Thank you everyone for the likes and reblogs. The design is taken from a pixel artwork by pretty-transparents. This is in fact cross-stitch, not needlepoint- its worked with 3 strands of satin cotton thread on 14 count Aida.
I think I’m having an existential crisis… I was cross-stitching it for two years. And then I finished it… well, nothing happened. But not only this. While I was working on this I had a constant thought “It would look better then I’ll finish it”. And now I have no such hope. It’s already finished and it’s surely wouldn’t get any better =\ And now I’m like “why did I even thought it was a good idea? why I was spending my time and money for this? nobody wanted or needed this except for me. and, at the end, even I don’t feel like it was the thing I wanted and needed”. So I’m just sitting, looking at it and thinking “wait… so what was the point of all of this?”.
I was able to get a couple good shots of the pin cushion Kit made Damien for his birthday. It’s absolutely amazing craftsmanship. I wanted to stick the needles in it but I just couldn’t bring myself to do it yet.

Hello, I’m originally from small town New York, but currently getting my master’s in Medical Anthropology in England (here until September). I’m writing my dissertation of medicine/healing in witchcraft. Queer. I’ve never had a pen-pal, but I’ve always wanted to give it a go. One day I’ll learn Korean and Russian, but for now I’ll spend my free time crocheting and cross stitching, binge watching tv shows and movies, and attempting to improve my hand writing. I’m an avid collector of teas and books that I swear I’ll get to one day, I promise. I love to travel, the little I’ve done, and am looking at the Peace Corp in the next few years. One day I hope to have a house in the woods with small farm with alpacas, and my own tea shop.
