While I haven’t been writing much here lately (life has been busy behind the scenes – nothing noteworthy, just busy and often sleepy), I have been getting my crafty on in numerous ways.
Sharon had a birthday last week, so I cross stitched her this little octopus.
The pattern came from this little etsy shop, the cloth was just 14 count navy aida, floss was 3 strands of a variegated pink.
I keep forgetting that cross stitch takes me longer than embroidery, so I found myself frantically finishing the last few rows last Wednesday before knitting in order to gift it in a timely manner. But I’ve learned at least a little of the lesson here & will hopefully remember this for my next deadline-related cross stitch project.
I love how this turned out – it’s perfectly slouchy and will pull down to cover my ears when it’s cold.
There are more crafty things and such coming soon. :)
