The WoWspeak explanation:  my best friend and I both raided as resto druids in Wrath, in the same guild, which was far more fun and less contentious (neither of us are loot whores) than we predicted.  She's playing her hunter now, and my new schedule at work precludes raiding entirely, so we miss that time together.  So I made this for her for Christmas.

The non-WoW version:  You won't get why it's funny, so just tell me it's pretty  Wink

The technical stuff:  Designed from two free alphabets I found online, charted with KG Stitch.  I designed the leaves myself.  Stitch on a scrap of 14-ct Aida leftover from a kit I'll probably never finish, oh well.  Bordered with scraps from my Challenge #59 entry!  And finally, laced over foam board according to the tutorial here at Craftster, which I love and adore because framing is expensive, and foam board is decidedly not.

Okay, I don't "get" it.... but it IS very pretty!  I love the colors you used, and the fact that it's such a personal gift that brings up some wonderful memories.  I hope your friend loves it!
