The Final Final Countdown

Okay - I fell a bit behind. So here are the last 8 days, in your face all at once. It's even better that way isn't it? Enjoy and hope everyone had a great holiday. I picked up some really cool stuff while I was in Wisconsin that I can't wait to get started on. (i.e. hot pink metallic thread, say what? awesome.)

These go to eleven. My tribute to Spinal Tap. (FC Day 6!)

Nigel Tufnel: The numbers all go to eleven. Look, right across the board, eleven, eleven, eleven and...
Marty DiBergi: Oh, I see. And most amps go up to ten?
Nigel Tufnel: Exactly.
Marty DiBergi: Does that mean it's louder? Is it any louder?
Nigel Tufnel: Well, it's one louder, isn't it? It's not ten. You see, most blokes, you know, will be playing at ten. You're on ten here, all the way up, all the way up, all the way up, you're on ten on your guitar. Where can you go from there? Where?
Marty DiBergi: I don't know.
Nigel Tufnel: Nowhere. Exactly. What we do is, if we need that extra push over the cliff, you know what we do?
Marty DiBergi: Put it up to eleven.
Nigel Tufnel: Eleven. Exactly. One louder.
Marty DiBergi: Why don't you just make ten louder and make ten be the top number and make that a little louder?
Nigel Tufnel: [pause] These go to eleven.

Final Countdown - DAY 3

So I suppose by "Countdown" is really more so of a "Countup" - but whatevs. Here's the third installment. Awe.

When someone is being beyond annoying, pompous or down right nasty - and you need to express yourself to this person. Let this little ditty do the job for you.

It's the Final Countdown - DAY 1

**Insert Europe's sweet "Final Countdown" intro here**

So, it's a countdown to the New Year. And I'm going to kick it by posting a cross stitchery a day. Some old and some new - who knows what is in store. Excited? I'm sure you are. Let's begin with a seasonal favorite...

"Final Countdown" music-awesomeness**

In the spirit of the holidays I will also be posting some of my patterns for downloading. They are nothing fancy or technical - but they pretty much rule. Just click on image to view larger pattern - and drag to desktop or right-click and save to desktop. Cheers!

Now make someone near and dear to you a kick ass mixed tape.
