Home Sweet Home

When I first saw Satsuma Street's patterns, I was in love. The only problem? I hadn't been to any of the cities she'd created. So I waited, patiently (or not so patiently) for her to create any of my favorite cities. And then, one magical day, I discovered not one, but two!

I already had all of the supplies I needed on-hand, because when I was younger, my mom used to cross stitch. She seemed to enjoy it, but there weren't really any modern designs out there that attracted me. Until this one. 

This project was certainly a labor of love (with a long, less love-filled pause between start and finish). Cross stitch takes TIME, guys. Lots of and lots of time. Thankfully, I think it was worth it. This design now graces the wall in my sewing room, and I've got my next project all lined up. 

On an unrelated note, I'm starting to sell of some of my crafting supplies on Instagram. Follow @forwhoitsfor_sale to see all of the goodies. First up: 40s and 50s sewing patterns!
