Yes. I know. To anyone who actually still reads this, I have no excuses. Keeping up with a blog can be a chore. I never committed myself to update regularly. I’m a casual poster, so let’s leave it that.
Anyways, I finally finished Home Sweet Home Yoshi at end of December last year. I still need to frame it, but it doesn’t perfectly fit in the pre-cut mat I have, so I will need to add a few more columns at the ends. I could take it in to get professionally framed, but I really don’t feel like dropping the money on that.
But here it is. My biggest cross-stitch project I’ve ever done to date.
I am very happy with the results. After 6 months of sewing, it is complete. Mind you, I did take about 6 weeks off due to being sick and other things.
I don’t think I will take on another project as large. If anything, I will still cross-stitch, but try new things with it. Currently, I am working on a cross-stitch pot holder for a friend. I’m making it all from scratch. It will be awesome.
I would post the pattern, but my hard drive decided to die on me and I lost all my cross-stitch patterns. It makes me very sad. I will try to recover the files, but it’s currently not on my budget.
Also, I will be taking up a new craft: knitting & crochet. I really want to try to make scarves and Amigurumi. I will be learning from a friend and various online tutorials. So here’s to a new hobby to take on, and take up all my time!
For those interested in the pattern, my hard drive died on me, but I was able to salvage a colored image file along with the legend. Just a warning, the image file is quite large, so to print it out it will take up a few pages.
