Valentines 2010: I Have Immunity This Challenge!!!

So Valentines was last weekend and that means Windy got something cross stitched instead of shiny or put-it-in-a-vase-and-watch-it-die-y!

I know the first one has been done a lot but I have been meaning to do it and since I can't top last years model, that gave me free reign. I guess this is what it feels like to have immunity on Project Runway. I could cross stitch a monkey opening a coconut with a turtle and it won't matter because last year was so great! That said I was really happy with how it turned out and she loved it too. Already framed and displayed too!

Speaking of tetris stitches, Mr X-Stitch himself told me that this really old project of mine was recently posted by the cool folks over at technabob.

The second I did just because I have wanted to do it for a while now and never got around to it. I was going to do it a different way but I really wanted something fast so I did a pretty straight forward thing.


A friend tried to tell me that her hubby thinks this sort of thing is ruining the curve for my guy friends. I say if there is a woman who actually wants a valentine that says "I'd rather kiss a wookie", well then I want to introduce her to my Ewok don't want to know about it because I love my wife.
