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.
