I just have to share special news! My best friend of over 15 years is engaged!! Joelle and Ronnie have been together almost 10 years so as you can tell I’ve been waiting for this to happen for like ever! Here’s a picture of her ring
It’s beautiful and fits her personality perfectly. As soon as I heard the news, I immediately starting looking for cross stitch projects to make for the two of them. You probably guessed that I was on Pinterest searching (you’d be right!) I found the following pattern.
I just think this pattern is so cute. I would choose different colors and redo the font for the names. I probably would chose a cursive backstitch font to make the names pop! I haven’t started this project yet because they just got engaged Saturday and I’m not sure they have even set a date. I really just wanted the share the great news of love with you all!
Speaking of love, I have to show you something. Recently I was looking at pictures on Instagram. You know, just being nosy! While on the popular page, I noticed something. When I clicked on the picture a beautiful haiku was right before my eyes. And I instantly fell in love with it! Here’s a screenshot I took with my phone.
How amazing and precious is that! I have seriously looked at those words over and over the last couple days! There is just something about them that appeal to my heart. (If you haven’t guessed it, I’m a hopeless romantic!)
Since I am also a cross stitcher, I have decided to make this beautiful haiku into a pattern. I also decided to be old fashioned and not use my computer to make the pattern. So I bought these!
I will tell you now that I have started trying to compose the haiku into a cute font. It is a little harder than I imagined because I’m not very artistic at all! Also I do not know whether I want to make it with regular stitches or do it in a backstitch font. I do not have anything worthy of showing you just yet BUT I know I will by the end of the week, so stay tuned!!
