David's Puzzle - Stitched by Cindy Grady
Cindy's needles have been flying and she has just finished a model for the David's Puzzle pattern from my Etsy shop. This image is a detail from the design - click through to the David's Puzzle pattern page to see the full design.
This chart was named after my Dad and refers to one of those old family stories that became a joke for years to come. My mom was typing a paper for my Dad when they were in college and she sent me to find out what a word he had written was - I can't remember how he spelled the word "puzzle" but it was so poorly done that it was unintelligible.
When I returned with the answer, she said, "Well, that was definitely a puzzle to me." It struck me as funny and I have remembered that event for over 40 years now. I know it is kind of one of those things where you had to be there, but my Dad's spelling was notoriously bad so we always laughed about it.
