My First Cross Stitch Pattern

This is another repost from my first (failed) blog while I attempt to make it through this week without flipping every table I see. (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻) This week’s Pinterest Project didn’t really come directly from Pinterest, but rather was inspired by an image I found while browsing Pinterest. I am a cross stitcher.  I picked up… Continue reading My First Cross Stitch Pattern

Haiti Quote Custom Stitch: Finished!

I put some more hours in to this custom stitch over the weekend and got it finished for work again on Monday.

WIP: Pentatonix Custom Stitch (2!)

I’m still stitching along on this one.  I haven’t been as diligent as I probably should be with my time.  I’ve started down the slippery slope of looking at all the projects I’ve started or committed myself to and freezing in anxiety. But!  If I really want to make cross stitch into my full time… Continue reading WIP: Pentatonix Custom Stitch (2!)
