title here*”

Ice Cream (with 100% less calories!)

So, I’ve been avoiding Hyrule as much as Link avoids those ReDeads in Ocarina of Time. It’s the clouds — I think I estimated that I have to stitch 1,500 squares of one color which is BOOOOORING, but I’m sort of at a point where I have to do them because I need to getContinue reading “Ice Cream (with 100% less calories!)”

All in a year’s work…

Looking back, I can say that this has been my most productive year cross-stitching/crafting ever. In fact, I’m sure I couldn’t list off all the projects that I finished if I tried. (Like most crafters I know, I tend to give away the things that I make.) But, I do have my favorites. So hereContinue reading “All in a year’s work…”

I love cross-stitching.

However, this latest project I finished was like the troubled child that you love, but all they want to do is spite you and make you cry. (Don’t want to read a bunch of complaining? Go ahead and watch the vid of the cross-stitch’s progress.) Oh Guardians, why do you hate me? The original planContinue reading “I love cross-stitching.”
