It looks like the tattooed stitchers are not nearly as rare as WHSV in Harrisonburg thinks. And, frankly, I am not surprised. We're creative! We love needles! (except maybe CinDC) We love color! If cross-stitch needles had ink in them, I'd look like Kat von D. It's true, I've actually pulled floss through my finger and stitched myself to a piece of fabric. (Lest you think I'm walking around with a big piece of linen sewn to my hand, I unstitched rather than breaking skin.)
Where was I going with this? I am brain dead today. The weather outside is frightful. I always do better with the sun out. Why I left L.A. I'll never know. And I just spent the past three hours proofing a donor report. There were about 10 pages of short text and 20 pages of columns of names. That's the worst. What totally freaks me out is that I actually caught mistakes in the lists.
My bil informed me that my nephews are totally into Harry Potter. They want some $20 wands for Christmas. I would so much rather make something so I am thinking about making "Weasley sweaters" only buying the sweater and duplicate stitching the monogram since I go to England three weeks from yesterday. Oh, and has the dude made any arrangements for this trip (beyond plane tickets)? Well, yes, we are staying with his sister for two days. Where we'll be for the other 5 days, (shrugging), who is to say? Ah, the dude being all dude on me. It's really best just to go into a sort of Zen state when he's having organizational issues that affect me. Pushing only results in stubborn. ("And even if he's a lazy man - and the Dude was most certainly that. Quite possibly the laziest in all of Los Angeles County, which would place him high in the runnin' for laziest worldwide...")
So anyway, if you know some good patterns for monograms that will fit on 6 year-old boy chests let me know. Man if you made it this
