I haven't had much time for straight-up crafting lately, but I have had an hour or two most nights to plug away on all these tiny white Xes. All that white and the red embroidery floss was from stash. I purchased the pattern on etsy, it is stitched on 16-count aida.



I mistakenly cut the aida too small, so this one is going to be harder to just grab a frame-from-stash for like I did for the others. I have a few ideas, hopefully I'll get to them soon.

First toilet-themed cross stitch
No. 2 toilet-themed cross stitch.

I think it's my favorite, too. Although, it was not my favorite to complete as it was the hardest on my eyes. The monotony came at a good time in my crafting life as I could just sort of zone out while stitching it. I also did myself a favor and stitched the non-white bits in stages to give myself breaks in the blanc.

It's the cutest Cheesy.
You may be saving these up for an epic compilation post but if you can, without giving too much away, please explain what is it that you're up to. I know they're for a bathroom only the two of you will see but are you planning on covering the walls with silly? Inquiring minds want to know Grin

Another charming bathroom-themed creation!  This one reminds me of Shopkins too (but, then, any everyday item with a smiley face on it reminds me of those  Cheesy)!  I don't think I'd ever have the patience to make that many little white x's.

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

How punny! Congrats on completing it and not going blind. All of those white crosses would have been a deal breaker for me!

Thanks everyone!

Right? Such a simple design but with a few just-right details that make it just right.

It's the cutest Cheesy.

I'm thinking a silly, toilet-themed gallery wall in the tiny little toilet-only room! Not all handmade or by me, not all needlework.

How punny! Congrats on completing it and not going blind. All of those white crosses would have been a deal breaker for me!

Well, my middle-aged eyes did not like it at first, let me tell you! So I made myself follow that 20-20-20 rule for reading: stitch 20 mins, look 20 feet away for 20 seconds. It helped a lot. As did having kind of limited time most evenings.
