Today’s craft is something that I have never done and would not have attempted to do without assistance. My fiance, Matt, has been weaving since college. He once turned his dorm bed into a giant loom just for the sake of seeing if he could do it. (He did. He made a massive scarf.) Matt… Continue reading Woven Wall Decor
I recently started branching out in terms of the mediums I cross stitched on. For Christmas, I made a key chain for a good friend of mine. I used plastic canvas for the first time. I ended up having to make the dang thing over again because I cut the plastic too close and the… Continue reading Cross Stitch Key Chains
When I didn’t want to play around with watercolor but I still wanted to be craftily productive, I broke out this kit that I’ve had for a few months now. Every time I visit any place that sells cross stitch materials, I check the cross stitch kits for any that are on clearance. Found this… Continue reading Not All Who Wander Kit
As I’m finishing up the last of my Christmas crafting, I figured this would be the best post to end this quasi-hiatus with. I originally started learning how to cross stitch for a Christmas gift, so it’s only fitting. Next week I’ll be back with regular, current posts. Thank you for your patience and I… Continue reading My First Cross Stitch
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
For the month of November, I’m participating in a sort of sister project to NaNoWriMo – NoBoPro (aka the Notebook Project). The goal is to fill a notebook cover to cover in 30 days. I bought a three-pack of Moleskine soft cover notebooks I found on sale at Target. I browsed Pinterest for ideas of… Continue reading Embroidered Notebooks
I put some more hours in to this custom stitch over the weekend and got it finished for work again on Monday. Somewhere along the line I must have miscounted a stitch because one part didn’t match up to the pattern I made, but everything still seemed to fit just fine. I’m chalking it up… Continue reading Haiti Quote Custom Stitch: Finished!
Short post today – I’m busy packing for a cruise I’m going on next week! I finally finished the Pentatonix cross stitch I’ve been working on for what feels like ages. I wasn’t able to deliver the finished project myself – my coworker brought it to the new owner since she was meeting her yet… Continue reading Pentatonix: Finished!
I took a short break from the Pentatonix cross stitch I’ve been working on to knock out another stitch for charity The company I work for works closely with the local chapter of United Way. Every year there’s a big, two-week campaign in September to raise money. There’s a gift basket silent auction, a guess-the-number-of-candy-in-the-jar… Continue reading Cubicle Sweet Cubicle
