This week on Iron Craft, we were to do a Valentine.
Since last week my Valentine was dedicated to my girls,
this week I made one for the love of my life - my hubs.
The man I love, the way a fat kid loves cake.
I'm not sure where I first heard the saying, but I *love* it.
And since for part of my childhood I was chubster,
I feel entitled to be able to say it without feeling like it is offense.
((That's my way of saying, I hope it doesn't offend you))
For this project I did free form cross-stitch.
Cross-stitch was probably my first needle craft when I was a youngster.
There is a lot of satisfaction and it's not technically difficult.
Unfortunately I look at it now and think it is so antiquated.
And I'm not a fan of subversive cross-stitch.
I would think subversive + crafty = right up my alley.
But it's not.. I typically find it crude.
I figured there HAS to be something in the middle.
Something between a bunny dressed as a bear and embroidered cuss words.
This is what I came up with!
I drew the words with a transfer pen - trying to emulate a child's writing.
I then dove in with my needle.
I had to make 1 change while stitching without a plan.
Lucky me I had some fabulous cupcake fabric in my stash.
I love food fabric, but rarely can come up with a good project.
I adore my little cake and fork on this mini quilt.
It's rare that I can think of a craft that my hubby will like.
He likes beer, hunting, and his girls (us..not some random girls..anyways..)
I know he will like this =D
And I hope you do too..
So go buy or stash hunt for some good ol' cross-stitch fabric,
and try it out without a pattern!!
