This is the first cross-stitch I've done without an express guide. Made with rainbow thread and obviously a quote by Tolkien. I chose a block lettering, and my own spin on a leaf design I found. It's nothing elaborate, but fun times nonetheless.


A little about it:

I've been seeing this quote a lot lately and I just feel it applies to my life right now which, seems kind of aimless. That and I have a real desire to read/watch Lord of the Rings right now. Oddly enough it took me about 3-4 hours to do. The word "wander" actually took me the longest because it's twice the size of the other lettering. I'm working on another one for a friend right now quoting Oscar Wilde, and though it's twice as long, it's taken me only an hour or so longer. I don't know what other info to include so here it stands.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

It's lovely! I like the simplicity of it, the colorful thread, and the leaf reminds me of the clasps they pinned their cloaks with.
