So I went to Chinatown and bought another cross-stitch kit last year, when they were much cheaper (they used to be two for a dollar, but now they're three dollars each!). Since my first foray into cross-stitching (posted here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=269221.msg3034945#msg3034945
) I haven't completed another project, but then, during a long (and I mean LONG) bus trip to Tennessee, I decided to get down to business. So I finished this during the first day of the trip:
However, there was something missing...(besides their eyelashes, which was the result of me running out of black thread during the trip).
The original package has a picture of what the keychain should look like (I switched the hair color of the two figures, and their positions, and I left out the hearts and flowers):
It called for the back of the keychain to have the words "I love you" on it, but I thought that was too sappy, and after a recent romantic fall-out I was NOT in the mood for sap.
So, I came up with my own sentiment instead:
It came out a bit light, so if you can't read it, it says "What are YOU looking at?"
And then I found some black thread and completed the ensemble
Take THAT, you overly sentimental keychains! Although I have to admit, the figures are cute...
