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

I stitched this up for Cackle in the Invite Your Partner swap. The pattern is from a French bug cross stitch book and I decided to add the pins so he would look like a specimen.



Big thanks to Cackle for taking this picture for me.

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

Love this so, so, so, so much! I wish I could get my hands on that French cross stitch book. I stink at embroidery, but I'm actually pretty good at cross stitch.  It has been Pinned! (pun intended - snicker)

Wow, this is awesome! I absolutely love goliath beetles, and you totally did them justice. The pins are the perfect touch! I just started looking at the needlework board recently, and I'm blown away by the talent here!  Shocked
