Don't you hate it when your luck seems to have disappeared off the side of the earth? When you are wondering if it is plotting against you.. No worries I have made the perfect little cross stitch to make you smile.. This is one of my favorite sayings when I have no luck at all.. No Dice.. The border I picked was from an older pattern book.. I really thought it looked very neat and stuck true to some classic cross stitch designs.. Hope you like it!
