Wow!  You've really kicked it up a notch.  That's awesome!  I hope it was well-received and is keeping him warm.

YKYACW you say something to your man about finally getting a box to wrap a friend's gift in and his question is "what did you make him?" not "what did you get him" or "what are you giving him."

This is truly one of the coolest things I've seen in my embroidery stalking career. A. Maz. Ing. Smiley

Aw, thanks Bee!

This is possibly TOO awesome. I love the detail.

Thanks!  It was a fun one to do twice!

Why, thank you!  I see you are a Portlander yourself and can probably understand why it's hard for me to choose sides in this battle... as squirrels are so sinisterly pervasive here.

Congratulations on making some very thoughtful and lovely gifts!  I hope you enjoy getting to know your grandparents a bit more this holiday.

It was requested that I make this by one friend for another, mutual friend in a far off land and I was so honored to be asked.  It has finally been received and so graciously acknowledged that I can post it here.

Of course, this is a second of this one I did for the Good Cause Challenge, but "quilted" rather than mounted on stretchers.

I made the bias tape myself (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=318475.0) to use for this project (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=318664.0) and was so glad I had plenty left over for this, because I love how the diagonal stripes are reminiscent of the static on old TVs which kind of ties in with the original War of the Worlds radio broadcast...  but only because they are both old-timey.   Kiss

There are little rings sewn to the back along the top to hang it with.

For some reason I had extra fun free-handing the "signature" on this.

I used satin stitch, back stitch, split stitch and French knots and 1-3 strands. I've received a lovely note from the recipient and believe it was well-received.  YEY!

HOLY McSHEEZY! i exist on the interwebs! (it's a shame the whole internet won't fit on my mom's fridge.)

thanks for the heads up, TheMistressT! (i love freaking EVERYTHING you make, btw...)

Your piece is quite a hit over there, too!  Congratulations!  And, thank you for the compliment... my goodness, I'm all flushed over here.   Kiss

I love your Apple-esque chocolate logo! It's so simple and definitely recognizable as a chocolate icon, even if she doesn't get the Apple reference.

Thanks!  Y'all are helping my confidence!

That is neat  Grin I love a lot. No one could hate this.

Thank you!  I like that; "no one could hate this."

Wow, I would love to revieve that at christmas.

Thanks!  I kind of hope I get some chocolate for xmas myself... since I'm giving so much as gifts.
