I’d like to be working on my hairy pony today, but I’ve been sick and I’m too brain dead and tired to do much besides methodically cross stitch while watching TV. So today’s post is mostly just a picture of a cross stitch I finished recently for a friend:
The pattern for the pony is from a great book I got out of the library called Picture Your Pet in Cross Stitch by Claire Crompton. I lifted the tail and added the pooh myself. Cross stitch has endless possibilities for humor because the medium lends such an air of truth, nostalgia and dignity and yet you can stitch anything, from pooping ponies to rude sayings.
And in case you haven’t already seen it- cute pony in the news.
