PotD #81: I Got Bored – So I Cross Stitched

Over the past few weeks in lock down I’ve gotten bored while working from home. There’s less calls to the help desk I work on because people aren’t working due to the lock down.

So, I decided to go back to doing Cross Stitch. I haven’t done a Cross Stitch project in just over a year. The last one I completed was a Rainbow Deer, captioned Oh Deer, I’m Queer.

But I had a few kits available to me, as well as plenty of fabric to work with. I asked Aimo which pattern I should start with, they decided to go with the Patchwork Elephant. But I also decided to do the Fox design and the Individu-Owl pun design. Here’s the final results:

I found out that my favourite dress had a rip in the lace, so I decided to make cushions out of the very soft fabric of the skirt. One for my partner, Skylar, and one for Aimo. Here’s how they turned out:

A Blue scale panda for Skylar
A Genderqueer themed Spider for Aimo

With how much I’ve been doing, and how many people have requested cushions… I decided to buy some rainbow space fabric to make some super cool stuff with! As soon as it’s here, I’ll get to work making something with it and give you an update!

But until next time, Stay Safe!
