Because I can't be doing with just one craft project at once...  
So I wanted to learn how to cross stitch. Of course I haven't started with anything simple (not my style).

I've got this far:

I've still got a LONG way to go. Started this on xmas day and I've just got far enough to be able to show something. It's a beautiful picture though so I'm sure I'll get it finished so day. In between making two rugs and very bits of jewellery.

Oh and now I have the bright ideas of making a plushie - I'll post the results if it ends up half decent.

In the meantime I'm going to continue to craft and watch some Black Books (all kharma2815 's fault)

It's your own fault for tying me down and forcing me to watch Tinselworm on pain of tickling.

Or something.

That's what you've STARTED with??!??!!

Wow! It's looking good there. Mind you, the fact that you bead puts you in good practice for all things crafty - the patience needed, plus the counting....

You're getting through it at a good rate. It's just over a month's work - so that's impressive. Just wait until you put all the back stitch in - then you'll be amazed how much the art work pops.

Ooh, that's so pretty! I never have the patience to do scenes that big - I tend to either do patterns so that I can do mindless blocks of colour, or just little pictures.

That's really pretty! Keep up the good work. I would never have the patience for that.

So fab to see you at the weekend!!! *glomp*

That's gorgeous! I've got to x-stitch projects going on right now, a small one and a much larger one that I've been working on for going on 2 years now.

Oh dear, you're as bad as me for starting stuff all the time.
