Hello! I hope that today, you guys are ready to see some really pointless crafting, because that is what I have to show off. The other day, I was sitting down and preparing to make something out of perler beads, but didn't know what I was going to do. This led to a lot of staring at a giant pegboard and a mass of unorganized beads, trying to figure out why it was so much harder to decide what to perler bead than it was to pick out something to cross stitch. I then thought that I might as well just fill my board with random beads, because it was just as good as whatever I'd pick (I was not having a very positive day), which then led to me deciding that if I did that, I could probably use it as a weird sheet of plastic canvas.
Once I thought of that, I ran and grabbed an old perler bead project that I'd made and broken to see if I could get a needle through the beads once they'd been melted. It turned out, after I stitched a few pink Xs on a Samurai Shodown character's head, that I could, so I then grabbed a bunch of yellows and off whites, hoping to make my sheet of beads look like a fake sheet of hand-dyed fabric, and spent several hours digging through buckets and putting beads onto the pegboard. That part of it was not very interesting. Later that night, though, I'd gotten the beads ironed and was able to start stitching on it with some craft thread. That was Sunday, and tonight, I finished this!
A week before this, I did another small, but more traditional project, using a pattern from a long defunct Sanrio patterns webpage (from Geocities!), which was run by a designer who went by the user name Lullaby Lambie. I have a lot of her patterns, but decided to stitch Pochacco, mostly because I have no stuff with that character printed on it. I did this with normal embroidery floss on neon blue Aida cloth and framed it in a 4-inch embroidery hoop. That made it way classier.
