Pirate's Creed


Pirate's Creed

Finished yesterday. Although Sue Hillis' Designs aren't my usual style, i could not pass this one up. Should I hang it up in my office at school? or at home? An easy stitch (4 days or so) using 28 count khaki evenweave and DMC floss.

I was going to stitch this for my old office but it seemed like so much work to commemorate having a crappy job. Still, I vote for school. I've taught college kids before.

That's really cute! LOL Your post partially answered my question... I am new to the world of stitching and have been browsing various blogs to try and gain some knowledge and get some tips / ideas. I originally started with a stamped, then counted “kits”. I’m working on my 2nd chart and have noticed some big differences in floss types and quality.
My Cross Stitch Mentor has told me that I’m ready to graduate from Aida, but I really like Aida. Maybe it’s just beginner’s comfort???
If you would answer my question… What type of fabric or fabrics do you prefer and why? Brands and counts?
I would appreciate any advice, thanks!

Great job! I would love to stitch this for DH's office (since I work from home). So my vote is office. :)

PS. I sent you an email a while ago re the Bent Creek chart and Quaker Diamond. :)

Looks great! Put it up in the hallway in front of the bedrooms just as a reminder!! LOL! Have you seen her pirate santa piece? That's the one I just have to do!

That is awesome and now I must stitch it as well - for my office... all four of them, as a matter of fact :)

Obviously - I vote office!
