Today's stitch is S for:
adjective - costing a lot of money
origin - early 17th century from the Latin expendere (to pay out) and the English expend (lavish and elegant)
This is a very subjective adjective though. What is expensive to one person, may just be pocket money to another.
Here are a selection of charts which depict expensive items:
Promessa by AAN
Bugatti Veyron Caricature by Stitchtastic
Versailles At Night by Classic Cross Stitch
My personal Ss include:
Swansea - a place I called home for three years during my university days. I loved it there and still reminisce about it a lot.
scrapbooking - a very serious hobby for a few years between my break from cross stitching. I was hoping to fit both into my life but my needles are constantly pulling me away. No doubt I shall return to it one day.
And my finished S piece is:
Sepia Baby by Vervaco
Stitched as a birth sampler for my daughter, this was my first venture into sepia tones and I loved it! There are only a few colours but it was so soothing to stitch.
See you tomorrow for a very easy T.
