I spend a ridiculous amount of TikTok, even before quarantine even started. My TikTok is a mix of sports, One Direction, and dark jokes. Now, I’ve fallen into a rabbit hole.
There are a lot of talented artists on TikTok, a chunk seems to be good at cross-stitching and I’ve gotten addicted to these videos. The things people can make are insane, look at this koi pond:

Or some sew onto clothes (technically embroidery) which is baller:

Watching all of these makes me want to learn how to embroider/cross-stitch. I would definitely not be that talented at it. I know how to sew but barely. I think if I really honed in my skill I could do some of these.
All of the designs above radiate “soft girl” vibes and that ain’t me. I said I’d punch a boomer last week. The memes are where my heart would be:

My mom would totally hate me hanging all of these up and down the hallways of the house but come on, it’s art. Plus, I would sew the dumbest shit onto all of my clothes. Plain shirt? Not anymore, it says something stupid like “the Chicago Blackhawks own my ass” or “I’m a pirate”. Once again, disappointing my mother.
Quarantine days are getting longer and picking up another hobby will either be a blessing or a curse to my time management skills. For now, I guess I’ll live vicariously through the TikToks.
