Finished Project: Let’s Blow this Popsicle Stand

It’s already August; I can hardly believe it. The summer here in Portland has been very strange — cold and rainy for so much of June and July that it almost feels as though we haven’t had a summer yet at all. Hasn’t stopped me from eating popsicles, though, or from designing and stitching this popsicle cross stitch.

This is one of my favorite ways to say “let’s go,” but I have never heard it used seriously. It is almost too ridiculous. There are also many variants: blow this pop stand, blow this hotdog stand, blow this popcorn stand. So many stands to blow!

I backed it with part of a variegated orange print that I got in a fat-quarter pack from Joann. It was the most popsicle-y fabric I had.

The pattern for this one is available on Etsy, as is the completed hoop.
