I don’t even know what to say. I spent a couple of hours on Saturday working on this and a few on Sunday as well. Granted I was catching up on some trashy tv at the same time (love you Mob Wives – team Drita!!) so my progress wasn’t super speedy.
I managed to fill in a lot of holes, but the fact is…I am still on page one of a 16 page pattern (pm me for Brian’s mailing address!). One day this will be done, yo. For now…there’s plenty more on Netflix to keep me company
Some days I am just a little cray-cray…others…lets not go there. Brian accepts all forms of condolence cards, though.
A couple of weeks ago, I had an attack of the super crazy and I thought it would be an AWESOME idea to begin a new craft project. Sure..I don’t have enough in my to-do pile at the moment, may as well add another to the mix. The idea started off simple enough…I came across a site Stitch a photo – Pic 2 Pat
that you could upload your own picture to, and it would transform it into a cross stich pattern free of charge.
What fun! I had a little think and decided that our den needs a little more artwork, so I came up with the following image…
Don’t worry, it’s only going to be 18″W x 24″L when its done. 75 different thread colors? Oh thats nothing…lets make it 100! But how far along am I?
As I said, Brian accepts all forms of condolence cards.
So the monkey is getting older on Wednesday and as my budget doesn’t always extend to fancy gifts i decided that i wanted to try my hand at something a little more home made. I found this one day when i was hunting for random things on the internets and i kept it in the back of my mind for a rainy day/gift idea.
Well this is it….so far I am about 1/3 of the way in to the pattern and i have one more night and a bit to work on it…so it’s probably not going to get finished in time – especially when the original plan involved it being framed before his birthday But i think that’s okay. I know he will love the idea and I can get it done and framed soon enough…and now i can even work on it in front of him instead of waiting for him to not be around.
This may possibly be one of the most fun projects i have worked on with regards to cross stitch. I’m sure its nothing like The Alamo that my mother slaved over…but its feels close enough
I’ll add one more picture before returning to SSP…
The Giz. Always posing for photos but never quite keeping still long enough to have his picture taken like a real model He bought his Dad a book on beer…very thoughtful!
Now i must dash as i have a very sleepy puppy whining about bedtime.
