… and a new hobby is born.
My sister (who, as far as I know, does not read this blog … fingers crossed) mentioned a while ago that she’d really like one of those salty cross-stitch samplers … you know, the kind that are sometimes on regretsy.
(Which site, in a moment of kismet, just featured a sassy cross-stitch photo stitch pattern maker.)
(Probably NSFW, just sayin’.)
Anyhoo, I wasn’t having any luck tracking a ready-made salty sampler down on etsy … then it hit me: I could probably handle some cross stitch. So … with my basic crafty knowledge, I decided to try to keep it simple and within my skill set. And ordered a kit from subversive cross stitch. Just one evening later, I am the proud stitcher of a very awesome birthday sampler. It was so much fun, so quick, so easy (and admittedly very beginner-friendly) … that I immediately ordered two more kits. I can’t wait until August to send them off, and can only hope that la sœur is as enamored of the salty results as I am!
She’s plenty salty, that’s for sure.
