For those of you that know me personally, I’m a Gilmore Girls fan. Amy Sherman-Palladino and Dan Palladino, the show’s creators, are my heroes. The pop culture references, book references, quick wit, and well -timed and brilliantly curated music selections were, and are, near and dear to me. And so, when the opportunity to makeContinue reading “f.o. | mrs. kim cross stitch”
I worked pretty feverishly on this cross stitch back in August. And for some reason, I lost steam. This little chart of different kinds of coffee drinks and the components that make them will eventually be art for my kitchen. Or I’ll gift it off to a friend. Consider this a push to finish thisContinue reading “wip | coffee cross stitch.”
Way back last Spring, I decided to make a cheeky cross stitch for the guest bathroom in my new home. Well, I’ve finally decided to display it right above the toilet. I think it’s a fitting spot. Even bathrooms deserve a little handmade decor.
This little 2 x 3 cross stitch was perfect for a small frame I recently picked up. You can get the pattern, and loads of other adorable mini patterns, here. It now sits on my dresser, where it belongs, really.
I stitched up this hilarious cross stitch pattern for my good friend Mackenzie, in honor of her 31st birthday. She’s a K. West fan and a lover of all juxtaposition; this seemingly antique feeling stitchery and script made for the perfect marriage to a 21st century rap lyric. She loved it. Framed and gifted. Here’sContinue reading “toast.”
Working away on this vegetable sampler to frame for my mum on Mother’s Day. She said she wanted color in her self described “boring” lake house kitchen–with a vintage feel. So what better than a handmade gift that tries to do just that? Here’s to hoping I actually have it finished.
I decided to make this cheeky cross stitch for the guest bathroom in my new home. It’s fun and ridiculous, just the way I like it. I never take myself too seriously, and this is a good example. Subversive style cross stitch is so fun and quick, too. This project took one weekend to complete.Continue reading “bathroom cross stitch.”
I love to go to bed early; its my jam. At night, with little distraction, and plenty of quiet, I can read, knit, or in this case, stitch. Lately, my goal is to get back to long neglected projects and get them finished. This includes reknitting the length of some sleeves on my Stasis PulloverContinue reading “bed stitching.”
This pretty extensive cross stitch pattern of a Yei Bi Chei has been my go to small project since the beginning of August. I’ve completed about half of the design and am loving the results.
Another shot of my cross stitch, in action. I’m nearly done but have had to put it down for deadlines on other projects that are gifts.
It’s been awhile since I completed a cross stitch pattern. I think the last one was the Pee Wee Herman I made for Sean’s 30th Birthday last year, which I don’t believe I ever took photos of either. A few weeks back, one of my students came to me declaring she wanted me to crossContinue reading “stitching.”
When you have a midweek holiday, why not cross stitch something up whilst in bed, but awake, quite early. Now that I’m on school schedule, I tend to rise naturally around 6 a.m. But seeing as we didn’t have work today, I thought it entirely unnecessary to get out of bed. And so I crossContinue reading “gnome, 9.24”
