I'm working on something big and exciting and new, which I hope to share with you by the end of the month.  In the mean time, this little ditty is the latest addition to my craft room walls:

Isn't it sweet?  Perfect for sewing room mistakes.

I haven't done a cross stitch since I was 12, but I knew I had to do this one as soon as I saw the fantastic kit from Subversive Cross Stitch.  If you look closely you can see where I goofed a couple rows, but I'm not bothered in the slightest.  It was quick and fun, and it perfectly expresses how I feel every time I have to pick out a seam or scrape glue off my iron.

If you buy the kit, you should know the flower thread comes in red only; I added blue and purple for some variety. There's a ton of selection in the SCS shop, so if you like some snark with your craft, it's easy to get stitching!


  1. I LOVE THIS!!!!!!!!!! oh and i saw a project this morning and thought of you, not sure how into weaving you are but the colors and everything reminded me of you! here's the link:
    the original photo i saw of this had a bunch of these woven disks sewn together to make a wall hanging/rug.

  2. So glad you like! Thanks for sharing the link - I've been thinking a lot about weaving lately. Lots of memories from childhood doing this kind of thing. Could be fun.
