Aaand we're back.

Well, I'm back at uni.  Yesterday was the first day of my last year at university - this time next year I'll be a fully-fledged primary school teacher!  (assuming nothing goes drastically wrong, of course)  I did get to use three of my previously posted crafts, which is great; I wore my quote scarf (which I'm thinking of decorating further, thoughts?) and my sparkly sneakers (which actually held up really well in this rainy weather, no excess glitter falling off as I walked) and of course my uni books.  The glitter one... is balding and there was bits of glitter falling off left right and centre even though I did an extra coat of PVA glue a few days ago.

Anyway, back a few years ago, I started stitching the Epic Pokemon Pattern found on Sprite Stitch.  I'd done Ponyta, and bits and pieces of the various Pokemon around it.  Until a few weeks ago.

I unpicked it.

Now, I don't recommend doing this.  It was time consuming and fluff-spreading.  I did it because I knew I'd miscounted irreparably and I wanted to start again.  So I have.

This time, starting with Bulbasaur.

Epic Pokemon Pattern WIP #1

Apparently I don't have a lot of the colours needed for Bulbasaur though (I have mostly reds/oranges/yellows), but oh no, what a shaaaaaame I'll have to head to Spotlight this weekend, haha.

Since I do have loads of uni work to finish...

See you Friday!

Pattern: No Navi!

It's been a while...  Life's been pretty hectic around here, finally 3/4 way through my prac, so hopefully I can get more pattern making / stitching sometime...  For now, here's a small pattern inspired by this demotivational poster:

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 =)

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…
