My first go at snarky cross-stitch. I chose a quote from the "Trash" episode of "Firefly," which is yet another totally rad show whose network must have been a darn fool to cancel it.



The font I used can be found at http://www.dunmanidesigns.co.uk/ under the "Motif Library" section.

Hopefully I did this right. I've been a Craftster member for awhile now, but this is my first posted creation Smiley hope you like it!

I have one bookmarked from a fellow Craftster that combines The Oregon Trail and Firefly that I need to *ahem* emulate one day. Cheesy

Well, as a member since '07 glad to see your work. I don't know the reference but I do know good cross stitch. I would love to have that on a bumper sticker. Cool

I'm love, love, loving that border.
My friend lent me the series and Serenity on DVD. I *really* need to finish watching it, I fell in love as soon as I started watching. Awesome piece, you've reminded me to carry on watching, and work on the Firefly piece I was stitching myself. It's in metallic floss, and I was warned what a pain in the bum that stuff is, but would I listen? No...lol. Anyway, great job!

Yeah, Firefly!  Yeah, Joss Whedon!  Another great River line - "I swallowed a bug."  Your piece is great.

P.S. For those of you who haven't seen Firefly (and you all should), it's on Hulu. There. Now you have no excuses... Grin
