Cross Stitch Overload

Ever since I came to Perú, I have had a lot of spare time on my hands. Instead of letting it go to waste, I’ve been doing tons of craft projects.

First up was completing the Sleeping Beauty story panels.

Then I explored some patterns in friendship bracelets based on my imagination and what I saw sold on the streets of Cusco.

Next up was another unfinished project that I had brought with me- the Dalmation puppy “Achoo!”

Next I did a few small cross stitches from the pets book I brought with me.

That sums up what I got done in Cusco. When I first got to Lima I did a wrap on my earbuds

and then started the Phoenix, which took me 2.5 months. I’ve estimated that it took 200 hours, so that comes out to an average of 2.5 hours a day. During that time I listened to the entire music collection on my MP3 player and started going to Youtube for some different music.

Since I finished that, I have been doing some more small bits and pieces as gifts for my friends here.

I have also gone batshit crazy and started this one. If I finish it in 5 years, I will consider myself lucky.

So, that’s what I’ve been doing with my free time! Hopefully I’ll find some time to spare in the upcoming years to continue this type of projects.
