Funny cross stitch

This post fall under the category of things that I'm just having fun with and don't plan to sell.

I've done cross stitch before where I did half a cross stitch. But until now I've never had a pattern in which I do anything more or less than 1/2 a square in cross stitch. See the following photo if you want to see what I mean by doing more or less than 1/2 a stitch.

Please forgive the photo quality. I took this shot on my iPhone (which actually isn't a bad camera) in a moving car with so-so lighting.

If you want to see what the big picture of this project is...

It's a baby bib. It was the most inexpensive thing at Michael's that looked like the most fun. Hopefully I'll find a baby to give the finished thing to. :)

Stick weaving

I recently went to the B.C. Highland Games, and while I was there I discovered stick weaving. I'd never heard of it before, and when I found out that there was a kit for stick weaving for sale I soon decided that I had to buy it.

I took photos of the first thingy I made with it (because I'm just weird like that) and wanted to share them here.

I'm thinking that I might make little patches with this and do needlework on the patches for my Etsy shop.

Ta da! My first stick woven thingy completed. :)

It's really easy.

I tried to find the place I bought it from online so that I share a link here, but no luck. All I can tell you is that their e-mail addy is celtic_daughters_art@yahoo.ca. I also had a really good conversation about SCA with the woman who demonstrated stick weaving to me and who sold me the kit.
