For the IYP swap, TroubleT and I decided to exchange language geek crafts, so I made her this little hoopla:





The 'C' on his cape is machine embroidered, but I did everything else by hand.  Mostly back and split stitch, though the dots above the i's and the comma is french knot.  Cheesy 

And I used TroubleT's tutorial to finish the back (though it doesn't look nearly as good as hers always do!)

I have a feeling this topic is so popular because it appeals to the grumbling Grammar Nazi in all of us. Well... maybe not all of us, because then we wouldn't be grumbling.  Kiss

I think this is positively hilarious! I tend to wear the "Spelling & Grammar Nazi" hat more often than I'd like to admit. I just cannot help myself sometimes, (haha). This little gem is beautifully snarky.. and I love me some snark! Thank you for the whole-hearted chuckle that this post brought to me!!
