I have wanted to stitch the Cross-Eyed Cricket design above for years. I finally started and finished it this week. My husband does not approve. When we were dating and he discovered I was an avid cross stitcher, he was not pleased. It was not that he was worried I would be stitching and never clean the house (that IS what he should have worried about), he was apparently scarred in the 80's by visions of cross stitched geese with blue ribbons around their necks advertising mottos such as "Backdoor guests are best." I had to solemnly promise to love, cherish and never cross stitch geese. Well, lucky for him my tastes are not 1980s. They are more like 1680s, 1780s and 1880s! He divides designs into two categories: "nice" and "goofy crap." The above design he deems "goofy crap." Too bad for him! I like it!
