You guys, how did it get to be February so quickly? And how did February get to be half-over even faster? Yikes. This year is flying by, and this blog needs to keep up. I’ll try to post at least one new post a week from now on.
So, what’s been going on with me? Well, I recently started sewing again. Yes, you already knew that. But what you didn’t know is that I graduated into srsly big patterns (for me, at least).
Check out this rockin’ robin I made for my grandmother-in-law for Christmas! She lives in Michigan. (That may be obvious.) Unfortunately, I didn’t measure the fabric correctly, so there wasn’t room for the border. But I still think it turned out pretty well.
I also made this mockingbird for my step-grandmother. You can probably guess where she lives. Alas, he was not finished in time for Christmas; but better late than never.
Both of these patterns were purchased from Robin’s Design on Etsy (the patterns are her copyright, not mine). If you’re into cross-stitching, you really need to check her stuff out, especially if you have a treasured photo and would love a custom cross-stitch pattern made of it. Also check out the delightfully dirty-mouthed Subversive Cross Stitch, and the fantastic-beyond-all-words Steotch (Etsy store here, gallery here). David bought me this great “Arrested Development”-themed pattern, which I need to sew soon. And I bought myself some of these Christmas ornament patterns. Hopefully they’ll be done in time for Christmas 2013. Or at least 2014.
