For me, a day just isn't quite complete if I haven't done at least something a wee bit crafty, which helps explain why I have so many WIPs on the go. Some days it's tougher than others to find a way to make that happen: long days at the office and time away from home mean that sewing and quilting get a bit harder to do each day.
But recently, I've really been loving cross-stitch. In the summer when hand stitching quilt binding is just too hot, cross-stitch has become my answer: it's perfectly portable, and finishing even a few stitches in bed each night means that I don't go a single day without making something. Even better, all of those little x's mean that I don't have to think about even stitches or perfectly formed loops like I do with embroidery.
When looking for some cute cross-stitch patterns, I came across these stitchettes from Wee Wonderfuls. Cute, yes? I immediately knew they'd make a perfect addition to my kitchen.
I couldn't help but start with 'wool' and 'eggs' since they remind me most of my sister and me.
