I am doing a weird, eclectic dance of happiness inside as I picked up this sucker from the framers later yesterday:

This is a super-secret stitching project that I am planning to give the man for our anniversary in early June.  After many, many days of getting up EARLY (thank goodness for those OTT lights!!), staying up late, and rushing to hide the damn thing whenever I thought I heard him getting up or getting home - it's DONE.  Smiley  He's a huge Star Wars fan, and I figured it would be nice to do something special for him.  I have done so many other projects for other people, I think it was past time he got something hand made from me.  

Sorry for the semi dark/blurry photo - it's pretty gloomy here and I had to take the photo in my office with my iPhone since my good camera is at the house....and the man is far too good at sniffing out presents hidden anywhere at home, so I'm keeping this in my office at work so he can't find it!

I know it's shamefull but I've never seen Star Wars. Regardless of my cultural patheticness...this is AMAZING. The stitching and lettering are beautiful and the framing really turned out great. I don't know the movie reference but the quote is very nice too. I'm certain that the man will be over the moon or stars or the darth vaders or whatever!! Great great job.

Great quote and super stitching skills.
Hm, so if this is not in the movies, where is it from? I quite like it, makes the Sith look like a bunch of craftsters Grin Grin Hey, it's about passion, right? Grin Grin

From what I understand from all of my super geek friends, it's from the "expanded universe" which basically means all the stuff outside the movies.  The Jedi have a code too...I might have to do that one, maybe in a nice Yoda green to hang up next to this one Smiley

Thanks for all the wonderful comments!
