Cross stitch!

Hi Kara! 

A couple of weeks ago after privately complaining to myself that I didn’t have a cheap hobby, you suggested I start cross stitching (which suggests you have the ability to read my mind). And it so fun!

I placed an order on Amazon for a shit ton of embroidery yarn and a cross stitching starter kit. This was enough to keep me in cross stitching for quite a while (I’m grossly under exaggerating) and it cost me $32. THATS IT! I’ve spent, in total, less than $40 on this hobby and that is going to last me for a ridiculously long time.  


LOOK AT ALL THAT FLOSS!!! And the thing is, when you cross stitch, you split one of those strands into three sections. I’m honestly set for life.

Here are two projects I’ve made and two I’m currently working on.

Totoro!

Turnip Head!

Haunted Mansion – the hitchhiking ghost are next!

The beginning of a soot sprite for Alison!


I really enjoy working on these and I can’t wait to keep making more! 

And just a reminder everyone – Kara and I will be taking a two week break from this blog because WE’RE LEAVING FOR JAPAN IN 2 DAYS!!! Kara, I’ll see you (on Monday. Physically, I will see you on Monday. In a foreign country. Called Japan. Holy shit. But I’ll see you on the blog) November 7!
