September crafting update

This year I challenged myself to complete one of my unfinished craft projects each month. The good news is that now I don't actually have a proper unfinished project left to complete! So this month I've been doing a bit more work on my cross stitch map.

I've had this cross stitch map for a few years now. It's just cross stitch fabric which has a dark blue map printed on it, and then you can stitch in the countries that you've visited. That didn't take me very long, and it was looking quite bare, so I decided to fill in the gaps around the edge with a patchwork of different pictures based on places that I've visited. Eventually I want the whole area to be filled with stitching, but there's still quite a lot left to work on!

This month I completed the dinosaur skull at the bottom and the ice cream on the left. Most of the patterns are ones that I've designed myself, you can find links to some of them at the bottom of this post. I'm also filling in some areas just with blue or with waves. It's something that I can just pick up and put down as the mood strikes me, and I really enjoy coming up with the different designs.
