Pattern 7 Eve: Where Things Stand

The white is o’er, the battle done.

Here’s some white white WIPS as we head into the final two stages of #Steotchalong 2014.


And then there’s the smug few who picked a darker aida, and have been laughing their asses of this whole time…

And then there’s just plain overconfidence…

See you tomorrow, little beotches.

Home stretch!

Steotch Watch: Patterns 2 from around the web

You guys are, like, the Michael Jordan of guessing wrong.  Pattern 3 will probably clear some things up.


Pattern 3 coming your way tomorrow…

A Quick Note Before We Begin

It’s Steotchalong Eve Eve.YALL

In the last few days, we’ve received notes from stitchers around the world preparing their stashes for what’s to come (such pressure, very anxiety). And, by the way, if you haven’t added your name to the roll call you should get on that.

Some of you are already asking for hints, which is cute. We won’t get into the business of acknowledging your guesses until we’re well into this thing and everyone’s pretty much figured out what you’re stitching (and by the way – you’ll all THINK you’ve got it totally figured out pretty quickly, but don’t be so sure until the last day).

You’re going to have to trust us on this one.

But allow us to say one thing quickly about the content of this piece. Some of you have made comments to the effect of how you just found Steotch because of the stitch-along. That’s great! Welcome! If you’re new here, PLEASE take a moment to familiarize yourself with our portfolio – while we won’t say what this pattern will be, you can safely assume it will be in the spirit of the rest of our, uh, oeuvre. It might contain themes that are more mature or snarky than you might expect from cross stitch. It also might just be a really stupid joke. It might be both.

Guys, let’s just be safe and assume it’s both.

We’ll post an official discussion thread (ha!) for each pattern, so you can tawk amongst yourselves while you get your spinster on.

Please note that we have added a consequence for failure. Any miscounted stitches will result in an unsatisfactory mark on your official record. Followed by death.

Two days…
