Almost a year ago, I saw this trailer for Assassin's Creed Revelations: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4K39UWxdm0U

And then I discovered the original song, "Iron" by Woodkid. Here is the link to the song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vSkb0kDacjs

Let's just say that I fell in love for this song. Hard. I love the beat, the epic feel and, most of all, the lyrics.

I decided that I had to craft something with the songs lyrics and I told myself "Why not stitch them?" When I saw that the was only 20 lines of texts in the whole lyrics, I knew I could do it! It took me around one month to stitch the whole piece.

Here is a close-up of the first lines (I just realized that some of my Christmas lights are reflected on the frame glass!  Cheesy).


Here is the whole piece! This picture really sucks, I'm sorry!


Here is me holding the frame, so you can get an idea on the size.


I think I took some better pictures at one point, I'll try to find them!

I'm always looking for song lyrics to stitch up and was going to do an "Iron" piece.  Great work!

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