My husband is a big Star Wars fan, so I'm always making him geeky little presents ^__^ This cross-stitch was very easy to do, and quick too (even with my incredibly slow stitching!). He has a geek shrine some shelves above his desk where most of his nerdy things go, but I insisted this one be added to the hoop wall over our bed ^__^

I used grey thread and silver metallic thread for the stitching, but the grey looks kind blue in these photos ... *shrug* I'm not sure why!

    It looks great! I love the simplicity of it, it's got a great impact. I bet the metallic thread looks super cool in person!
