The back office at my work is small, deeply in need of repair, and generally depressing.  I thought that it needed a bit of cheering up, and nothing cheers up a room like an ironic, overly elaboratly framed cross stitch.


Ta da!  There you have it, solid proof that I work way too much.  I made it in the store colours and everything.

How sad some us have to work in dreary places for most of the day.  I like the bright colors you picked out and the frame is great!  Did you put glass over it?

Yes, I did put glass over it.  It didn't show up in the picture for some reason. Smiley

Nice work!  And the frame is gorgeous!  I don't think there's enough ornate frames out there for us cross stitchers...
