I am waiting on yarn and feel like I'm dying.  My poor, poor idle hands.  I guess I'll have to cross stitch again (yep, my Geisha is STILL unfinished!).

Unfortunately, I'm not sure just how much crafting is going to be done because Dark Souls III came out which means I'll be playing that instead.  This is mostly just a check-in.

Off to play DS3!!!  Happy stitching (and gaming!), everyone!

Finished the Bold Blues!

I finished my Bold Blues blanket!  It's a lapghan, so it's only about up to my waist at it's tallest point.  Sorry, my measuring tape is still packed in a box somewhere.

Before sewing.

All finished!  Don't mind my toes...

All in all a pretty fun project.  I would say though that I'm terrible at sewing, so maybe next time I'll just zipper join everything.  It'll lay flat and I won't have to sew...which I have no faith in my blanket holding up.

I am working on a pattern right now for a coffee sleeve.  You know, those paper things that you put around your coffee at a Starbucks?  Yeah, it's one of those.  Here's what I have so far, it's really a "rough draft" because I've never written a pattern before, so I'm just going to share a picture for now.

This is a Sailor Neptune coffee cozy.  I worked it in continuous rounds rather than slip stitching and it's very apparent, so...I guess I won't be doing that next time?  The continuous rounds makes it look really sloppy in my opinion.  I will probably go up a hook size or add a couple stitches around because it was a little bit too snug.  Definitely going to try again soon, but I am working on something else right now.

Finally, I have to share because I took this picture on Easter and it makes me laugh every time I see it because my dog has the cutest face!

She's the sweetest, kindest, loving dog I've ever known.  Her name is Mia and she is a fully rehabilitated dog now.  Took long enough, but she is so worth it.

Anyway, enough gushing about my Mia Dumb Face.  Happy stitching, everyone!
