When I saw the post about the needlework challenge, I starting thinking about movie or music quotes to use. But then, Kittykill's mention of "sweet and wise words handed down to us by our mothers" got me thinking - so I made this instead!



My Mom used to say this to my brothers and I instead of the typical threats.  In our house, "Clean up your room or you're grounded!" was replaced by "Clean up your room or I shall beat you into bloody submission!"  I think it might be due to her love of the language - she's a retired English Lit teacher.  Rest assured, no one in our home was ever beaten, into bloody submission or otherwise.  Grin

I hope you like it!

Sweet. I need to copy the quote into a needlework piece and hang by my desk at the office. Smiley

I have really gotten into these subversive type cross-stitch pieces.  My son actually found some on line and asked for one.  I really enjoyed it and the mixture of sweet and nasty...

Yours is absolutely perfect.

I love it! I really like the font you used, and the border is just lovely. A good offset to the quote inside it!  Wink
