@MaidMarian:  Can you show me the LOZ one? Alex would love that!

I do 5×7 mostly too, and not the hard ones. The one I’m doing now is very simple but I only have 3 weeks

The baby one took me 5 months, and I delivered it AFTER the baby was born.

The ones I’ve been doing lately have been frog orientated, because the SO has this thing with frogs. I have a thing with mice. I’ll have to find a way to combine them.

@aithinne:  They usually take me a long time, which is why I picked something so simple

So I was talking to the SO last night and telling him that I was being encouraged by my boss (who is getting married in Nov) to go dress shopping.

He says : “Isn’t that something you girls do?” 

I about died. I thought that was so funny. I explained that no, it wasn’t, because bridal consultants can be like car salesmen. Pushy. LOL

@Laurenplusalex:  http://makibird-stitching.deviantart.com/art/Zelda-291450837 There you go, I printed that out 🙂 The best part is it’s only 4 different colours lol but some colours you’ll need a couple of skeins of. She does other nerdy ones as well ^^ Like pokemon and I found her while looking for a chocobo design to send BF while we were LD

 

I feel better knowing you guys do smaller patterns as well!

@aithinne:  I love hearing about your SO, he always makes amusing comments XD My BF’s mum and step-father have a thing for frogs as well – and their cake topper were frogs cuddling I think (seriously the house is full of ornamental and cuddly frogs, even 3 real ones and a pond of them in the garden).

@MaidMarian:  He’s a funny guy. The last few cross stitches I’ve done have been for him. 

 

I did this:  and  for him recently.

The 3 frogs are hear, speak, see no evil. The picture is kinda small.

@aithinne:  Ooh I love that second one! Would you mind if I ask where you got the pattern? That would be a /perfect/ christmas present for BF’s folks

I quite like cross stitching, well I say that… never done it ‘properly’ but had to teach it a few weeks back as part of art. The kids loved it… especially the boys!

One week til I get my keys eee!

Ugh.. I have a vendor coming in today, and a staff meeting tomorrow, plus my boss is back, so there’s going to be a whole lot less of me today and tomorrow.

@MaidMarian:  I found a mistake in my pattern last night. I’m a stitch to far over, but really, to fix it would take longer than just copensating for it. I HATE when that happens!

@aithinne:  I never fix my mistakes, too discouraging to rip out my work
