How'd I miss this?

I've had a piece of cross stitch sitting on the table by my green chair for more than a year now, collecting bunny fur. The stitching is finished, but I haven't figured out a way to frame it properly.

I was originally submitting it to The AntiCraft after the Beanis* (adult themes). I submitted a chart, but I never quite did a proper submission. I procrastinated and procrastinated, and I assumed they gave up on me.

So I feel a little ashamed of myself every time I see that piece of cross stitch.

But today I was Googling myself (come on, everyone does it) and I came across this.

It's been two years, and I just realized my pattern had been published as a surprise.

I feel pretty dumb. And yet, I'm relieved. That piece of cross stitch won't bother me anymore.

I just need to frame it.

That's hilarious. They didn't even tell you??? I used to have a lovely needlepoint I designed that said "Life Is Rough" -- it followed me for years, through dorm rooms and grad student apartments.

Belated congrats on your publication!
