So I got my ridiculously expensive Polaroid film about two days ago. I've been dreaming of the wonderous manipulated polaroids I'm going to create since then. I also picked up a Polaroid Captivia today at a yard sale for $3. Quite a bargain to say the least!
I'm quickly moving along with my little crossstich pattern; take a look for yourself! Here's with the light turquoise added; and here is the pale turquoise added; and here's the pale orange!! Next I'm working on the pale tan on the bottom!
So during one of my trips to Michael's I rummaged through the discount bin and found this lovely little crossstich pattern for 27 cents! I thought it was too cute to pass by! This is the photo of what it should like like when finished... ..and this is what I have done so far. I've finished all of the light orange embroiding and am working my way onto the light turquoise. I will keep you posted as it continues! I learned how to crossstich in elementary school when I joined an afterschool club run by one of my friend's crazy mother. I haven't crossstiched since probably early middle school so it feels good to brush up on the subject again. I might even pull out some old unfinished projects and ones I never got around to and finish those up too!
I found this little gem recently at my neighborhood dollar store. If you can't tell from the picture it's a little ceramic creamer shaped like a camera! I was astounded with the find and walked around the store for a while with the intention of buying it, but eventually talked myself out of it. No I do not regret this decision, well not too much. It didn't seem very practical to buy a creamer that I would most likely not use, so this picture will suffice. I just wanted to share what treasures can be found at the dollar store!
