Moment of Triumph

 Back when I decided to make this Destiny cross-stitch, I had no idea just A.) how long it would take and B.) how difficult working with a single color is. (I mean, it’s like yaaaaawn.) That being said, this is my largest Destiny cross-stitch to date, overthrowing the Cross-Stitch of Doom that started the tripContinue reading “Moment of Triumph”

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”

The Holidays Have Consumed You

So let’s sum up the past few months, shall we? Crafting. Lots of it. I’m going to go through and post everything once the craziness of the holidays calms down (hopefully). But, for now, I want to drop off a few patterns that I know a few of you have asked for. First of allContinue reading “The Holidays Have Consumed You”

Hammer Time

It’s funny how things happen, isn’t it? What started out as a last minute change for TheLegendBlue’s birthday gift, turned into me getting my 15 minutes of viral fame. Um, did @Bungie just tweet my cross-stitch? — Jess (@CraftingGeek) October 7, 2015 There really is no backstory to the cross-stitch — I decided that I’d ratherContinue reading “Hammer Time”

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”

Lucky Rabbit’s Foot, er, Emblem

I’ll admit. I’m totally stalling out when it’s coming to the Lorule project. I think it’s the sheer amount of colors and the fact that, well, it doesn’t look like much of anything yet. I’m not too worried yet. There were a lot of times with the Dark World map that I wanted to doContinue reading “Lucky Rabbit’s Foot, er, Emblem”
