It's been a long time since I had an embroidery project and this was a fun one to do to break the needlework fast!



I am part way through a semi-major bathroom redecoration/remodeling project, but decided to make this wall decoration before refinishing the cabinet that it's hung on, because I needed a good traveling craft project. I saw a cross stitch project on pinterest that said "no selfies in the bathroom," but since I don't cross stitch I put together a pattern on my computer that I printed out and transferred backwards to some linen in my stash.



I used an ombre DMC floss and a frame I'd picked up at a thrift store months ago - I just repainted it in a few metallic shades to go with the other metals and frames in the room. I chose a font what would be a little hard to read backwards, but easy to stitch and to read in the mirror over the sink.

Hah! I love it! I am not a fan of bathroom selfies, especially when the mirror is dirty. Cheesy

Thanks, y'all!

I hope that this actually inspires people to take and share selfies from our bathroom.

This is absolutely wonderful!!!

p.s. There is something much worse than a dirty mirror, I will never forget the selfie that went viral of the woman trying for sexy, but an unflushed commode completely destroyed the shot.

SEE? This is why we had to institute some RULES!  Grin

And we hardly ever have guests, so I ALWAYS clean the mirror first! (plus you can't see the toilet in the mirror no matter where you stand)
