I know this little proverb has been stitched before, but here's my sort of "make it up as you go along" version. This was made as a birthday gift for my little sis. I picked an alphabet I liked from a thrifted cross stitch book and embellished with some random shapes. The letters happened to fit across in this frame that I had, so I made the rest of the design to fit, as well. It has a blackwork-esque feel, although technically I don't think it's blackwork because stuff isn't connected or anything, so there are a few jumps on the back and the top and bottom borders are strictly cross stitch.



And here are a couple of pics after I had washed and ironed it:

Hell yes, fantastic quote! It can never be done too many times. Great choice of frame as well.

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

Haha, thanks ladies!  This one was fun to make... I might need to make another for myself, even. Smiley
