Lauren Steeper (Sheffield, UK) has a cross-stitch game, Lottery Words, and I want to play! It is just the sort of highly ordered and yet completely unnecessary ritual that I love. And it combines crafting and words? So awesome!
To start, she cut every word out of the dictionary and threw them in a jar. That’s right. Every word.
Each week, she:
- Picks 49 words out of the jar at random
- Uses the numbers drawn by the National Lottery to select 6 of the 49 words
- Determines color and font based on the bonus ball
- Cross-stitches the words as her system dictates
