Cross Stitch My Heart

I went out last week to karaoke. I sang "Rebel Rebel" by David Bowie. Apparently I was okay!

Looking very plain and simple (to me anyway)
I'm Fat, Let's Party shirt: Seibei
Cotton biker jacket: Ebay
Skirt: Big W
Tights: We Love Colors
Boots: Dr Martens

It was both of my coworkers birthdays today. We work in a team of three, and they really help me along in my job. One of them was turning 50, so it was a big deal. I decorated her table, with the help of my other coworker. I organised a lunch at the University tavern for the whole group. I also baked a HUGE amount of my brownies.

Her desk after we were finished! I photoshopped her head onto a Sookie and Eric picture from True Blood (I don't watch the series)
My presents to them were a box of brownies each, and a cross stitch!
Game of Thrones dragon cross stitch for my coworker turning 50. I did the dragon green because I wanted to keep it like Daenerys Targaryen's dragons.
I made this for my other coworker, he is a nerd and has a man crush on Robert Downey Jr.
What was really nice is that they got me a box of chocolates!! I don't know why, but they said that they knew I was going all out for their birthday and that I deserved something.

That shirt is fantastic. I kinda want one that proclaims my love for chubby dudes.

What a thoughtful coworker you are! :D And I have to say that Avengers cross stitch is at least 37 kinds of wonderful. So awesome! LOVE IT!

You make great birthday presents! No wonder they gave you chocolates!

May I ask, with your job, did you have your awesome hair when you got it or did you gradually bring it in? How do you deal with dressing for work? I finish my degree this year, and I like to dress like I'm from the Victorian era, and I am interested in input from anyone about how that might go down in the library workplace. Thanks.

Could any night go any nice that with a awesome Bowie song.
I dont't remember it what was the last time i did cross stich, but it used to help me spend time, i really need to go back to it, it's kind of therapeutic don't you think?

It was an amazing surprise, they are lucky to have you(btw amaaaaaazing nails)

The avengers cross stitch is a really neat gift!
I don't think your look is plain; simple yes, but plain... far from it! ;)

Hey, I just found your blog, and I love your style! The "I'm fat let's party" shirt is especially awesome--I've been meaning to get one as well. :-)
