I made this for the Three Tiny Movie Things swap. One of my partner's favorite movies is Tron, so I made this.

I know the original quote is "Computer's are just machines, they can't think", but once I drew it up I didn't like the way it was laid out, so I switched it up. The idea of the quote stays exactly the same, but the end result looks nicer (and seems a bit more ominous).

For the hoop I busted up a few electronics that were lying around unused (an old thermometer, calculator, etc.). I'm a bad swap partner, though. The end result was a jagged, sharp embroidery that could do my poor partner bodily harm. Or, if the need ever arises, she could use it as a weapon  Cheesy

You're not a bad swap partner at all! Although I did enjoy the warning that you sent about the jagged edges. Wink

This is the best item I've received in any swap yet. I love it so much!

Thanks again! <3
