Whew, not a long enough title space to list everything I put on here.
** Look below for new close-up pics!

 I did this for my best friend for her birthday and it's basically a bunch of inside anecdotes thrown together. I have a unicycle because she loves them and rides one around campus all the time. The petticoat and shoe are there to commemorate our strange but girly "fashion" sense, heh. She loves Alice in Wonderland, thus the cheshire cat. I hate purple so I made him orange and pink instead. The spork and sushi piece are... something you just had to be there for, hahaha. And the balloons represent the song "99 red luftballoons", which we sing exuberantly whenever one of us is sad/angry (I didn't have the patience to literally embroider 99 balloons, but you get the idea  Wink

I used the The Flight of the Conchords quote from the song "Sello Tape" because it's just the perfect description of our love and friendship, and it makes me giggle profusely! Oh, and I found the frame at Goodwill and just painted it orange. I've posted other brightly painted frames and such on craftster so have a look at my other projects to see more if you'd like =)

Sorry for the crappy photo quality, my camera is acting funny.

It seems that different people have an idea of what I am, and what I should be. And then there's me.

I'm not familiar with The Flight of the Conchords, but this totally rocks.  But then, anything with a spork rocks in my mind.  AND riding a unicycle around campus?  HOW COOL IS THAT?  I'm sure your friend will love it.

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

"Sello tape" is one of my favs! I always sing it with my best friend at really inappropriate moments and it never fails to make us smile. Love it.
