Not your thing? Then alter it!

All this "Poeness" got me thinking...
*dangerous thing thinking*
In the past I have collected/bought old sewing kits,
 not because I liked the image printed, but to use
the threads....
which left me with bits of pre printed Aida
like this one

*it virtual told me what to stitch....P9-3 could read as  POE*
So I found an image and printed it out to use as a guide...
 Stitching over a pre print is quite distracting...
 so dear Mr Poe looks a bit "squiffy" at the 
but the fun of "making up" your own pattern is
that you can keep altering it :D
Maybe I'll be done in time for his next anniversary lol
Enjoy XXX
