I completed this cross stitch last week and I have to say it is my favorite completed project yet.  It took much longer than I had anticipated, about two weeks only working on it on-and-off at work.  The pattern is from Stitch Graffiti: Unexpected Cross-Stitch by Heather Holland-Daly.  I tweaked the pattern just a teeny bit and used colors I had on hand.  I have it framed and hanging in my kitchen and it makes me really happy  Grin


Before ironing


After framing - I really wanted a square frame for this but after going to three stores I could NOT find a square frame in the size I wanted, so I had to settle for this one.

This is one of my favorite sayings for kitchen cross stitch! You did a funky-fun twist on it, too! Smiley

First, the piece is totally bad @$$

Second, thanks for linking the book. I have never heard of this one but if your project is any indication of what to expect, I will be picking it up with my inevitible book store gift card!!!!  Thank you
