A few weeks ago I spotted a kid's drawing on the bulletin board of my favorite Irish pub.  The second I saw it I knew that it had to be stitched.


I whipped this up as a little gift for my favorite Publicans on St. Patrick's Day.


I used an old sheet that had long ago been cut into 13in. squares for embroidery.  I stitched it up with DMC floss, 3 strands for the top line of writing and 6 strands for everything else.  I used my trusty ol' crayolas to tint it and I glued the whole thing into a 12 inch wooden embroidery hoop.

Remember the time he ate my goldfish and you lied to me and said I never had a goldfish? Then why'd I have the bowl Bart?

Why.

Did I Have.

The Bowl??

Thank you!  I felt the same way about the original drawing.  I had to restrain myself from stealing it off the bulletin board at the bar.  I might have to make one for myself too.

The original drawing is awesome and your interpretation of it is even more awesome. Kids are so weird - I love that about them Smiley.
