"i might walk home alone, but...
yeah, a little something different.
this is, hands down, my favourite smiths line, and i had been wanting to spell it out with my cross-stitched letters for quite some time. i needed to make more letters, though, and i just knew that i wasnt going to get to it any time too soon.
so i tried it this way.
i've not been so interested in doing cross-stitched sayings or whatever; samplers, yes, but little wall-hangings with mottos or sayings or quotes hasnt interested me so much. it's been done, and it just doesn't excite me, but i had to give it a whirl just to be sure.
the letters look pretty, but i don't think this is something that i will be doing a lot of...
maybe i will whip up a few for some of the up-coming craft fairs... maybe.
giving credit where credit is due, my desire to actually make this project happen was re-awakened by tiffany, who wrote to me and asked if i had done the wall-hanging in emily-black-apple's house. that smiths quote wasn't stitched up by me -- i am pretty sure that is emily's handiwork -- and so i was inspired and emboldened to stitch up my own smiths love by these two lovely ladies.
