One of the other things I’ve been working on, and just got the go-ahead to do, is shoot some video footage of what we’re calling PAXisms for now. It’d definitely a bit grab ass, but we have a fantastic team

Day 23: Mini Painting and Cross Stitch

Did more cross stitch as usual, and started base coating my mini for the Iron Painter competition. Got kind of tired partway through, which is why it looks all splotchy. Wasn’t really having a crafty sort of night.
