Who doesn't love XKCD, it's totally the king of geeky webcomics....  anyhow, I absolutely love this one and since it was my cousin's wedding I thought it'd be a totally apt gift :-) and the great thing about XKCD is that it's already an embroidery pattern heheh
the whole thing is worked in 2 stands of embroidery floss and backstitch, apart form the frames of the cartoon which were worked in 1 strand.

Awesome idea!  I may have to try that with one of my husband's favorite strips.

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