Hello! I have to admit right away that I'm not at my most enthusiastic today, but I got sick of playing Pangya pretty quickly today and can't think of anything more useful than this to do, so it seemed like a nice idea to post to my blog! As many of you have probably already seen, either from the thumbnail in whatever RSS reader you use (if it has thumbnails), or on the status update on the Dork Stitch Facebook page, I do have a new cross stitch pattern for today, featuring Mandy from The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy. I'd been wanting to make a pattern of her for quite a while, since sometimes it seems like the more reprehensible a cute cartoon character is, the better she'd be to use for a craft project. Since Billy and Mandy got put on Cartoon Planet this week, where Cartoon Network shows old cartoons with Brak interstitials for an hour, I was reminded of this goal and started work on today's pattern as soon as I was done watching TV for the night. The pattern for Mandy isn't too exciting, with just a few colors and a relatively small size, but she'd be quick to stitch and excellent for needlepoint or perler beads, which is always a nice advantage. Plus, she looks really irritated, which is as appropriate to the character as any of these patterns get.
