This first one came from a little cross-stitch kit that I found at a thrift store. Originally, the people were both supposed to have red hair, and the lady's dress was supposed to be the same color as the man's overalls, but I changed the pattern a little bit to make it look more like my grandparents.




This one, you probably recognize as a Subversive Cross Stitch pattern. I made this for my sister's birthday, and I changed it just the tiniest little bit. I didn't really care for the pastel thread colors (and I didn't have any anyway), so I used some of the super-bright, almost-neon colors that I already had. Also there are a couple of instances where I added an extra stitch to a section (that first gorram "t" makes me so angry), and I had to undo quite a few rows because apparently I'm really bad at counting stitches. (The fact that I used 16 count aida cloth instead of 14 didn't help much either, oops.) But all in all, I'm pretty proud of it, and I'm hoping she likes it.

Looking for poly-clay earrings: one bacon, one fried egg. Also, a mishmash of red/orange/gold bracelets--beaded, braided, bangles, whatever! If you have the supplies, let's talk! (Please?) I'll swap all kinds of things in return!

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
