subversive stitches

It's Thursday and I'm being thrifty in real life, just not here. Carol and I had some great finds yesterday (hoping for more today). We got so caught up in activity that I never got this posted.

Carol's in town to celebrate Jen's new book, Pretty in Plaid. We'll be heading to the Barnes & Noble on Clybourn for the Chicago signing this evening. I've done a little homage to Jen's favorite word in celebration of the new book. It's a bonus that the border compliments the book jacket. (Pattern from Subversive Cross Stitch)

When I finished, I really wanted to stitch one of my favorite words, but putting it up in my studio wasn't really appropriate with the kids and students down there on occassion. This will have to do. Plus, I can just fill in the blank with whatever's appropriate at the moment.

My husband loves these subversive cross stitch patterns...I think I should take that as a request to make one for him :)
