In another inspired mix of contemporary and traditional, I give you the SSID and WEP KEY Sampler!

On 14 count oatmeal colored aida, with four colors.  My housemate got the idea from when friends come over with laptops and mobile devices and always need to connect to her wifi.  It was a hassle looking at the router every time and she doesn't know how to change the password to something memorable and whenever she wrote it down on something, it'd get lost.  So here it is to be framed and hung on the wall.

She already has a bunch of decor with tree motifs, so I thought I'd continue that.  The blue/green color scheme matches the colors of her walls, too.

Took me the better part of a week to bust this out.

Some details

I was up until 2:30 last night saying "Just one more leaf just one more leaf" until I had finished it all.  The leaf stitches are crossed in different directions, which makes the thread shimmer a little bit.

Thanks for your comments and questions!

A really useful idea, how bright and how pretty.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

Very clever idea, and very nicely done!  Just the sort of thing that would come in very handy at my house!! Cheesy

I might have to steal this idea! We're always losing ours, too! This rocks!

Absolutely brilliant! I should make one for my sister- I'm always carrying my laptop out to her house to mooch off her internet.  Cheesy
