And that's my first contribution to this fine and wonderful blog.

The Hypnotoad is my second finished cross stitch project since I was spurred to take up the hobby by conversation amongst friends on Twitter. The first one was the Prince from Katamari Damacy:

I had done a couple of cross stitch projects when I was much much MUCH younger, but the entire hobby at the time wasn't really geared towards the interests of a young male geek. However, the advent of the internet has allowed for a much wider range of possible projects, not to mention a blog like this that will inspire me to move much quicker to actually finish projects. Because this is what Hypnotoad looked like 196 days ago:

I had planned on moving on to a project involving the "hero" of the FX animated series Archer that Terry had pointed out to me, but I can no longer find it. And thus, I am in the hunt for a new project. I found a Scott Pilgrim project last night, but I don't know if I want to commit to a cross stitch pattern that involves - no joke - 101 different colors.
