I just finished the tiniest thing I've ever cross stitched. It's Mario on 28 count cloth. He turned out smaller than the size of a penny. I put him inside this little frame and made it into a necklace. It was hard to stitch something that tiny (and I used full crosses) but I love the way it came out. I might make a whole collection of "micros."

I made this Ms Pacman necklace today out of plastic canvas. One of my friends requested it and I'm going to give it to her tomorrow. It was the first thing I've actually made using plastic canvas. It was a bit different than Aida cloth or fabric, but over all, I'm happy with how it came out (there are a few mistakes.) I've been cross stitching for such a long time that it was interesting to try it on a different medium.

I made this when my daughter was born, then put it in a box and totally forgot about it. I found it tonight when I was looking for something else. It's just a simple stitch of her name. (She's 9 months old... actually, she's exactly 9 months today.)
