Quotes, Quotes, Quotes Swap

We are now home from the USA and I have about six million photos I could share with you from our trip and I  will do that eventually - but its going to take a while. So here's a selfie that we took on Waikiki Beach. I was the only person on the beach wearing skeletons - because I'm cool.
Rather than blogging all about the USA, I thought I'd share what I made for the most recent craft swap I did. The theme of the swap was "quotes, quotes, quotes" - simply you had to make something based about one of the quotes your partner gave you. My partner gave me a long list which included "anything from Scooby Doo". I've basically ALWAYS been a Scooby fan, so as soon as I saw that I knew where I was going with the swap.

Next step - to find a Scooby cross stitch pattern - turns out I found the perfect one on Esty (as always). The quote I chose was "I would have gotten away with it, too, if it wasn't for you meddling kids!". I really loved the font on the design and it was a lot of fun to cross stitch the various characters. Velma was always my favourite character of the Scooby gang and I'm pretty convinced her glasses are the best thing about this cross stitch.
This is by far my favourite cross stitch of the year and it was hard to sent it away to its new home in the USA!
Hope you are all doing well - I'm off to try and sew a dress in time for Armageddon - have a good weekend all xo.

Welcome back! I'm looking forward to hearing all about your holiday. The photos I saw on Instagram looked awesome! More people need to wear skeletons on the beach! And that cross stitch is the cutest! You'll have to make another one for yourself. xx

Hope you had a brilliant holiday - I'm pretty sure you did! Welcome home.
That cross stitch is brilliant - my daughter was looking at the screen over my shoulder and just exclaimed "oh that's soooo cool!" xxx
