I had the privilege of being a swap angel for Smeddley recently! It was for the fairytale swap. She made a hoop with the same saying and had mentioned to me how much she wanted one! Sooo... I had to make her one!  Cheesy


It is on 14 count black aida cloth. I could not find 16 or 18 count in black anywhere!!!




I also decided to frame it! The frame was so boring and ordinary, I painted some splashes of colour to match the cross stitch! Smiley


Thank you Smeddley for the photos! <3

I love the shading in the lettering.  Such a striking piece.

This totally rocks. I still need to read the book. So many nice touches! Very cool design.

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

this is very pretty...and of course, your attention to the smallest detail, such as adding color to the frame, makes it very finely crafted!

I love it...and it is so going to be pinned!

I love the Cheshire grin and the subtle variation of blue and white in the stitches!
