CROSS STITCH PATTERN READY TO DOWNLOAD, DESIGNED BY Tempting Tangles
A humorous reminder that:
"Though shall not dodge, hesitate, shilly-shally, stall, tarry, postpone, dawdle, sidestep or ...Procrastinate"
This pattern by Deborah A. Dick of Tempting Tangles is inspired by a memorable flooding that occurred in her house, and is a playful little warning to those who do laundry and plumbing. The full story appears in the pages of the chart:
Variation: If you want to omit the flooding episode and focus on the pile of laundry awaiting, you can "mend the hoses and wipe up the water drops" from the chart. Then hang this little cross stitch cutie where you are simply reminded to do the laundry.
As with most of Deborah A. Dick's designs, the pattern includes a number of fun needlework details, such as the waterdrops beautifully depicted with fan-stitch.
Newly recharted, the pattern includes an additional color overview and color chart.
