"I Hate Everything"

Just kidding! But that's the theme of this adorable yet snarky cross-stitch, my newest completed project. I got the pattern from The Purple Hippo's etsy shop, and I'm so glad I did. I say this all the time! The piece just makes me smile, though. I especially love the juxtaposition of the dour message with the pink bunnies and the blue heart. The colors in this piece are really vibrant and jewel-like. I'm not sure the photos really captures the colors correctly. I think I'm going to do another version of this pattern using the same colors in different places - maybe blue text, a pink heart, orange bunnies and purple flowers? I think so!
The second photo is of the back of the piece, so you can see how neat and tidy my stitching is... or isn't.
I was initially a little stressed when I started this pattern, because it was charted in 10 count graph paper. And I was like "oh noes but I am using 14 count Aida!". But I found this fabric calculator, which solved the problem! Apparently most patterns are charted on 10 count graph paper, so that calculator and I are going to become fast friends.
Next up: a piece I charted myself, using this alphabet. We'll see how that goes! It's super difficult to center all the text. We'll see how it turns out.
