Embroidery obsessions.. part 1:

The Smiths: "please please please, let me get what i want (this time)" by Chez Sucre Chez
I don't know what is happening, but it seems that embroidery is the latest craze! Everyone seems emboidering away. It's good thing, as embroidery is so much more than a remote traditional handicraft of the past. I guess Sublime Stitching may have started the trend? Chez Sucre Chez handcrafts these lovely pieces of home decor: they're fun, modern and fresh, and probably a joy to make too! Now that the canvas has become the new blank page, it's time to start writing and I was thrilled to find this great tool that enables you to transform text into a cross stitch pattern. I'm tempted by "rock'n roll", "New York New York" or some favourite cool music lyrics or a favourite quote...
