My first design!

At the begining of the year I switched jobs via a friend that bugged her supervisor that they needed a new cake decorator. After a long fight (with my superviors at the time) I got the job! It meant a lot to me that my friend went out of her way to help me out. I thought I should make her something. She is a very unqiue indivdual. I have been wanting to make my our cross stitch design for a while so I thought that this would be a perfect opportunity.
"You're one of a kind" fits her to a T! It was very simple and easy to draw up (yay for graph paper!) For the life of me I can not find the stinkin' paper that I drew this on. I'm sad. :(
I used 22 count green aida cloth and learned a lesson. It's small! I should have used a larger count but, oh well! I do learn from my mistakes though. I mixed two different colors of thread and added a few little star busts so it didn't like too plain. I also made a boarder out of some ribbon that I had laying around. The photo was taken right before it was framed. And I don't have a clearer photo :( sorry. Framed it's about 4X6 in.
I'm very happy with how it can out.
