Hi! I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas, if they celebrate it. I went home to my parents’ house in Camas, WA. I had a lovely time and could have spent longer, but I had my cats and real life to get back to!
Here’s the only handmade gift I pulled it together for this year. Well, that’s not totally true, I just finished something else for someone non-family.
I got the pattern from Wee Little Stitches. They have a bunch of cute cross stitch patterns of pop culture figures grouped together.
My Mom is a big Big Bang Theory fan. I don’t know if she necessarily needs a framed picture of them, but it was surprisingly hard for me to find something else to cross stitch onto. I bought regular 14 count cross stitch fabric and then framed it in a frame I found at Goodwill.
It was fun to do a little cross stitch because it has been years. Luckily I still had a crazy amount of embroidery thread from my dorky childhood days. It’s nice because it’s like embroidery by numbers and you don’t really have to be creative at all if following a pattern. I have had a cross stitch design in mind for years, so maybe I should get on it!
I steam pressed the back of the fabric when I was done, but I couldn’t get that fabric crease out. Now it is all I can see and I wish I had tried harder!
I just google image searched “Big Bang Theory cross stitch” and there are a bunch of crazy ones out there.
Have a safe New Year’s! You might see me here before then…
