My little friend

At night I’ve been trying to do something to keep my mind creative but not on work. I have a tendancy to ramble on and on in my own brain about this and that so to distract myself I took back up embroidery. No pressure, just a do while winding down sorta thing.

I may have to start doing ones that are a little more complex as this one only took me 2 nights of Hell’s Kitchen and Master Chef. His big pieces are felt and the rest is embroidered on by hand.

I’m not sure where the idea came from but there’s something fun about a monster with a heart balloon and buck teeth 🙂 I did all the little stitches to try and give him some lumpy texture. Not sure if he’s furry or just kinda bumpy though. He’s now up on the wall with the other hoops in my studio/office.

If I keep this up I’m either going to have to pick up a new at night hobby or start selling them off as it could quickly become out of hand. I’ve already got a bird started too lol. What do you do to unwind and take your mind off of things? I might need another suggestion or two 🙂

    Oh my gosh, Kristy, I LOVE this! That monster is sooo cute with the buck teeth. You make me want to make one just like that. 🙂

  • Marilyn says:

    These are so cute, and I love the monsters. It’s nice to still be creative outside of your “creative work” – that’s why I wanted to learn knitting. 🙂

  • Melissa says:

    Oh my these are adorable. I like to read in my spare time – that’s if I’m not crafting first…I go through depressions though with books sometimes – I LOVE a good series – and I just finished the Hunger Games – so GOOD and then I was so sad to see it end! LOL

    • Kristy says:

      I love a good series! I read fantasy books, bigger, longer, the better! I’ll have to look the Hunger Games up! 🙂

    Paperbead rolling is my addiction, I can’t just sit and watch tv with the boyfriend so I craft watch the tv… he is in culinary school so we watch nothing but cooking shows haha

    seriously, i would buy any of those embroidery projects!!!

    • Kristy says:

      LOL! I have 2 prints still up

      I’m thinking of just moving them here up to the shop tab at the top with paypal buttons. I might have to get DH to figure that out LOL. I’ll let you know what happens 🙂 You’re too sweet!
