I'm going to frame it and put it on my wall. For some reason that phrase never ceases to amuse me even though it can get a little over played. I still laugh every time.

...or he said.

Sorry for the shameless Michael Scott addition to your awesome piece.

I love the font, bith the style you chose and the execution. When I first saw the thumbnail pic I thought this was a cross stitch piece with the lettering done in back stitch because you did such an amazing job with keeping everything straight and well lined up, something I personally find easy to achieve with cross stitch and very difficult with embroidery. Wow I hope that came across as the long winded kudos I was trying to make!

anyway, great job!

I'll agree with James here, that stitched lettering really is a job well done!
It's a shame the picture doesn't do it justice really, because it looks really cool.
Put some more pics up!  Grin

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
