And here he is...


So here's an update on the silliest cross-stitch project, ever. Well, at least, that's my goal. The unlucky party on the receiving end of this gift should be receiving maximum embarrassment from this. :) I wanted to use a font that was a bit more fun, but it was hard to find something that fit the circle hoop above (which I'll probably keep it in). I was re-thinking the phrase because it's absolutely everywhere and so Hot Topic, but if the goal is maximum embarrassment for my friend, I think it scores....



I also experimented with metallic floss - silver, in particular, but the combination of it on a black background just looked super-cruddy:



metallic floss, that is

You'd have to see a macro close-up to see just how bad it looks, but it's bad, people, it's bad. It's odd how regular floss has a much nicer sheen to it, something about the texture makes it sit and look so much better in cross stitch.



What do you guys think? If you could have a red-eyed, creepy Robward say anything in cross stitch, what would he say? I'm sure the creative collective consciousness has something better than my awful Hot Topic phrase. Or worse? Worse works, too! ;)



Hope you all had a fabulous Thanksgiving - I spent mine with a friend's family and it was just perfect, fun, funny, and awesome. Oh, and I'll be showing you my wonderful Christmas decorating soon! Yes, that is sarcasm. :)

What would I make him say? Hm, well I've only seen the movie once (and I'm one of those Twilight haters) and I think he said something along the lines of "I'm a monster! I can eat you!" or something like that...

But if I had made this, I probably would put some stupid sparkling joke underneath him. Vampires do not sparkle for goodness sake! They die! They die in sunlight. GAH! *sigh*

But great job stitchin' him up! I hope your mystery friend enjoys it!

Bravo! hehehe.
I'm not going to suggest a better quote because that would reveal the sad truth that I read those books...wait, I mean, umm..nothing. :)

Wow, congratulations on finishing it.
My daughter had sent me a link to this pattern, she didn't like the likeness at all.

Hahaha - love it. I think "Stupid Lamb" is perfect, although "it's the florescents" could be hilarious for red-eyed Edward, too.

With the smile he has on his face (looks like he just devoured a Bella-burger) the saying is perfect! Love Edward...but Bella annoys me.

I amazed by your stitching...I have no patience for cross stitch. Though I love how it looks.
