I know I’ve mentioned before that I’m having some issues with my weight. Some of it can be traced to a health issue that still hasn’t been diagnosed (the next step is a neurologist), but a lot of it has to do with a combination of laziness and just being plum worn out. I know I need to get my butt in gear (and shrink my butt) if I’m ever going to feel better. With that in mind, I’ve stitched myself a little reminder:
This cute little (!) guy was stitched on 32 count white Brittany, using DMC floss. He is an older TW design, and was first featured in the August 1990 issue of Just Cross Stitch. My copy of the chart actually came from the book [amazon_link id=”084871069X” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Quick and Easy Cross Stitch Gifts[/amazon_link] (thank you to my public library!).
This is a nice segue into my next semi-secret project: I would eventually like to stitch all of TW’s design. This is most certainly a lifetime project (and thank goodness most of her designs are timeless!). I’ve being doing quite well collecting all her patterns, but I still need a few. Please check out my wish list and let me know if you can help me out. I will be passing on any out of print charts that I can pass on (obviously not this one, since it is from a library book), so that TW’s out of print charts will be available to all her fans. I have no intention of selling any charts on eBay or elsewhere.
Back to little Miss Piggy; does anyone have a good finishing idea for her? I’d like to have her in the kitchen. She is about 2 1/2″ square-ish, I think.
