Stitchy Superheroes and Wonder Woman Glamour

I realised today that it has been a loooong time since I picked up my knitting needles. Ever since finishing off the bedbug I've lost the drive. Not to mention one of the needles I use most often had gone walkies :(  But it's hardly the season for knitwear and although I have a few projects still looking forlornly at me from my knitting bag, I just can't find the time to finish them.

Mostly because I've been filling my days with random crafting, writing and studying. So, my current work in progress is taking a lot longer than anticipated. I learned to cross stitch a very long time ago, in primary school to be exact, and while I haven't done it for a while, it's easy enough to get back into. So, this is one of four cross stitch projects I have waiting for me.

This one is the Justice League of America and I still have Martian Manhunter and Flash to finish. So almost there. This particular line-up features one of the lamer versions of Aquaman (gold shirt, blond beard) without, sadly, his harpoon hand. That would've been awesome! After this I have The Avengers and The Green Lanterns to do and eventually I'll be moving onto a Star Wars scene too.

As I've probably mentioned before, I veer wildly between crafts. Knitting, sewing, cross stitch and back again, with some origami sprinkled in. Hence the random mix of projects here.

In other happenings, since it was my birthday a few weeks back and I had some spending money, I treated myself to some of the products from Mac's recent range of Wonder Woman make-up. Not only is the make-up great quality (as one would expect from Mac), but the packaging is pretty awesome too - cool Wonder Woman art on the boxes, white stars on blue on the inside and iconic red and blue tubes. Amazonian chic indeed.

I bought a thick black eyeliner pen, navy blue nail polish and a really nice red, matte lipstick, the likes of which I've been searching for for years. There are so many great items in this range, but they can be quite expensive, so I've not indulged any further. And believe me, it's taken all of my willpower. There are brush sets and make-up bags in Wonder-ful (see what I did there!) metallic shades and an exclusive T-shirt and tote bag too. Check them out.

And finally, if anyone found this blog by following links from the boyfriend wonder's facebook page and was only really interested in the superhero bedroom stuff, you may be interested in my newest blog. Be warned, it will only really be of interest to comic fans and not crafters, as it's where I review and discuss each weeks new comic releases. Super dorky, I know. As of yet it has no followers :( but hopefully that'll change. If it sounds like your type of thing, hop on over to Pink Ink comics, though I won't be offended if you don't.
