Well, first, I am not a  Beatles fan at ALL, so this might not really resemble the band very accurately. My sister loves them, and I wanted to make something for her new apartment, so I made this.

The letters are multi-colored metallic thead and there's some silver in there, it's a lot more sparklytastic in person Wink

I'm not going to post the chart for it because it's not mine to post; I just imported some icons (http://www.members.shaw.ca/korinchan/adoptee/beatles.html) into PCStitch and changed them a little. I did the logo in photoshop straight from the album cover, then imported it to PCStitch

That's a pretty awesome!  I like how it is the essence of the Beatles without being exactly like them. 

I would be thrilled to receive!

Now the wintertime is coming,
The windows are filled with frost.
I went to tell everybody,
But I could not get across.
Well, I wanna be your lover, baby,
I don't wanna be your boss.
Don't say I never warned you
When your train gets lost.

Even though I'm more of a Rolling Stones fan, I gotta admit that is one cool piece of embroidery!

thanks everyone for all of the comments!!!
My sister received it in the mail the other day and seemed pretty giddy about it, which is good because I was paranoid she would think I'm insane Wink

I keep thinking I should do this with other bands, or other people, if I do I'll definitely post about it!
