Cross stitch paving!

This afternoon, quickly before the family got home, I decided to commit an act of guerrilla art and chalked a cross stitch pattern on my driveway!
I used a filet crochet graph of a rose, bud and leaf as my guide!
I enjoyed the giant pavement chalk I bought a while ago and have been itching to use! I plan to try it out again!
Do you think anyone will guess it was me?

You

U-nique.

My, what fun it must be living with you.
I love the child-memory sense of hopscotch, and the sense of patterns within patterns.

How cute! I remember scribbling around on the pavement as a kid but I never thought about doing this again now that I'm older. Cool idea for summer :)
