So as an English Grad student I have an unhealthy attachment to British literature, so I decided I needed so Marlowe above my desk to encourage me while I study...

A little bit closer to the words

and the angel

and of course the devil

I got tired of making things for other people, so I finally sat down and made something for myself! I thought this was appropriate since I had just finished setting my office up for myself at home!

Thanks for looking!

Love the design and the sentiment. So glad you got around to making something for yourself.

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

Classically beautiful!  I adore the quote, and your lettering is excellent.  Where did you find the inspiration for your angel and devil?  They are awesome!

Looking to de-stash cross stitch magazines, particularly Cross Stitch Gold or New Stitches?  Please drop me a line!  I'd love to swap or buy some missing from my library!

Beautiful! Great quote and isn't it nice to have something you worked hard on just for you?
