I wouldnt go as far as to say NSFW...




I laced it up in a bit of a hurry so you can see where the tension's all wrong, but I think it works well with the spirit of the piece lol

The embroidery pattern was a free download from tipnut.com ... the text was of course altered by me :-)

of course, the full story, on my blog.

This piece uses a mixture of 2 strands and 3 strands of embroidery floss.

I have to admit I had to go to a British slang translation site to understand it, now I might have to adopt the use of "sod" in my vocabulary; always good to have some curse words that you can use in front of the kids.  Cute gift, I'm sure it puts a smile on your mam's face.

Here's the dictionary link if anyone else needs it  Wink

haha, yes xperimentil, I didn't think about it like that.

The word 'Sod' can be used in the place of a curse word in front of children in the UK.

Sod it, you're a grumpy old sod!, Sod off :-)

there you go, EDUCATION!! lol
