“…and pretend you’re laughing at it.”

I came across this great cross stitch pattern from Black Books (which, if you like funny things and have Netflix, you should watch).:

It reminds me of a project idea I had back when I first found pixystitches on Etsy.  That was to take a hilarious line from the first episode and make it into a cross stitch sampler.  That line is “Add a drop of lavender to your milk, leave town with an orange, and pretend you’re laughing at it.” (If your wondering if that means anything in the context of the show, while there’s an explanation for it, there’s no meaning.)  It also makes me happy that there are other people  who appreciate Black Books and needlework at the same time.

I definitely plan on making the Black Books one I came up with at some point, but before that, I should probably do some others and, you know, learn how to cross stitch properly.  I know the stitch, because it’s just embroidery, but the pictures are formed differently, so it is a slightly different skill.  I did buy some fabric yesterday made for cross stitch samplers…and six of pixystitches’s designs….so hopefully I’ll have something cool to show soon.
