So I've been experimenting with typography in cross stitch a little and came up with this.
I used PC Stitch for the layout. The primary font is out there on the internet somewhere; it's on all those text message stitches, I just changed it a bit.
It's done on 14 count platinum color aida from Charles Craft with DMC colors 817 and 844. I think the border is 666.
Speaking of the border, here's a close-up of the corner embellishments.
It's the part I probably like best. I can't remember where I first saw those little floral-viney bits, but I fell in love with them, and now I put them on everything.
I used the border to fasten a layer of felt to the back. I intend in the next day or two to stuff it as a pillow, and I find the stuffing fibers tend to go through the fabric, so I'm hoping the felt will keep that to a minimum.
It took me all day on Sunday and I just finished the border tonight in a couple of hours.
Finally, the lyrics are to the song "Why Did We Fire The Gun" by Waldeck.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wkzUUQhtIb4
