A few weeks ago, I settled on designing some skull coasters for this weekend. I drew out my skull stitch pattern on some grid paper - 3 different ones to be exact, and then I worked up a base to cross stitch into. As soon as I was done with my stitching, I turned my head and looked at my finished coaster, and I did not see a skull… I saw an alien! I think with some tweaking, it can definitely be a spooky skull, but I thought the idea of an alien was quite amusing! And so fun! And still a little spooky.
