Crafting Horrors

A favorite Friday afternoon only-an-hour-to-go-at-work activity is to scan Hoffmandis for new cross stitch patterns. Today's winner is entitled

Pushing Up Daisies



What morbid serial killer thought up this treasure? Look! I see Squeaky and Tweety and Rover and Goldy and Fluffy and Boxy and Fabio -- all artistically laying upside-down in their little pet cemetary while a cheerful daisy alphabet grows and butterflies taunt them from the land of the living.

I'll be hanging this one right next to my homage to Lizzie Borden.

I vote for pattern #1~~nothing like cross stiching the family pets taking a dirt nap and pushing up dasies!

hmm, where to start?
I love the cross stitch of death!
I loved the SouthPark before the election, because I pretty much felt that was the choice between the TS and the GD months ago...
I'm glad that Fabio has settled down since he made that other rabbit "happy" bwah!
I believe in Red Pens. They were freely used, and approval at home was granted only when the red pen wrote 100% or "A". It is my opinion that a reason why 37% of my fellow TunaLaw Grads failed The Test is because they didn't have enough red pens in their backgrounds.
When is the Saint-Saens?

I've not picked up cross stitch in an embarassingly long time.

But these designs really tempt me...

I must be really warped - Pushing up Daisies made me laugh out loud! It's going on my Christmas list *evil laugh*.....
