I haven't tried cross stitch since I was about 16. I was always unimpressed by the patterns available, too cutesy or too middle aged, but after discovering exactly how creative, edgy and interesting modern embroidery can be (thanks to Crafster, MrXstitch, Subversive crossstitch, etc) I was inspired to try again.
So here is my mini tribute to my favourite Scottish expletive.

It's only wee, about 1"x1.5" made to fit this tiny charity shop frame.
I've already completed a couple of larger things this week and I'm getting quite obsessed!

*thumbs up*
Looking forward to seeing what else you make! Stitching is awesomely addictive.

Also, nice find with the frame! How much did it cost?
