Creating a Division (cross-stitch)

Lately, the burnout has been real. The Light World seems never-ending and the commission piece I’m working on is a large project, so you know that my brain was scrambling to come up with something else to do. Cue this project. I’ve been wanting to make this for several months, but I wanted a smallerContinue reading “Creating a Division (cross-stitch)”

It’s Dangerous to Stitch Alone, Take This!

A few weeks ago, I was contacted by my buddy Kari to see if I’d be interested in making a quilt square for the Pixel Stitch group over on Twitch. (This, despite the fact, that my old computer practically makes it impossible for me to stream on Twitch Creative.) I told her yes — theContinue reading “It’s Dangerous to Stitch Alone, Take This!”

Practicing those knife skills

Another month, another Destiny craft. I’ve been wanting to make something for Cozmo for a while now and to avoid the inevitable burnout of the Light World, I decided to take a weekend to work on this sucker. I was SO tempted to stitch it with glow in the dark thread, but I didn’t haveContinue reading “Practicing those knife skills”

Like taking (Crimson) candy from a baby

  Another day, another Destiny craft. Really, it’s not my fault that Bungie makes things that call to my cross-stitching soul. But, if you want to be subtly geeky on Valentine’s Day, this pattern works because to the average person, it’ll look like a heart with a design on it. To the Destiny playing person,Continue reading “Like taking (Crimson) candy from a baby”

Oh, a Stitcher’s Life is a life for me

I have a jacket that I love more than any other article of clothing I own (which, with the amount of geeky clothes I own, is saying something). Unfortunately for me, its life is slowly coming to an end. The reason why I love this jacket so much is because of this graphic right here.Continue reading “Oh, a Stitcher’s Life is a life for me”

The Craftiness Has Consumed You

Yes, another Destiny craft. Really, at this point, no one should be surprised. If you have played Destiny, you have seen this symbol at least once. If you play like me, then you’ve seen this symbol A LOT. But that’s ok because it looks pretty awesome and when I was asked to make a projectContinue reading “The Craftiness Has Consumed You”

Sorry, but this craft is Taken

Or, it will be. I’m doing a giveaway over on Twitter, but for those of you who don’t want to wait to see if the odds are in your favor, you can make this symbol from Destiny’s The Taken King yourself. The supplies: 4″ hoop 14 count aida cloth Any color (I picked black, obviously)Continue reading “Sorry, but this craft is Taken”

A Highly Ant-icipated Cross-Stitch

So, back in January, my friend Rachel made the off-handed comment about how the Ant-Man promo poster would be a really simple project to tackle. @K_ThRyce @CraftingGeek ant man cross stitch would be the easiest cross stitch in the world pic.twitter.com/oRn1Gr0ZbC — Rachel Harland (@rahcek) January 18, 2015 It sort of stuck in my mind,Continue reading “A Highly Ant-icipated Cross-Stitch”
