I saw a project on the silk screen forum, a shirt with "Nevermore" making the body of a raven, and it inspired me to make this today. I wish I'd started the wording down a couple of stitiches to make it more centered but... live and learn. On the upside, I think the ellipsis comprises the best three french knots I've ever made.

The quote says:

"My soul from out that shadow... shall be lifted - Nevermore"

I'll be giving this away but I'd like to make one for myself too.



Thanks for looking!
