A little background first. My friends say I tend to say weird stuff. (I don't agree  Wink) So, whenever I catch them looking at me like I'm from another planet, I always blame it on the rats in my head. That leads to me having to tell them why that rat thought that the statement needed to be said. Hour long rat stories have come out of this and it has stuck. I have to have to try to remember all the rat stories and names cause they have to be repeated for everyone with the demand, "Tell her about Rupert! Tell her why he got to be in charge for the day!" I love my rats! The LYM is Love you more.

Ok. It is 11x14 and on canvas cause it's what I had. I took the pics before I trimmed it up. There's back stitch, stem stitch, satin stitch, and a couple french knots. It's only the second thing I've done and my first satin stitch (and it shows). The font is just my handwriting.



The rat.


The brain.


The heart.


Closer ups.
