Someday’s I just can’t adult! Between bills, laundry, dishes, vacuuming, work, and keeping the tiny humans and animals alive I just want to scream I CAN’T ADULT TODAY! I tell the kids adulting is hard, DON’T grow up!
So when I found That Stitch Shop on Etsy and her cute little tongue in cheek cross stitch patterns I knew I had to get them. She has A LOT but “the adulting is hard” one really screamed out to me. I purchased a three pattern bundle and started with the adulting.
I hadn’t cross stitched in probably five years, when I decided to start again. I’m caught up on orders and its just too hot to sit with yarn on my lap. Our house has no central air so it gets toasty in here. I’m giving this cross stitch to a friend but as I was stitching it up, I thought hhhmmm Do people buy these?, maybe I should add these to the shop. So this is the first cross stitch in the Etsy Shop.
I had to figure out though how to finish them. All the cross stitches I had ever done
before I just framed. But this I wanted to finish in the hoop. I found an awesome blog with the coolest felt idea ever and gave it a go. I need to perfect my hand sewing skills but, I’d say its not bad for the first try. Check out Stitched Modern for a awesome way to finish off a project.
I’d love to make you one too. They can be ordered on Etsy by clicking here. If you cross stitch and want to do your own click here to purchase the pattern from Emily at That Stitch Shop. Stayed tuned for more of these coming soon!
