EDITED: Because the original chart posted here would not print properly, I've converted it to a .pdf file. Thank you all so much for your patience, and I apologize for the inconvenience!
I want to thank all of you who followed me over here to this new blog! I've enjoyed it tremendously so far, and to celebrate I'd like to offer you a pattern to print out. As you may have guessed, two of my favorite things in life (besides Edward Cullen of Twilight fame and love-presents from my mother or sister) are old tombstones and fresh coffee. I ADORE these things, and don't ask me why or I'll have to come up with something that makes me sound normal, and that would be impossible since I'm only halfway through my morning pot o'java. Ask me in another pot or so.
So here you have it: a little something I like to call Coffin Buzz:
If you're a tea-drinker instead, you can easily use the letters in the verse to chart out "TEA," and you can center the line that begins with "Bring me..." by moving the line 11 spaces to the right and starting there. But I would recommend charting it out first on some graph paper, just to avoid any frogging!
Eventually, this tombstone verse will probably end up chiseled in grey stone for me, but for now I'd suggest a good vintage-dyed linen (like Lakeside's Vintage Autumn Gold or something similar) and a nice, coffee (or tea!) -colored fiber. Perhaps DMC 3371 or a silk equivalent. Btw, the stitch count for this chart is 97 (w) x 167 (h).
I hope you enjoy it! And again, thank you so much for supporting me in my designing - and blogging!
