Well - it's been another long time since I've posted last. Lots of stuff has been going on - which is why I'm going on a hiatus for a while. In the mean time here's a bunch of stuff that I've been doing!

So I went with the Tetris design - and made my very first cross stitch. It took a couple of hours, and its definitely not perfect. But I had a lot of fun! And I can't wait to do it more! I've already got plans for a few more!

So I've just returned from a 2.5 week trip for work that was just so exhausting! I spent the  past weekend lounging, ignoring the sunshine, and catching up on Mad Men. So now I'm all ready to craft again, but I need some help!

A few months ago my company switched from blackberries to iPhones, and I got all excited because of these cases. A diy cross stitch case for your iPhone! But once it came time to actually purchase one, I couldn't decide what I wanted to put on there ( I mean, that's a big decision!) so I never ended up purchasing one. Then I came upon this blog, and was happy I never went ahead with it. There are some problems, mainly that the stitches are left open and can easily rip etc. But, using a clear case - I could make one for myself!

But, now comes the hard part - again - what do I put on there!?! I have some criteria: I want it to be slightly nerdy, and also pretty easy - since I've never done this before. It also has to be able to fit on my phone (either my iPhone or Galaxy Nexus). So here are some ideas I've found and liked: What do you think??

I would probably only do the heart design.

I would probably only do Ang (the center character).

I'm heavily leaning towards the tetris heart, as it's cute, colorful, simple and geeky! But I'm not sure if I can make the size small enough to fit on my phone !

I could go all Portlandia and just "put a bird on it" - that's geeky right?
