I'm BACK + Free Kitchen Goddess Embroidery Pattern

Kitchen Goddess Embroidery Pattern
Originally uploaded by digitalmisfit

After a LONG hiatus from blogging, I am back!
A combination of poor health, new medication, and - I will admit - pure laziness has kept me away from my hiding place in cyberspace. I am doing well now, and I hope to make regular posts once again and reconnect with my fabulous readers old and new.

With this first update, I will be releasing my first new hand embroidery pattern, which is the second in my Domestic Goddess series (see this post for my Crafty Goddess pattern).
This Kitchen Goddess was inspired by a new friend from the pagan community. She was in a bit of a tizzy, preparing a dinner one day, so the quote on this particular pattern was her exclamation when she was asked how she has been. We have all had those days where something small just gets in the way of a perfect day, and I think she expressed it perfectly!

Of course, this chef hat and apron adorned Goddess can be stitched up without the quote if you prefer.
I think it would make a lovely gift, stitched up on a tea towel for your favorite kitchen witch, or framed for your favorite chef.
You could even woodburn it into a cutting board for a decorative and practical piece.

Just click on the image to be taken to my Flickr photostream where you can download the file (for best resolution, select Original or Large image size. If you have the new Flickr layout, you will find this option under Actions). If you stitch it up, drop me a note or post it on Flickr with a note so I can see what my crafty friends have been up to. I welcome your comments and suggestions for future Domestic Goddess designs.

As always, this pattern is provided free for your personal use. Please do not sell this pattern or items made using this pattern. You are welcome to post about this pattern on your blog, Facebook, Twitter, etc providing you include a link back to this blog post.

Stay tuned for this weekend's blog update which will include a totally NSFW review of a new toy from my favorite adult toy store, Eden Fantasys !
