Pucca and Garu II

Remember when I embroidered this for a friend a while back?  Well, I decided that I didn’t like it enough to give to anyone as a gift, so I redid it completely.  I even cross stitched it, which was my original intention!  I gave it, framed, signed, and presented to that friend today and she loved it!  I think it was well timed too, since she just when through a trying break up and needed something cute to distract her.


My only issue was that, in areas with lots of black, the white fabric still shows through.  (This is 14 count Aida.)  See?  I think I’ll be using three strands of black next time…


Also, I got a pile of awesome frames from Goodwill for a dollar each!  This one was an ugly brown, which I tried to spray paint over.  Except I ran out of the plain black halfway through and had to respray them with heat resistant paint…  I think it also caused these strange crackly patterns too, which I really love!  (My frames are also heat resistant to  1200 degrees Farenheit now.)


And finally, because I was so very, very proud of this redo, my signature and the year.


Let this stand as a lesson to me:  Never be too afraid (or lazy) to reapproach a project that I’m just not satisfied with.  It’s worth the effort!

Much love and cute Asian kisses,

ETA (12-13-09):  I’m always willing to email readers a copy of the pattern if they leave a comment on this post or email me directly (or do both!).  However, I’ve found that hotmail email accounts cannot recieve files as large as an average PDF so, when you leave a comment, remember to include a non-hotmail account!  Thank you!

  14. Oh. Okays. Thanks again. I sent you an e-mail already. :)

  15. Hey guys, this is just a note for anyone else who reads this post and would like a copy or the Pucca and Garu cross-stitch pattern.

    When you leave a comment or email me, please, please, do not use a hotmail account! Hotmail isn’t able to accept attachments the size of PDFs and you will not recieve my email or the cross-stitch pattern. Instead, it gets returned to me with an error message, and that’s just not very helpful…

    If you’re looking for a new email provider, I always suggest Gmail! ;)
