Letter S

Back to the swing of things with Letter S! I think she will be done in a couple more Saturdays. :)
I may or may not have a gripe. What is with all the patriotic patterns? Especially patriotic patterns that are in a series. I think that is super ignorant to all the stitchers out there who don't live in the U.S.A. I was looking at the Cottage Series and surprise surprise, July is Patriotic. So I guess Canadians and Aussies and New Zealanders and well, pretty much everywhere else that's not AMERICA will have to change the colours and the flag. Does it even come with conversions for other countries, or even another house designed for the rest of us non-Americans?

I don't mind the patriotic patterns that are one offs. But this is a series and people making them should probably have something a little more country neutral. Anyone who has a TV and access to the internet should be well aware at this point that there is more to the world out there than just the country we live in. Designers should think about that.

Reading over that, it sounds a lot more snarky than intended, but I'm leaving it the way it is. :D

I have been working on Follow Me throughout the week, and I'm actually hoping that I run out of the Belle Soie thread I'm using so I have an excuse to order more.. and order some of the things on my 123 wishlist at the same time haha. :) 

I think that is it for now :)


  1. S is looking good! I admit I was a bit disapointed when I saw the July cottage - still going to stitch them sometime, but will (obviously) be changing that one up a bit. It does seem a little thoughtless, even just from an international-sales perspective for the designer!

  2. Not snarky at all. It is a really good point. I find the same thing with their patriotic red, white and blue designs. Our flag is the same colours and so is the British flag. It annoys me. Now I've had my grizzle.....Letter S is looking fabulous! I think you should order the Belle Soie thread and other bits and pieces from your wishlist now. For one thing it aids recovery from the global economic crisis. The other thing is....I know this is a long way off, but you need to be prepared....saving for your retirement. It's important! *nods sincerely* You need to start saving now!

  3. ooo your letter s is looking good .... :) I'm doing the cottages and must admit was a wee bit disappointed but hey ho can change to suit me .. but it is a totally relevant gripe
    love mouse xxxx
