My wife, who cross stitches (very slowly) says she will do a tiki for me (and the bar)if I provide her with a pattern. I could get out the graph paper and try to create something. This would be the pure thing to do. But I was wondering if anyone had something already to go. How about it?

I'm pretty sure there are shareware programs that'll create cross-stitch patterns for you based on an image you load. That could be ideal since it'll provide your wife with clear symbols and maybe even floss #s. It's been a long time since I've looked, but I'm pretty sure they're out there.

Humuhumu,
Thanks for the tip. I'll check it out tomorrow when I'm a bit sharper. Hey, is this Northwest rain about driving you up the wall?

Not yet... I'm a native -- the only time the rain got to me was a few years back when we had 96 days of rain in a row. The wind is making me crazy, though, we're on top of a hill and when it's windy, all the windows rattle. One of these days a tree is gonna crash into the house. Last night a tree came down on one of my coworker's cars. They're out to get us!

Hell, I'm a native. Actually, the rain doesn't get to me. It's when you go about three weeks straight without seeing the sun. That is hard.
Humuhumu, if you live on a hill you might want to check out the beyond tiki thread "jet-age homes" (or something like that.)

That's why I left my hometown of Hamburg, a lovely place, but climate-wise the Seattle of Germany: Always rainy AND windy, so the saying there is "Here it rains up your pants".

Hee hee hee! What is it about the word "pants" that makes it so funny?

Aloha friends!
I found this in an old Mexican magazine, the company still sell the pattern and the material to do it for 15$ dollars.

Notice the dog Tiki next to Betty Boop. (What's the name of Betty's dog?)
Who wants one?

That is a really lovely image! The colors, especially the hibiscus flowers, are dead-on period. The dog was Pudgy,I believe. Funny Pudgy totem-tiki...

Here's a needle point pillow I found back in 2005. It measures 9" x 7".
It has no label so I don't know if it was made commercially or was a hobby kit. Maybe someone else has one and knows the answer.

Sublime Stitching sells quite simple patterns that provide nice embellishments for towels and the likes. Here's a link for their tiki sheet:

And the Sublime patterns are SUPER easy. I did a series of bar towels for a friend using their tiki patterns a few years ago and STILL get compliments on them.

Those are fabulous! I need another crafting project like I need another hole in the head, but I may not be able to resist...
