About 30 seconds into the video I was searching my basket for blue aida and color-matching embroidery floss. Five days of nothing but work and stitching later; I bring you the finished project, and my first ever completed cross stitch sampler.
Nyan Cat Sampler. My tribute to the internet.
The sampler isn't perfect. I probably overdid it on the sparkles and stars, and could have placed my Order & Chaos signature elsewhere and planned it to fit easily within a spare frame I have but it is my first ever design and I was working without a pattern. I really don't think it turned out half bad though. I had a bit of help from Jennifer's Free Cross Stitch Pattern Generator and used the cross stitchified Arial font from http://www.subversivecrossstitch.com/. Eventually I will be selling this piece in our Etsy shop.
Now that that is out of the way, I can focus on other cross stitch projects I've been neglecting like the large number of samplers I'll be making as gifts for friends and the few commissions I have, not to mention more cross stitch (and non) merch for the shop.
In other news, today is a very special day. IT IS EARTH DAY! Yey!!! Everyone go hug a tree and bitch at someone for littering and other Earth-friendly crap! Seriously, though; this is one of my favorite days of the year.
Oh, and it is also my birthday. As of 42 minutes ago I am officially 23 years old. I guess that means it is time for me to grow up and stop spending my time looking up stupid stuff on the internet. Yeah, that's so gonna happen. XD
Well, I'm off to deal with the mass amounts of texts and Facebook comments I am getting. Toodles!
