Not For The Easily Offended



This book is possibly one of the best books i've bought in a long time, offensive crafts, does it get better then that. I've always been a fan of cross stitch and anything that can make something a little more fun is worth the time. 

The book is full of great one liners, pretty flowers and hearts. It also has an A to Z in cross stitch in the back so your able to come up with your own great inventions. The one above is one I copied out of the book, but since messing about with the different patterns and letters. I'm starting to make my own individual ones, I think there great to frame and dot around your room. 

Sorry this post is a bit random, but I think its great to include some different things on blogs that are not just fashion or make up related. 

What quirky crafts have you gotten into recently?

XOXO
