A Little Something New

So, I may have reinvested in a new hobby.

I may have gone down a click-spiral on reddit and ended up on the cross-stitching subreddit. I then may have looked at several pattern websites (including Etsy) and I may have proceeded on down to the craft store and spent some money.

In the last week, I have been working on these three projects. To be fair, the Winnie the Pooh one is a kit I bought years ago. I don’t know exactly when, but I know that I had it when I was living at my mom’s house because I was concerned about the needle popping through the plastic bag during my first ever move. (Spoiler: it didn’t.) I moved out of my mom’s house . . . five years ago, now? I’d guess I’ve had it closer to seven years, because I think this is the kit I bought when Amanda and Virginia taught me how to put on makeup and then took me to the cross-stitch store in ‘Tonka. Like you do. The fabric is dirty and wrinkled and some of the early stitches are really uneven and kind of sad looking.

But, in general, I’m happy with it. No idea what I’ll do with it once it’s done. Maybe I’ll save it until one of my friends (or me, I guess) have a kid and it’s a normal nursery-type gift.

My first ever completed project, though, is this wee little Nightmare Before Christmas picture of Jack and Sally.

This is my first attempt at backstitching, and I think I did a pretty good job!

I’m also working on one that we’ll put up in our house in a couple of months:

(Woah that’s a little out of focus. You get the idea.)

It’s gonna be one of them “subversive cross stitch” projects and I am so excited for it you guys.

I decided to finish up a couple of smaller projects before moving on to anything major . . . and I do have some major project plans. You’ll just have to wait and see!
