I made this hoop for the monthly hoopla-along. A tiny bit of foul language.
I have a sick obsession with bats and my favorite saying just happens to be bat-shit-crazy. I work in a pharmacy, so I get to use this saying on a daily basis and my co-workers crack up every time. So this is what I came up with. It was a quick stitchup and the first piece I have finished in a long time (I have about 7 half finished projects going on right now).

See, I don't like bats at all, but this is awesome! I'd like to have one to hang at my desk at work but I'm sure that wouldn't go over very well. Smiley

This is the greatest!  I'm so totally pinning it!  I love that the bat is so detailed and realistic, and the saying is hilarious.

Thanks for all the nice comments guys! I can't believe this is a featured project!!!! Thanks!!
The pattern for the bat I bought from http://www.etsy.com/shop/5PrickedFinger5 There are so many great patterns. The pattern for the letters I bought a hundred years ago for I site that I can't remember (I know it was an British site because I paid in pounds). The lettering wasn't as hard as it may look, just alternate each stitch with different colors.
Thanks again for all the wonderful comments!
