story in someone s comments somewhere, but I can t remember where There was a thing going around on Facebook recently where you posted that you would make a craft thing for the first five people who responded, which I thought was lovely I ve been a beaded necklace maker for years, so I figured a bunch of ladies would respond and I d send them all mediocre necklaces Well no, the first person to respond was a dude So I was all, Oh shit, really I don t know how to make cra I already told this story in someone s comments somewhere, but I can t remember where There was a thing going around on

bunch of ladies would respond and I d send them all mediocre necklaces Well no, the first person to respond was a dude So I was all, Oh shit, really I don t know how to make crafts for dudes And my friend got all pissed, saying that I was sexist and a bitch for assuming that handmade things were only for girls Jeez So I thought maybe I d make him a necklace that said fuck you, but then of course I wanted to show him I could make him something he d actually want, and I hit upon the idea of a cross stitch bookmark that said the same Anyway, I thought I was so uniquely brilliant, but then it turns out that this idea has already been had, of course, and a million thanks to Ceridwen for showing me the light This book is awesome, and of course the first thing I did even though I haven t cross stitched a thing since I was probably eleven was try to modify the words and the border pattern, with, naturally, mediocre results My sister is leaving town for some crazy travels, so I wanted to make something for her first Hopefully this will be used to patch the knee of a pair of much patched jeans, and she will wear it with pride until it falls apart Hey, I did another one In order for this to make sense, you have to know that my BFF has decided that balls love I m not sure why Anyway, this is what she requested, so this is what I delivered image error I admit I m a little concerned about what will happen when she brings a dude home he sees this hanging on her wall Hopefully she will explain that it is not a command but a slightly twisted observation I ve told her that I will not be held responsible for any testicular hijinks Oh look, I did another Each a little absurd er than the last This one is for my bf, and it features a rainbow taking a shit It was his idea, honest He s a classy guy image error As an avid cross stitcher, I bought this book for the mere fact that the designs are not filled with flowers and those fucking tatty teddies I HATE those goddam designs It s a nice idea and some of them will make nice, funny presents for friends but they are incredibly easy to do and really there is not that much to them I like my designs to be a taddifficult than this this is not a case that simplicity is best, it s just the designs all look rather bare once they re completed.When I g As an avid cross stitcher, I bought this book for the mere fact that the designs are not filled with flowers and those fucking tatty teddies I HATE those goddam designs It s a nice idea and some of them will make nice, funny presents for friends but they are incredibly easy to do and really there is not that much to them I like my designs to be a taddifficult than this this is not a case that simplicity is best, it s just the designs all look rather bare once they re completed.When I get time I like to try and design my own designs, difficult as I cannot draw A good thing about the designs in this book is that they have a nice variety of borders to use so that makes it easier for me and my attempt at designing.It s a fun book, but unfortunately it s a bit too simple for my liking I appreciate this book for being a liberating, crafty book with good information to people just trying out the cross stitching waters However, my friends were able to write about 20 alternative sayings over the course of one dinner that were wittier, funnier, snarkier, irreverent er, truthier, etc than the epithets in this book Bottom line a good manual for beginners or a fun coffee table book, but if you have cross stitch experience you could just make these up yourself.
