Learn to stitch 12 designs inspired by your favorite sassy seniors! Includes materials to make two projects!
If you think about it, The Golden Girls and cross-stitch are two things that were kind of made for each other: they’re both delightful, a bit snarky sometimes, a touch old school, and can make you laugh out loud when you least expect it. Pretty perfect, right?
So, whether you grew up watching The Golden Girls like I did or you discovered the joys of not-quite-retirement Miami much more recently, you’ve almost certainly decided which character you are—I identified as a Sophia pretty early on—and you can probably already label each of your friends as a Blanche, a Rose, a Dorothy, or a Sophia. Does that sound familiar? Well, welcome to the club! You’re clearly one of us, and this book is for you. (You should also know that we’ll be serving cocktails and cheesecake on the lanai at 5 p.m.)
The patterns in this book were designed for The Golden Girls fans by a Golden Girls fan and are meant to warm your heart and make you giggle.
The finished projects also make fun, thoughtful gifts to give to your very truest pals and confidants. Stitch up a Blanche for the Blanche in your life, send a subtle threat with a Shady Pines sampler, or use the Dorothy pattern to tell the world just exactly how you really feel. There’s a project for all moods and a Golden Girl for every personality!
What are you waiting for?
Go ahead and pull up a chair, re-watch some of your favorite episodes, and cross-stitch your cares away. Because, no matter how long your The Golden Girls marathon lasts, if you’re stitching, you’re still being productive. And, besides, I’m pretty sure that Sophia would approve of a bit of repetitive needle stabbing, and I know that Rose would never, ever dream of judging you!
