Calling in Sick

CT has had a pretty bad cold the past two days, and it’s finally hitting me hard today. I had plans to finish some projects (I always have plans right?) Instead were hanging out on the couch in the bedroom, and trying to do as little as possible.

As usual I have to make SOMETHING, even when I’m sick. So I picked up the My Little Pony cross stitch again to pass the time in between cuddling.

A Calm Week

Yesterday was as calm as the two days before and I LOVED it!

CT was just as excited about Play-Doh the second day as she was the first. She loved the tools we bought her and all the new colors. She figured out halfway through the day that you could mix the colors and make cool caterpillars.

I also finished up a bunch of sculpting, but I forgot to take photos! Of course! I was really happy with two of the finished pieces and I’ve already started the process of making molds. As always, I will document it all and share it here.

CT has really been into the idea of decorating lately. I guess she watches me do it all the time and figures it’s normal. She really wants a purple room with lots of frames on the wall. If it will make her like her room more, why not? We hope to stop by Sherwin Williams this weekend to pick up the purple paint (their having 30% off paint the 5th thru the 8th). Plus I have some plans for storage and seating.

I’ve also been working on some cross stitch pieces to frame. I love to cross stitch. CT really likes the new My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic show, so I bought some patterns off Etsy and have been working a little bit at a time while watching TV. Multi Tasking!!

That’s another thing I’ve been doing. I’m finally catching up on TV shows that we recorded. I’m almost ready for the Fall season!!

DIY Project: Cross-Stitched Ornament

This isn’t a tutorial on how to cross stitch something. This is just a quick and easy, photo heavy, “how I did it”.

I LOVE to cross stitch. It’s very calming to me. I wait until after CT goes to bed and I just cuddle up with a blanket and watch some TV while stitching away.

Lately I’ve been buying all my patterns from Wee Little Stitches. We love nerdy stuff in our house, and they make awesome nerdy patterns. I highly recommend checking out their etsy shop.

the Tardis, pictured above, is from one of their Doctor Who patterns.

If you would like to see how I made this piece into an ornament, please keep reading… Continue reading
