I made this hoop for alwaysinmyroom in the Ongoing Wish Swap.  I bought the pattern from ActsofCraftiness' Etsy shop  It started as a cross stitch pattern but I just traced it an embroidered it since I don't cross stitch much.  I tried using the stem stitch on the words but looking at it now I don't like it and will probably go back to using the back stitch for letters and such.

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

That is so great! Lettering is such a pain sometimes.

The red is done with backstitch and looks so much nicer!  Had I had more time I probably would have ripped out all the black and redone it.  Dang deadlines!

Actually I think the slightly spiky look to the lettering is a good representation of how I feel when I need a cup of coffee.
