Basically 2 nights of five straight hours of cross stitching. It doesn’t look like it should take that long except bathroom breaks, eating, sleeping, having a day job, clicking to the next episode of Adventure Time, etc etc. It’s just as glorious as you thought it would be when you first saw the pattern, friends. So thank you to the lovely lady running Today I Wrote Nothing who made this and uploaded it for the rest of us to stitch, bro.

I used to cross stitch while my mom was sewing, but it’s been a million years since I did it. I was recently re-inspired by an X-Files pattern, and a handful of weeks ago when I was in my dad’s basement going through a bunch of my high school/early college stuff I found a totally rad solar-system box full of embroidery thread. In fact, I found all the colors I needed (not exact shades, but close) for the Hawkeye you see up there. I messed up around the right side of his mask, where I biffed my counting and skipped a row, but it still works if you aren’t looking too hard. I mean, I guess I just got back to Iowa, so I had to cross stitch another Iowan. Mostly naked. 


If I could cross stitch at all, I would give this its own Laura Ashley frame and put it in a place of honor next to the FUCK THE POLICE cross stitch MK made me.
