Cool. Cool Cool Cool.

Aaaaand we're back.  It's also my younger brother's birthday today, so while I'm writing this a whole group of his friends are playing Halo.  Really loudly.  My peaceful Wednesday night has been ruined!  (I'm kidding.  It's actually not that bad.  Especially with a door closed and headphones on.  But I digress.)

Both my brother and I are huge Community fans, and his favorite character is Abed.  So when I found this pattern on Etsy, I knew what he was getting for his birthday.  A little Abed bookmark.

Abed Bookmark, Full!

It's adorable!  Oh, for those who don't watch Community (go watch it.  Now.), Abed's catch phrase is saying "cool" usually 3 times in a row. Hence today's title, and why I decided to quickly add "cool cool cool" to the top of the bookmark.

I'm super excited to stitch up the rest of the crew, I have Troy's leg-and-foot-outline done.  This time making the bookmark, I decided to try out a glue instead of blanket stitch.  It worked surprisingly well, I was really surprised.

Fabric Glue!

This was the stuff I used.  My local craft shop was conveniently having a sale, so I got my bottle for $2!  Not bad, in my opinion.

Hopefully my bro likes it (I baked cakes today, so I haven't had a chance to give it to him)!

Until next time,

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 =)
