Three shall be the number that thou shalt count and the number of the counting shall be three! This Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch was used by King Arthur to defeat the Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog during his quest for the Holy Grail. For reference see the Monty Python film adaptation of this age old story.

I am the craftiest daughter of a very crafty mother. She taught me a lot of crafty basics when I was young. In k-12, I used to get in trouble for drawing on my schoolwork. Later on I picked up a paintbrush and taught myself how to paint. For a brief period in college, I played with a computer based paper doll program (kisekae) and I got quite handy with a mouse. Today, I use my chronic doodling habit to develop cross stitch and embroidery patterns. I'm taking a break from designing patterns to work on a crazy quilt project. There are several new embroidery designs that I'm developing for this project. When it's done, I will work on publishing them as patterns here.
