i got an itiching to stitch this one up last night -- and so i did...
this was the first smiths quote that i ever wanted to stitch, and i did - last year - a much different version of it, which now lives with jess. it's really one of my very very favourite smiths lines, so i happily stitched it again.
i am really liking this series! originally i had intended to do these in traditional cross-stitch lettering, to make them look like old-fashioned samplers but with these quirky smiths quotes instead of the regular ABC123's and bible quotes. but i am very much liking this modern-feeling handwriting-esque font for these pieces... i dont know how many i more i can do without getting tired of the font - they do look quite similar. i do, however, have some new colored aida cloth that i am eager to play with -- i think the next of these will be dark lettering on grey fabric... now what other quotes should i use? i've got plenty of ideas, but i'd love to hear some of yours!
(ps -- i've put these pieces in the shop -- click on over if you're interested.)
