First finish of 2014!

I've never stitched anything for my boyfriend. It's not for want of trying...
Many times in the past I've tried to find a chart, or make one myself of something he would like. I really tried quite hard to make a chart for a bobblehead from Fall Out 3...but it was disastrous D:

After seeing the cute Gandalf stitch at Serendipitous Stitching I thought I'd have a mooch at PixelPower...and I found a free chart that would do just nicely.

It's The Dude from The Big Lebowski :)

I decided to make it into a coaster so that he could use it for his desk at work. I had to change the layout of the quote and stitch it over-one to make it fit. I'm really pleased with how it turned out as I epically failed at the maths a few times ^^; My boyfriend really likes it too.


I spent some time today preparing the fabrics I'm going to use in my SAL's, so I'm pretty much good to go! I hope to start work on my Just Nan chart tomorrow. I can't wait to share the fabric I have for the Frosted Pumpkin's brilliantly beautiful *__*


  1. That is AWESOME! If your boyfriend didn't like that, well there would have been no hope for him :P

    *checks out PixelPower*

  2. Great idea you had. I racked up at Zebs comment and I agree with her -LOL. Your coaster came out great.
    love Annette

  4. That's a really cute gift for your boyfriend. Clever girl!
