Loves Liza Minnelli, Dudley Moore, The Beatles, The Who, The Monkees, Judy Garland, Frank Sinatra, Gene Kelly, Fred Astaire, Dean Martin, etc. Definitely born in the wrong era.

29 year old girl from the east bay area in California (read as: nowhere on the map) and also loves all things craft-wise. Is an avid cross-stitcher, knitter, crocheter, photographer, writer, loves drawing, and generally anything that involves making something pretty.

Also loves nostalgia. Both from the 60's/70's, from her own childhood in the 80's/90's, and some even older stuff. You've been warned.

My Crochet Tutorials

 

Here’s the first two days’ progress on the new, mystery cross stitch project. (You can’t even come close to telling what it is yet; it’s just background gradient so far still. Don’t waste your time guessing yet. XD)

So, the stats:

Day One:
132 stitches
Total: 132/46575 completed
46443 to go…

Day Two:
190 stitches
Total: 322/46575 completed
46253 to go…

New supplies for a new project…hmmm, what could it be? ;) The only hint is it’s gonna be another photo quality one like my Liza one, but much bigger and will probably take at *least* six months to complete. (Realistically, this is probably a gross understatement.)

Finished up my first lyric cross stitch tonight :) Still needs to be framed (and it’ll be centered when it is), and the lettering is purple in case you can’t tell that part, but I’m proud anyway. :)

Salut tout le monde ! Ça faisait un certain temps que je n’avais rien posté, à cause du boulot de dingue que j’avais. Mais voilà ce sur quoi j’ai réussi à travailler un coup de temps en temps. L’idée m’est venue d’un coup quand j’ai trouvé ces cadres à un marché aux puces. Tadaaa !
(Et oui, ces bras poilus sont à moi.)
"Boo house", un panneau de 17 x 12 cm et quatre autres de 7 x 7 cm.


Hello there ! It had been a while, with all the crazy work I had going on. But here is the thing I had been working on now and then. The idea struck me at the very moment I found these awesome frames at a flea market. Tadaaa ! 
(And yes, these hairy arms are mine.)
