My boyfriends birthday was on Friday and as the game he'd asked for wasn't going to be delivered on time I thought I'd make him a gift for the day. We've been together for 4 years now and I have to admit that I've never been very good at romantic gestures so when I saw lilininjabear's project http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=311126.0
I new it would be the perfect gift.
Although I used to be really keen on cross stitch I've never really done this sort of embroidery so I made it simpler by stitching the background notebook lines on my sewing machine and embroidering the message on afterwards. I'm sure the stitching could be better and I may need to mount it again in the future but this is one project where the the message means more than the finished project. Needless to say Gordon loves it.
