|My Michaels haul|
I'm talking phrases like "Don't be a Cunt" and "Eat Shit and Die" type of stuff. Crude humor. Inside jokes. With some little hearts and flowers for effect.
I first decided to buy a little cross stitch kit from Walmart just to see how I liked it. I didn't read the instructions and just did what I thought made sense. I took that little kit and, instead of constructing the picture on the sheet, I wrote 'idfc' and a heart. From there, I was "hooked".
But lately it's more floral with bitchy little quotes to go along.
I do plan to sell them. I'd like to open an etsy store but, after talking to another fiber artist, she said that they take a decent chunk out of your earnings. It's something I truly enjoy doing and it helps me be creative and decompress, so even if no one wants to buy them I'll keep making them just for me.
Hell, maybe decades from now someone will find MY cross stitch in an antique store..."shut the fuck up" and all...
