Completed: Space Invaders Pattern

Ok, so I publicly admit it.  I cross stitch on the train.  I have no shame in pulling out my little bag of goodies:

and stitching away while my train takes its time trundling away into my station (which, might I add, is a good 40mins away from home - a perfect amount of time to study stitch).  Sure I get heaps of strange looks, but I don't really care, it's something constructive (and I don't feel the need to spread out, like I do when I study), and something to kill time when I'm on a train a few days a week.  When I realised that this would be a good idea, I had to pick a specialised "train project" - something small and out of the way that I could shove in any bag and work on.  So I remembered about the Space Invaders/HG Wells pattern from SpriteStitch which I found ages ago; it's one colour and small, so it fit the bill perfectly.  Here it is, in its (I should start timing it, how many train trips it took me to finish...) several trip (I stitch slowly. Ssh...) completed glory:
Completed, yes, but still unwashed and unframed...  I also just realised that I have no idea what I plan to do with it...  Genius, I know.

23 before 23: 6 month update!

Back in August I posted about 23 things that I wanted to achieve before I hit 23 next year (read about it here). Since we're at the 6 month mark, I thought an update was in store!

Writing this post and reading over my list I'm realising how much I've got to achieve - school holidays now, time to get busy! So far I've achieved...

12. Spend a day at the beach
Check! Was a gorgeous day and both myself and my boyfriend came back without being completely roasted. Considering how pale we both are, that was a surprise.

19. Find a signature makeup look
It only occurred to me the other day that I'd done this - I <3 my winged liner and bright lip.

20. Read 2 "classic" novels
Done and done!
Clearly I've gotten lazy with my book reviewing, haha. I've since read The Great Gatsby, Little Women and am currently marathoning my way through Anna Karenina.

I've noticed it just seems like I'm not a Jane Austen fan but have enjoyed all of the others that I've re…

Pichu Cross Stitch

My first cross stitch creation, created with KG-Chart LE.  It's a Pichu (from Pokemon), and I'm hoping to continue with this Pokemon theme through other cross stitches.  If I get around to this, I'll post a picture when I'm done =)
