All of my cross stitching experience. Ever.

On August 2, 2012, my family was driving up to New Hampshire from South Carolina. We were in... oh, Pennsylvania, maybe? And I was bored out of my mind. I considered buying Pokemon White (I already have Pokemon Black) from Gamestop... but then I thought hey, maybe I'll check out the craft section of Walmart. I picked up a beginner cross stitch kit on a whim, and I was hooked.

Pretty soon I was back at Walmart, desperate for more. New Hampshire was hot, and all I wanted to do was sit on the porch and cross stitch. Crazy Northerners, with their lack of air conditioning.

And even once I was home, I couldn't resist some more cross stitching. Battle for Middle Earth? Nah, I'm stitching a strawberry! :D

I still have no idea what I'm going to do with these three projects... Okay, so I lied. I'm considering putting them all in these cute little wooden frames (also from Walmart):
However, I'm not sure they relate well enough for that... You know? To me, they're my first three cross stitches ever, and they'd be in the order in which I stitched them. But to everyone else... it's a turtle, a cupcake, and a strawberry, entirely unrelated to each other.

On to current projects! :D

What happened with that one? Why has so little progress taken two months? Well, reader, I went to college.
Also, yay for free patterns! I super appreciate this wonderful, nerdy pattern. I'm stitching it for my equally wonderful, nerdy boyfriend. :) Shhh, it's a huge secret!

Another Walmart buy! :D I couldn't take all the black anymore, so one evening I opened this kit up and stitched a bit of color. Haven't touched it since though. Soon, my dear, soon...

I love whoever just read this. Leave me a comment, so that I know on whom to shower my love. Have a fabulous, beautiful Saturday! <3


  1. Hi Katie, your stitching is wonderful! How nice that you stopped into Wal-Mart and discovered a new hobby! I'm sure your boyfriend will love the Darth Vader design.

    Thank you for commenting on my blog, too! I would have replied by email to you, but it says noreply-comment.

    Have fun with this great hobby!


    1. Oh, thank you so much!! :)

      You're welcome. :) Oh, I'm afraid I don't know what that means or how to change it. I'm quite new to blogger, as I've only used it briefly for French classes in the past.

      Thanks so much! I think I'm already having almost too much fun, I rather don't want to do my schoolwork as much anymore, haha. :)
