I made this for my brother for Christmas!

The face part is the most complicated cross stitch I've ever done, it's all blended threads and fractional stitches. It's way more detailed than it looks here. Super fun though!


I think I love you! Where did you get that pattern? Not that I would ever get it made, but I could buy it and pretend like I'm going to make it.

I started on a huge (like 2+ foot) Zelda stained glass piece. With school and everything it's been slow going; I have a teeny corner done but I hope to get going again after this week.

I also ordered a subversive cross stitch PDF, the "it's about forking time" one to stitch for my relative who is finally getting treatment for substance abuse. The choice of phrase probably sounds really bad if you don't know me or the relationship that I had with that person. However, given all the craziness of the situation, it's incredibly fitting and hopefully the touch of silliness will be beneficial, and strangely enough, show my support.

That is crazy good! I didn't know cross stitch could be so detailed!

I have a pile of cross stitch stuff that I've done nothing with. Now I want to give it a go!

It's from Steotch on Etsy! The instructions you get are super clear and it's not as scary as it looks at first.

The Zelda stained glass will be awesome, I bet! I've been working on a giant Zelda: A Link to the Past map and it's taking approximately forever. To be fair, I haven't touched it in a few months, but still. I need to find the time to make a bigger dent in it!

I love this! Boyfriend actually yelled this at me the other day when we were arguing about something, I may need to make it for him.

That is hilarious! Your boyfriend knows how to fight properly. He's a keeper.
