subversive stitching

This week’s cross stitch: My Congressman is a Craven Quisling, with bilberries for treason. Special shout-outs to Senators Ted Cruz and John Cornyn and Rep. Bill Flores, the three gutless sycophants representing me in our federal government, and to Merriam-Webster on Twitter for reminding me what a great word “quisling” is.


I was waiting until the book published to share these. I was given an advanced reader copy for the book Bless This Mother-effing Home: Sweet Stitches for Snarky Bitches by Katie Kutthroat. The patterns are delightful, if not necessarily ones I hadn’t seen done in some cases, and I couldn’t resist stitching a few of my own. These were my co-worker’s Christmas presents! It took a couple of weeks to stitch and frame them all, but I’m very pleased with the results.
