New Craft Obsession

Because I needed a new hobby.... I decided to try my hand at cross stitching. I found a cute free pattern from Heidi at My Paper Crane and gave it a go!

I decided to make the kitty look like our little Boomer who is black and white. I am still not done with him yet, but when I finish him I have to make one of Ms. Babakeenya.

Money was tight for our three year anniversary, so I made this to add to Poot's growing collection of art from me. He has everything I have made him hanging on his side of the bed! Awww...

Our friend Keith loves Batman so I couldn't resist stitching him up a cute Batman and Robin...

As you can tell.... I love it!!! I have a list of patterns I want to do for gifts this year! Yes... I have actually started my handmade Christmas list already! I am determined to not wait until the last minute this year!! Now I just need to start working on that list. Ha!

What craft have you been working on lately? Anything new you have been dying to try??
XOXO

I love cross stitching too and I'm addicted to it. I also decided to do cross stitch gifts for Christmas last year but ended up buying large kits. Try to keep the patterns/kits small to be able to complete all of them by Christmas. Just a suggestion. Cross stitch away!
