Past projects part 1: cross-stitch projects

I started crafting back in mid 2008. I can’t recall the exact month, but it was around that time. After my first cross-stitch project, I was still very wet behind the ears, but up to the challenge of anything new. My next set of projects consisted of making various things to show my apprecation to […]

Yoshi Home Sweet Home Complete!

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 […]

PAX Pox, DSi Cozy, and Cross-stitch Key Chains

I know. I know. I’m a horrible updater. I have been cross-stitching, but I just haven’t updated about it. I’ll do that in another post, but I’ll let you know that I’m making a lot of good progress on it. As for PAX, it was awesome. I was able to hang out with Rym, Scott […]

Yoshi Cross-Stitch Project Week 7

Sorry for the late post, but I was pretty busy over the weekend. Had a few other events going on as well as a new edition to the household. My boyfriend, Jeremy, and I already have two cats, but we decided to adopt another kitten. Say hello to the adorable little Rorschach. As you can […]

My First Cross-Stitch Project

I’m finally getting around to posting previous craft/cross-stitch works that I’ve completed. My first cross-stitch project I worked on was a popular manga character that goes by the name of Yostuba. The manga is called Yotsuba&!, created by Kiyohiko Azuma, known for his very popular creation of Azumanga Daioh. I used one of the more […]

Yoshi Cross-Stitch Project Week 6

Well it’s been one HELL of a week. I do mean that in all seriousness. Washington has reached record highs this week ranging in the upper 90’s to low 100’s. It’s been unbearable. However, that did not keep me from my cross-stitching! So much color! Isn’t it pretty? Sad to say, that’s the last I’ll […]

Yoshi Cross-Stitch Project Week 5

Ugh. This heat is killing me. Quick post. I managed to get a decent amount done even though I was fairly busy this week and actually took a few days off of cross-stitching. It was also my 3 year anniversary with my boyfriend, Jeremy, so I think it’s alright to take a break. I got […]

Yoshi Cross-Stitch Project Week 4

Another week and another posting of my progress. I cross-stitched so much this week that my right middle finger started to get sore and raw from pushing in the needle for when I anchor my floss. I basically push the remaining thread under back stitches so the thread holds in place. When doing that sometimes, […]

Yoshi Cross-Stitch Project Week 3

So another week has passed. Didn’t get as much done this week as I had planned, but I still got a lot done. As you can see, I’ve started doing some of the background light blue hill areas as well as the shading of the tree and branches. I’ve also started working on the grass. […]

Yoshi Cross-Stitch Project Week 1

Well after one full week of stitching, I’ve made some decent progress. The only day I didn’t cross-stitch was on Saturday. I was in Seattle all day long hanging out with Jeremy. We went to the Pacific Science Center to check out their most recent exhibit, Animal Grossology. I was expecting more, but I still […]
