Hi! I haven't posted in a while because I've been working on an epic project.  As soon as the last color of floss I need arrives in the mail I'll finish it and post...

For the time being, here's a cross-stitched fridge magnet I made for my wonderful friend Daniel B whose boyfriend is also Daniel B, hence DBČ! 



I got the letters from a book of stitched and embroidered alphabets I picked up at the craft store.  There's some weird stuff in there (cow letters, scary clowns) but the weather one was my favorite. 

It's nearly all cross-stitched and the gray in the clouds is blended white and gray floss.  I was confused about the green and orange bits for a minute but I realized it must be autumn leaves swirled around by the purple wind.

I've been loving making these magnets as it's fast and fun and a little Fray Check and a $2 magnet frame is all you need.

Cheers!

She's too pure for the likes of this world, this world is a whore.

A smile to hide the fear away, Oh smear this man across the walls, like strawberries and cream, it's the only way to be.

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