I did this for my girlfriend (who by the by has asked me to teach her to cross stitch!!!). She kind of gets the color codes since they are color coded. I tried to explain the "all your base" reference but that went about like this   Roll Eyes

She doesn't understand what it says but she does understand what it means which is good enough for both of us!

That's really cute Cheesy I like the All Your Base reference Wink Maybe she'd get it more if you showed her the whole transcript? Though people of lesser geekiness don't seem to be quite as amused by poor translations...

love + geekiness + a man who can cross stitch = WOW! I especially love the colour codes (and no, I am not geeky enough to realize what the rest means either!  Roll Eyes Though I think I get the 'base' part)

Agreed! I get it and if my boyfriend made that for me, I'd go nuts. Wink

I'm not doing personal swaps right now, but if you're interested, go ahead and PM me anyway--maybe we can work it out for later. Smiley

Freaking AMAZING. Oh I love it.. This is so going on my to do list. Hahahaha. OMG love the hex codes. My BF always used to laugh at me because I knew about 10 color hex codes off hand. I used to write a lot of HTML back before I got a program and got lazy.
