I love it when Brushstroke Butterfly finishes come in for the gallery, they’re all unique and so much fun to see.
I cannot tell you how badly I really needed to just have some nice quiet stitching time. I finally had some this week. Not a lot of progress, but managed to get a little bit done on My Token of Love. This was taken with my phone last night, so it’s not the best picture… I’ll grab a better picture next time!
Honestly, everyone in my house is ready for summer break and we still have a few weeks of school left to go. I’m trying to think warm sunshiney thoughts over here today and Sunflower Sam caught my eye. He’s ready to go for summer fun and 4th of July activities, perfect for getting into a cheery mood and ready for summer break.
Sunflower Sam comes from The Sunflower Seed (and there are lots of other cute sunflower-themed charts from them, of course) and the design is a quick stitch at about 80 stitches high x 60 stitches wide.
This weekend my family happily wished everyone a happy “May the 4th be with you” and celebrated Free Comic Book Day!
And then to top off a weekend of geeky goodness, my husband took the boys to see Iron Man 3 Sunday morning. It was possibly the best weekend of the entire year. (I didn’t feel all that great, so I skipped the movie.)
People are always asking me where to find legitimate Star Wars cross stitch patterns, and it would seem there aren’t all that many out there to be had. This one is titled May the Force Be With You (although those words don’t actually appear on the design itself) and was charted by Andrew Read for Cody Country CrossStitch.
