This was made for my partner Padfoot, as part of the Whedonverse Swap.  Since she's received and posted I thought I would put it up here too.  For anyone who hasn't seen this episode of Buffy, this is taken from a scene where Giles tries to explain, using an overhead projector, who the monsters that took their voices are, what they want and how to defeat them.

This was my first attempt at (non-cross stitch) embroidery and I'm very happy with how it turned out.

The original design was found at CafePress and was designed by Mortui Non Mordent.

Thanks for looking.  Smiley

I've never watched the show so I don't know what this is all about but I do know that this is freakin awesome!!!  Great job.  I love the little part where the monster is taking the heart, so funny.  His crazed look really does it for me.  Nicely done.

This brought a tear to my eye! As a devoted Buffy fan and new embroidery fanatic I almost fell out of my chair when I saw this!
