You may have heard by now via enews, FB or Twitter that I’m having a contest for a new phrase. I’ve gotta say this is truly the most fun thing I’ve done in a long time. You guys are REALLY hilarious smart-asses! I have no idea how I’ll decide on one winner, so I’m thinking of a way to have a kind of honor court of winners… more than just a first-place prize. I LOVE it, please keep ’em comin’! Here’s the low-down on the contest in case you didn’t see it:
I really liked the squirrel phrase that became the PDF pattern. Since that one was suggested by one of you & is something I never would have thought of, how about a little contest to see what else is in your collective genius? Email me your phrase idea and if it’s the best of the bunch, you’ll win a $50 gift certificate!
Deadline is Tuesday, June 5th & I’ll announce the winner on the 6th, then turn the phrase into a PDF available on the site. I hope your thinking cap comes with air conditioning!
A little gift for you to play with: three font charts you can download for free from our PDF shop. Available in either PDF or as PC Stitch files–that means you can download them and rearrange, cut and paste in PC Stitch! There will be more, but here are three to start. Enjoy!
New pattern for Father’s Day to match the Mother’s Day MOM Tattoo. This one’s got a bird!
I found these little gadgets today, and they also have a lot of cell phone case kits as well. So cute, wish I could offer them here. I wonder if people will use them? It doesn’t seem like people stick cute things in their phones outside of Japan, but maybe I’m wrong.

In case you’re not familiar with our Flickr group, here’s the deal. It’s a great place to share your creations, both SCS and your originals. Also, the latest images from the group show up across the bottom of my home page (go ahead, look, I’ll wait!)
I go through the pool of images now and then and mark favorites, add comments and get inspiration! If something really strikes me, I’ll share it and possibly any associated Etsy shop or website on the SCS Facebook and Twitter feed. So, you know, share the goodies!
I’m always asked for recommendations for other sites that have subversive-y patterns or work for sale, and I always direct them to the Flickr pool.
Not into Flickr anymore? You can also share stuff through Twitter or Instagram by adding the hashtag #subversivecrossstitch. I look at that stuff, too.
However you do it, I love seeing what you’re up to–it keeps me going and it usually really cracks me up, too. Show and tell!!
I get some weird ones – the last one was “Try To Develop Your Own Personality”, which I eventually turned into a cross stitch pattern. I wonder what new hobby my flamboyant personality will get me into THIS time! Stay tuned, you’ll be the first to know.
I know, it’s about time! Made this for a friend and forgot to scan it before it was gone, so I took a quick photo in the car en route. Oops!
I added portable scissors and acrylic coasters to the Supply shop!
There are always dogs grousing in the background!
