Social distancing is a nice idea, but with so many asymptomatic carriers the only thing that REALLY works for sure is STAYING THE FUCK HOME. If not for yourself, do it for my 95-year-old mom!

So Namastay the fuck home and stitch along with us! This pattern is a free PDF download because it’s something I can contribute–I know there are a lot of you going crazy out there, worrying about money and what’s next. You are not alone. ALSO, there are other free patterns here, so load up! This is also available as a kit, with all the supplies you need to stitch it up without leaving your home (don’t you step out that door!).

The Italians have their balconies to sing along with their neighbors. We’ve got needles and thread and the internet! Join us on Instagram and post your progress with the hashtags #scswip and #subversivecrossstitch or @subversivecrossstitch and I’ll see it for sure.

Oh, and one more thing — the Coronavirus Sanity Guide has been helping me. Maybe you can find something there that helps you, too.

Breathe. Try to relax as you stitch so your hands won’t hurt later. Clear your mind. Oh, and, y’know, STAY THE FUCK HOME! xoxoxo
