I modified a sampler with lyrics from First of May by Jonathan Coulton. Because I'm sick and tired of winter, and I wish that it was Spring.



Here's a closer look:

Beware of naughty words/themes in a lovely ballad-ish package.  Grin

Hope you like it!

Jonathon Coulton was the first thing I thought of when I saw this on the homepage, but also thought right away that there's no way someone would have been cool enough to make a cross stitch with his lyrics. Thank you SO much for proving me wrong! This is great!

Thanks, all. Smiley This was a labor of love. I decided it was necessary to pay tribute to an artist that  makes up a large part of my mp3 player's playlist.  Smiley

I love Jonathan Coulton! Though personally I would have used the lyric "outdoor fucking starts today." Hmm, now I've got an idea. . .
