I haven't been around in quite a while!  Last year I made my husband an embroidery for our anniversary (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=335740.msg3882954#msg3882954), and this year I did the same.  We moved, and I thought it would be perfect for his home office.  It was definitely a hit!



My husband is a software developer, so this seemed perfect for him.  And he loves it!  I originally thought about painting it but decided embroidery was the way I wanted to go.  Though I ended up kind of regretting that as I hadn't done much embroidery in a while and had forgotten how tedious it could be!  The man is about nine inches tall..



The binary translates as part of one of my favorite quotes from Hamlet: "O, that this too too sallied flesh would melt, thaw, and resolve itself into a dew."  Yes, only part of the quote.  I was feeling a bit lazy and translating each letter into binary is miserable!

Aw, what a cute little binary man. I feel your pain about the tediousness. I enjoy cross-stitch, but about half way through a project, I start thinking, "I'm not done yet?!" Tongue

My husband is a programmer and would adore this. I made him a cross stitch for his office of binary but never thought to make it into a shape. Very creative Smiley

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