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

I made this for retroeva for a swap. The best part about it-it glows in the dark.


It says:
As you are now
So once was I
As I am now
So you must be
So prepare for Death
And follow me.

Great job with the period style tombstone!  I love the really old ornate stones and general death art.  That's one of my favorite inscriptions too. 

The glow in the dark floss really and truly makes it full of awesome!  I love glow in the dark stuff.  Cheesy

How did you come up with the idea to make it?

Looking to de-stash cross stitch magazines, particularly Cross Stitch Gold or New Stitches?  Please drop me a line!  I'd love to swap or buy some missing from my library!

As soon as I saw the thumbnail, I knew exactly the tombstone you picked, it's classic (if tombstones can be classic hehe).  Awesome, awesome job, I love this !
