When Lost came back from its ridiculously long hiatus in 2009, I had to discuss the episode with someone.  Since none of my friends watched the show, and my family was unable to watch it that night, I resorted to texting a semi-friend from college who graduated the year before since he was the only person I knew that would be watching the episode.  I texted "Faraday<3" and after that throughout the entire episode (and season) we kept the conversation going until we eventually started dating.  

So thanks to Daniel Faraday and his awesomeness, I will be celebrating my two year anniversary coming up.  In order to fully thank him, I wanted to immortalize his name ("Faraday <3") into an embroidery hoop for my boyfriend's present, however I am not sure how I should do it.

I am considering either plainly stitching his (Faraday's) name (heart included) or stitching it inside the Dharma sign similar to below.



I do enjoy simplicity because the focus is on the word, but at the same time I do like the Dharma sign too.  Thoughts?

What a cute story! You HAVE to do the Dharma sign!  Grin
My husband had a pair of coveralls that he drew the dharma logo on, then wrote Jim LaFleur (my hub's name is James) underneath.  Embroidered would be WAY better.

Awesome and VERY thoughtful idea for an anniversary gift!

I think you should do the Dharma logo with the message in it like this:

Faraday
<3

Since that would be nice and symmetrical inside the circle. 

But any way you do it is fantastic! Good luck!

i think that would be great! I stitched the dharma logo for my boyfriend and he loved it, i wish i had thought to put something cute inside of it instead of just "dharma"

i bet he'll love it!
