Wesley and Buttercup love

SmallsSAL2014



For the first time in months I can join in with the Smalls SAL!

I found Pixel People cross stitch patterns a while ago, then recently someone was talking about a pattern they'd bought from this shop.  I hopped over to take a look and found myself buying 2 Princess Bride patterns.  Now this is madness.  Princess Bride is Mr CA's favourite film and I wanted to stitch them for him.  Remember how I said I'd never make him anything again after the Tardis pouch debacle?



I stitched this little picture of Wesley and The Dread Pirate Roberts AKA Wesley whilst at the Manor House.  It's going to be a Valentine's or anniversary present.  I also bought a pattern of the cast of characters which I'll probably stitch up for Christmas for him.  At least then when he hates it and asks what it is I'll know the Valentine's/anniversary gift won't be well received!  Why do I do this to myself?

I'm going to have to stitch the next one secretly, so it will be when he is out at archery, mind you, I could probably sit there next to him and stitch it and he wouldn't even look to see what I was doing!

cross stitching, yeah! Yours is more polished than mine though #obvs

I once managed to stitch an Eeyore for a friend while sitting on the couch in his living room - although the fact that it was 28hpi over 1 probably helped!
The Princess Bride is one of our favourite films, too..

Yeah my husband wouldn't know what I was working on either, even if I was doing it right in front of him - he doesn't pay attention at all, and I never make him anything because he doesn't want anything. Our bedroom curtains and pillowcases and bed quilt were made by me, and that's the extent of his interaction with anything I sew :D I wouldn't work on the V-Day cross-stitch until you see what he thinks about the Christmas one - unless it's something YOU like :D

I am wondering if there is any craft you cannot achieve, every blog has revealed another new one, must own up to not being a cross stitcher myself, found I was going cross eyed when i tried it

Nice work Wendy. My DH never looks at what I am stitching - just says ` stitching again´
