This cross stitch took me 6 months to make, and was the 2nd attempt. Originally i had done it in 30 different shades of grey, was nearly finished, then fell asleep next to it and rolled onto it, and my purple hair completely wrecked it. I cried.

I showed it to them when i had just finished the outline and they liked it Smiley Shawn laughed at me, because he tried to pick it up and i screamed "DONT TOUCH IT!!" because they had just finished playing and he was all sweaty, and i didn't want to have to start again for a 3rd time!

This is the original drawing, it was drawn by the bassist Justin.

This is amazing! And I second whoever complimented your color choice.

Remember the time he ate my goldfish and you lied to me and said I never had a goldfish? Then why'd I have the bowl Bart?


Did I Have.

The Bowl??

This is actually a reply to the "I wish I could keep my eyes open in pictures".  One of my daughters has the same problem.  A photographer finally told her to blink really hard and tight right before the picture is taken.  Tell the person taking the picture to watch for that to happen and to snap the pic when you open your eyes.  It's worked every single time for her, she has no more squinchy eyed pictures.  Of course, make sure to have your pretty smile in place before you open your eyes.  Good luck, maybe it will work for you too.
