When I showed my mom what I had made for my grandmother, she seemed to get jealous so I've been trying to come up with a pattern related to one of her favorite things: coffee. Unfortunately, I don't think this one is quite her style, but I think it is pretty cool so I'm sharing it. All of the fonts (except one) and the coffee cup came from various free patterns online. I had to make up the bottom font because I couldn't find another one that fit.

I made this recently for my grandmother. I took up cross stitching because I love all the pieces of it she did over the years that now fill up her house. She doesn't know I do this as a hobby though so I think she'll be surprised. I borrowed the dove pattern from a free one I found online and got the text from a cross stitch text generator so I can't really share the pattern since none of it is my own. I have no idea what I'm going to do next. I'm still recovering from a week spent with 10 two year old rambunctious kids at Vacation Bible School and thoroughly enjoying just laying in bed while listening to music. I do have a lot of unfinished patterns and thoughts so maybe I'll revisit one of those soon.

I haven't been posting or crafting much this year, but I do have some exciting news to share. My cross stitch pieces of Pinky and the Brain were featured on Craftster and my Tetris magnets were featured on Sprite Stitch. Both sites are full of such talented and creative people that I feel honored (and surprised!) to have anything I make noticed by them.
