So here's what I was doing in my moments of coherency.
I learned to cross stitch one stormy day while sick in my teens. It was something productive to do while I sat on the couch watching M*A*S*H*, plus it was cheaper than my Yu-Gi-Oh! cards so it worked out for everyone. I fell out of the art in my early 20's since, as much as I love flowers and little birds, I just didn't want to keep making them over and over again. I hesitate to classify something as "girly", but it really doesn't help when a decent dragon pattern cost over $200, and everything for a decent price looks like it came out of an old ladies living room.
Then came Pinterest.
I won't go on again about one of my favorite websites, but needless to say I discovered an entire community of people who had taken cross stitch to a whole new place-geek cross stitch.
Since then I relearned my old art and started making these:
|Black Mage of Final Fantasy/8 Bit Theater|
|Bowser from Mario 3. I bet he's easier to beat when he's made out of thread.|
|Calvin and Hobbs-AWWWWW!!!|
|Gir-he likes tacos|
|Of course I've got to make a Harley Quinn.|
|Mew was harder to choose colors for. I like how he turned out though.|
|Stitch took forever just because of all that stupid blue.|
|This was a birthday gift for my mom- a little baby zombie! He'll warm your heart before he eats it!|
|I couldn't pass up Raven.|
