Made for roler in the Nerd Games swap, it's a mash-up of the Discworld City Watch logo and illuminated manuscripts, very very VERY heavily borrowed from this piece I found on the internet.  I would have loved to reproduce it a little more faithfully, because it is awesome, but I am a slow cross-stitcher so I had to make it a wee bit smaller...



And should you want to make one, here is the pattern I mostly* used...




*I have a complete inability to do things correctly or to pattern, and I tried to go back and make the changes but might have missed some!

Thanks for all the kind works!  I'm not nearly the needleworker that a lot of you are, but I was fairly happy with this piece. Cheesy

Smmarrt, it's pseudo-Latin, kinda meant to imply "Make My Day, Punk".  But in reality it's gibberish. Cheesy

Thanks - I tried Google translate and they didn't have a clue!
