Pattern Pick of the Day: Vintage Typewriter by Pinoy Stitch

because I’m a sucker for anything with a vintage typewriter….

Vintage Typewriter Mini Cross Stitch Pattern by Pinoy Stitch available on Amazon.com

I’ve always had a writer’s heart and I would spend weekends in my room typing away at the typewriter, even after I got my first computer (Commodore 64) I still loved to type on that old typewriter. These days I settle for fancy fonts and Word or OpenOffice, but I’ve been considering hunting down a working typewriter to add to my office.

Pattern Pick of the Day: Victorian House by Mill Hill

Victorian House – Mill Hill Cross Stitch Kit

The neighborhoods from Mill Hill are just too cute. The architectural details and the colors on this Victorian are what brought me in. I’ve been adding the winter neighborhoods to my wishlist all week. I can’t decide if I want them in frames or if I want to create a long single piece on fabric instead of the perforated paper that the Buttons & Beads kits are usually stitched on.

Kit contains chart and instructions, Mill Hill glass beads and button, perforated paper, needle and stranded cotton threads.

Approximate design size is 5 x 5 inches (matching frames available from Mill Hill, sold separately)
