Big Boys

Oh yeah, my blog. Where I should post stuff 'n junk. ^_^

I finished a couple of large projects, so what the heck - wanna see?

The first one is old news, both the stitch and the subject. I'm not rubbing it in or anything, it's my Mom's Christmas present.

The pattern for this is available at Subversive Cross Stitch and I highly recommend it.

I also put some recent ebay goodies to good use. I bought some sampler pattern books from the 70's and 80's, kept what I liked, tossed what I didn't, threw in a Jonathan Coulton song and this came out:

If you haven't heard the song First of May, check it out at JoCo's site. You can listen to it for free on his Downloads page.

I think my fingers need some time to recover. Maybe I'll take a break... We'll see how long that lasts. :)
