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

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.
