So I've been busy trying to get  this cross stitch done for a coworker's retirement. And now I'm finished with it!

I'm in awe. I never EVER finish cross-stitches unless it's like 2 colours and that is just crazy. how many hours approx. did it take?

I'm trying to get into embroidery because it's a bit more freehand. But even still!

Oh, man. I have no idea how many hours it took. I know I'd try to work on it for an hour or two after work for about the last four or five weeks. And, I'd done the part with the lion /months/ before that. 

There were a few days where I spent hours on it. I'd take it to parties. xD

I really should start documenting how long it takes me to do these by hours.

I'm all about that knitting life. Here's a pair of socks I made for myself awhile back.

@mira do you take dreamcatcher commissions?

@astro OMG I'd love to make you one! I won't be reunited with all my craft stuff until October, unfortunately. Christmas present?

Also, love those socks. We should all start some sort of by-mail craft trade.

oh gosh i don’t have the patience for cross stitch!!

i used to crochet and i wasn’t great but i found it easy to pick up... i kind of want to start doing it again.

i did make some jewellery out of polymer clay recently?? i have plans for a set but I haven’t had time to do it with the move. but ya my first attempts came out well!

and I’ve been trying to teach myself to brush letter which has been... interesting...

THAT LOOKS SO GOOD, @bigwig! I need to get back into practicing calligraphy. I'm inspired now!

Aw! Sara, that's so cute! 

I kinda have an itch to stitch some more on some WIPs, but also I want to play more Breath of the Wild. I really wish I had four arms at the moment.
