Taking some time to get a little crafty

Cross Stitch

Somewhere along the way I decided that I wanted to pick up cross stitch again. It’s been a long time, and I love doing it, it’s just very time consuming so don’t do it often. Right now though I’m on a mental overload and I need to displace my energy. So, I went ahead and ordered some patterns (only) from Etsy and will be heading to the store hopefully tomorrow to get supplies. In the mean time I drew up a pattern for the one thing I really want to make since I feel like it should be relatively easy pattern to create. Here’s what I ended up with;

I actually don’t think it’s that bad! I can’t take all the credit though. My husband who is an avid Doctor Who fan (me too, mainly the latest, 3 renditions of the Dr), helped me plot out size and ‘fixed’ the roof. Can’t wait to get started on it. …and for those not sure what it is, it’s a Tardis.

Coffee Cup

Spent some time working on a new project today. I have a sudden interest in crocheting amigurumi, which lead to the purchase of a coffee/tea cup pattern. I picked this really pretty pink color that I love and haven’t had a chance to use yet.

I was very excited to get started on the pattern and got this far at work.

Then I came home and wrapped up. This is my final product and I hate it! Ugh. Well all I can say is practice, practice practice.
