It itches!!

I have the crafting itch! It just won't go away! Now that I started up again I will not be able to stop.

I have been working extremely hard this summer, and yet I still don't feel right. Maybe it's just me. maybe it's all the school left? Maybe, I will never really know..

What I do know is that I have a new vintage project I am working on and it might take me a long time to finish.

Why is it that I always feel guilty starting new projects when I still have old ones that are not done yet!

"diiirrrty souff"

Yeah, the dirty south! New Orleans, Louisiana here I come!! well in like 4 months. I have never been to the south of the US. I have been to the following states: California (duh, I live here), Wyoming, Idaho, Washington, Oregon, Nevada, Utah, Montana, Arizona, Minnesota, Michigan, Indiana, Virginia, Maryland, Washington D.C., Hawaii, Illinois, and I think Ohio? So this coming November, I will have a layover in Texas (I count those states) and then spending the weekend in New Orleans for the ASHA Convention.

I am just excited to travel! I go between San Jose and San Diego all the time, but I haven't left the state in a while. I have more cross-stitching ideas and embroidery patterns. I really need to get a project done for my grandpa. I should get on that!

Time to stop procrastninating and get my homework done. Until next time...

Another subversive inspiration!

Alright, so I should be preparing for clinic. Instead, I made this:

I was inspired by the phrase "I fudged it up" and by the movie The Hangover in which Alan states, "I fudged up guys" in reference to accidentally drugging his friends. Whoops!

I just love the Popsicle, I designed the pattern myself!!! Down to the little droplet of melting fudge. Yum.

Now what should I do with it? Too weird a shape for a frame, bookmark maybe?

Homemade Subversive Cross-Stitch

I told you I had a project in the works that might be, well...kinda gross! It makes me giggle every time I look at it. I was inspired by Subversive Cross-stitches blog/flickr account. I love looking at the absurd, rude and creative things that people make into cross-stitch! I had to make one!

Here is it:
Step 1. Find an amusing quote. This is a quote from SouthPark that my boyfriend and his friends say all the time. It never ceases to make me laugh.
Step 2. Design your pattern. Yes, I designed this pattern myself by piecing bits of designs I liked together. Here it is in the beginning stages:

3. Finish your cross-stitch while laughing because you have made something totally ridiculous. At at first glance, it looks pretty, but once you read it's not soo pretty after all! I made the butt design all by myself! :) So proud. HA! HA!
