I apologize for not showing the images in this post, but everytime I try to post my entry, I keep getting this error message: In order to prevent spam bots and spammers from posting inappropriate pictures, you must post 10 times in the forum before you are allowed to post a picture. In the mean time you are allowed to post links to pictures.

So when I saw this sentence used over at BitterStitch, as a former tomboy who used to distain anything and everything "domestic" I fell in love with this quote right away.


I apologize for the wrinkles in the fabric- I just moved halfway across the country this week and figuring out which box my iron is in was just more trouble than what it was worth. Smiley


Here is a better close up on the whole piece, with a more accurate shade of the purple I used. The pattern was designed in PC Stitch Creator software and the quote was written in the Garamond font.


Here's a close up of the heart 'n bones I stitched at each corner. I couldn't find a decent pattern for it online, so I used an image from Sanrio and converted it into a pattern with my software.

And with that, I officially end my days of lurking on this site!
