I know I know, I just did this not too long ago – but it’s finals week and I haven’t had much time to blog. So here’s round up #2! Because if you can believe it, I’ve discovered even MORE vloggers I love. Adele McNaughton Emily C Megan Wright Ms. OhSewCrafty Trisha @ Three Owl… Continue reading My Favorite Flosstubers: Round Two
This is the fastest I have gone from new start to FO! It took me less than a month of lazy stitching in between other projects to finish it up. It was definitely a nice break from my Shallan, but admittedly it was a bit of stitchy procrastination. I was avoiding my Shallan, my mom’s… Continue reading FFO Friday #6: Get Your S#!t Together
Liebster Award: Online recognition from fellow bloggers for fun new blogs! I’d never heard of the Liebster Award, but I love it already! Apparently it’s a nice little shout out to growing blogs, sharing them with people that might not know about them and saying a little bit about why you spend your time reading… Continue reading Liebster Award
So yeah, I started this one month ago on February 1st as a way to motivate me on my Shallan project (which has been working!). I’m enjoying blogging a lot more than I thought I would, I thought it would be a lot of work and I’d just get bored.
The amazing and mind boggling thing is that, at the time of writing this, on the 7 blog posts I have made so far I already have 1,670 views!!!!! That has wildly exceeded the kind of attention I had expected to get.
So I mostly just wanted to say thanks and you guys are awesome and I’m glad you’re interested (: This blog is my new favorite distraction from doing my homework (and it’s almost finals week).

Like I mentioned before, my Shallan project is full of firsts for me in the world of cross stitch. Before this project, I didn’t use any sort of hoop or frame to hold my project, I did it all in-hand. With something as small as 28 count, and working with waste knots (for the first… Continue reading Making a Lap Stand

So I’m making this blog for reasons, I guess. To talk about my cat because I’m obsessed with him. To see a collection of my stitchy progress as motivation. Sometimes a sea of little stitches can get overwhelming and it’s hard to remember you started it all with a blank canvas and one stitch at a time.
I thought maybe I’d use this as a way to share my progress with my family without flooding my facebook with pictures of cross stitch, but then I realized half my WIPs are gifts so PLEASE DON’T LOOK, GO BACK TO FACEBOOK! Or pretend to be surprised when I give it to you.
I also wanted to use this to share with other cross stitchers online cuz they can be pretty awesome and fun.
Mostly though, I just want a personal journal of progress. I think it might be fun and I’m too old to figure out how to instagram or twitter. Can I still get a livejournal?
