I just finished this piece this morning and had to share, so sorry that it has that fresh off the hoop look.
I'm not an expert by any means on cross stitch, and I'm pretty sure I may have made up a few stitches along the way, but overall I'm very, very pleased with it. I free handed the piece (I think next time I'll definitely plan out the lettering), only using reference points for the grenade. The grenade is definitely my favorite!
This piece is a direct result of this song being stuck in my head for months, and me having an aha! moment and realizing it would be awesome as an embroidered piece. Now I think I may do the rest of the chorus.
Oh and the technical stuff: done on 14 count black aida (it kind of looks blue in the picture), using 3 strands of floss.
The song is: "Grenade" by Bruno Mars
Here's the music video for anyone who is interested: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SR6iYWJxHqs
