Greetings, my little rump roasts!

I have been MIA for a while now, but I’m trying to get back in the swing of things.  If you want to know the nitty gritty details behind my absence, you can read this here blog post.

Since the holidays are swiftly coming upon us, I figured I needed to design some ornament patterns.  Since I’m not really happy that it’s already mid-November, I decided to express my distaste in the cutest way possible:  Unsweetened Sweets!  Basically this gives me an excuse to make food with a face and be grumpy SIMULTANEOUSLY.  WOO!

The first unhappy sweetie is a candy cane.

bite me

heheheh!!  This little guy measures in at about 1.75 inches if you use 14-count Aida, about 1.5 on 16-count (at least I think that’s what I’m using.. it might be 18) and works up in an hour or so.

Click here to download the pattern in a handy-dandy PDF format.  I am working on a tutorial on how to turn him into an ornament or broach using a resin cameo setting, but I messed up the first one and now have to do it over.  WHOOPS.  More information later!



Sarah wants to know how everything works. She also has a short attention span and is addicted to coffee. Those two things are probably not mutually exclusive.
