My Favorite Gift
Other than the awesome tv my darling husband gave me, my favorite Christmas gift is this book from my sister:

Back in the day, I was quite the cross stitcher. My grandma taught me many crafty things, cross stitch being one of them. I did butterflies, rainbows, etc. I haven't done it in a really long time but with patterns like these, I'm starting this weekend. I'm making this one for my sister (at her request):

And this one for me:

And just a few more of my favorites:

There are so many other hilarious patterns, I can't wait to get started. There's something about the combination of surly phrases and cute borders and images that is so funny to me. You can find more patterns on the website that aren't in the book, like this one and this one. These are going to be my best work ever.

Oh my GOD I MUST GET THIS BOOK and some THREAD NOW! I love it! That's an awesome gift. I'm so jealous.

Thanks again for the beautiful Christmas card! Now what are you guys up to for New Year's Rockin' Eve? I won't bore you with our lack of plans...but seriously, maybe I'll cross stitch something bitter!

I had a boyfriend back in the day that was a huge Tool fan. Yeah, yeah. Anyway, I did a cross stitch for him of their logo. AWESOME (if I do say so myself). I can't wait to see what you come up with.
