This was originally a kit from Joanns, with atrocious color combinations and something cheesy like "Friends Are Forever" in the middle. You wonder why I bought it? Well, me too. But after replacing the provided floss with my own, completely changing the border, and picking a different slogan for the center, I think it's... okay. I'd do things differently if I did it again, but I was kind of making it up as I went along.

I wanted it to say "Love stinks", but alas! I couldn't make it fit.

What a cute idea!!!  I love how it turned out.  Did you use a pattern maker like PC Stitch?

I'm always tempted to buy the cheesy kits and modify them!

Actually, no- I "sort of" used the border provided by the kit, and made it up as I went along in the middle. But it was fun, and you should totally snag a kit the next time you see a cheesy one on sale!
