I love all the steps that Ripley has to go through to activate the self-destruct system (the massive switches on the wall, the weird-looking keyboard, screwing in the bolts...) so I decided to commemorate it with this cross stitch! And using 18 count Aida, its pretty much life-size well, movie-size Smiley
