11  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Lost themed anniversary present? on: March 02, 2011 12:02:35 PM
When Lost came back from its ridiculously long hiatus in 2009, I had to discuss the episode with someone.  Since none of my friends watched the show, and my family was unable to watch it that night, I resorted to texting a semi-friend from college who graduated the year before since he was the only person I knew that would be watching the episode.  I texted "Faraday<3" and after that throughout the entire episode (and season) we kept the conversation going until we eventually started dating.  

So thanks to Daniel Faraday and his awesomeness, I will be celebrating my two year anniversary coming up.  In order to fully thank him, I wanted to immortalize his name ("Faraday <3") into an embroidery hoop for my boyfriend's present, however I am not sure how I should do it.

I am considering either plainly stitching his (Faraday's) name (heart included) or stitching it inside the Dharma sign similar to below.



I do enjoy simplicity because the focus is on the word, but at the same time I do like the Dharma sign too.  Thoughts?

Thanks everyone!  It is now hanging proudly in my coworker's cube waiting to be framed.  Cheesy

This is my largest project yet and first time using a scroll frame!  An interesting experience...

Some guy at work found out that I enjoyed cross stitching and asked me to make him something, so I agreed.

This conversation took place in 2009.  Lol.

After procrastinating, moving twice and experiencing new sets of roommates, the dragon is finally finished!  Ironically I despise dragons but i will admit... I'll miss staring at this thing for long hours into the night.

Finished size: 11x14
39 colors
14 Aida
106x145 stitches



by the way, in reference to a previous thread on here... I am pretty sure the chinese symbol says "dragon"  Cheesy

^I agree with this.

Adornata is easier to remember and less likely to be misspelled.  Smiley

Maybe you can use one of the latin phrases as a slogan to accompany your company name?  If you made a website, it could appear underneath your logo.
