Stitches 'n' Hoes

A friend of mine went backpacking through india recently. She was telling me about how nice the camel drivers were and apparently this was one of their favourite sayings, so I stitched it up for her to take to uni in the Autumn.

The font is called Marcelle and I got it from dafont.com, and the camel is from the front of a camel cigarette packet.
I used chainstitch and backstitch and it's a five inch hoop.

I think this is super adorable! I was India but never saw camels :-/ so she's super lucky(and also lucky to have a great friend that makes her awesome things). I just think it's scary that before I read what you said about the camel being from the cigarettes that I was like... "Hey, isn't the Camel from the cigarettes I used to smoke?" Glad I don't smoke those (or any cigarettes) anymore. But yeah, great job!

Aww thankyou so much!! Smiley
I'm trying to make a few things for friends over the summer, so they ether have something to take away to uni or have something to remember me by when I go off to uni myself. hoping a few of them will return the favour so I have some artwork to display in my uni halls!!
