This is a quotation from John Waters.

The border is inspired by a handkerchief from the Faberge collection in the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts.

Tomorrow, I'm making it into a pillow.

The inspiration for the border.  You can see the red and blue shapes and light blue triangles.  I made a whole border based on this Faberge fabric, but cut it back for this particular stitch.  I went with orange (DMC 606 I think), blue (DMC 995), and green (DMC 700 maybe) instead of red, blue and light blue.

Let me know what you think!

Great quote and excellent needlework. I'm pretty amazed. Even if you did change the colors it totally rocks!

I think you have made reading, stitching, stitching about reading AND John Waters sexy!!! Cheesy

This is a wonderful piece. The font is simple and the border is very elegant (and stands up well to the inspiration).

Hehe, that's one of my favorite quotes.  Awesome stitching!  I bet it'll look awesome as a pillow, too.
