Over on Instagram, there is a delightful hashtag #bewellandstitch where a lot of designers are posting free patterns so that everyone has something to do during this time when we find ourselves social distancing/being under a shelter in place order.
I decided to make a quick little chalkboard-style pattern. The pattern hasn’t been tested so if there are any issues, please let me know. Obviously this pattern is pretty open for customization so go with any color(s) you want.
For those who play Destiny 2, you know that Trials came back this weekend. For those who know how I play Destiny 2, you know that I wouldn’t play Trials ever. I’d hate to go flawless so many times that Bungie would think I’m cheating and ban me forever. Yeah, that’s it.
Still, that doesn’t mean that I can’t cross-stitch something to celebrate Trials coming back. So, in the famous words of Kuzco, Boom, Baby!
I know you all know I love variegated thread, but I REALLY love this color of variegated thread. I mean, I don’t even like yellow, but I adore this color. Unfortunately, it’s a color that is discontinued — DMC Color Variation 4073, but you should be able to find it at some online retailers. If not, you can always use 90 or just any yellow if you don’t want the variegated look.
So, you might be wondering…Forty-11? Is that even a word? Is that her weird way of saying 51?
My Nana, when she would talk about a big number, would simply say that there were forty-eleven of that thing. And since I have been cross-stitching a long time, I figure that I’ve probably stitched close to forty-eleven stitches.
