I've come to that point in the year where I realize I need to be three places at once stirring a cookie dough while wrapping presents. The list has gone from what I'd like to do, to what I need to do, to what I can possibly do over the next week. What I need is a wife. Some of you may have read Judy Brady (Syfers)'s article back in the day or later in your feminist theory class (I have a sneaking suspicion not a lot of you were in feminist theory courses, but I can dream...) (Anyway, if you've never read it, I found it for you; go have a look.)
Adrienne of Martini Made has a question for you all. She needs pattern ideas for a 12 year old beginner cross-stitcher. I thought the Mary Kirby series from Bright Needle; Lizzie * Kate or Bent Creek, especially early patterns; or the Just a Quickie series of monsters from Amy Bruecken (pictured).
Do you all have anything to suggest? Many thanks.
