Big Saturday Reveal


**i am linking this up to amylouwho's sew and tell this week. Check out what everyone else has made and let them know how much you love what they made.**

The other day i gave you a sneak peek of a little project i was working on for my sweet husband. Here it is in all it's glory. I finished it in time for his imminent arrival tonight.


Here is a close up of the words, in case it was hard to see as a whole. It feels so nice to get a project done from start to finish. I hope that he will want to hang this in his office, maybe.



The project was inspired by a short PSA that Chris saw one night while we were watching TV after the kids went to bed. He thought it was great since he is a geek himself so i offhandedly joked with him about cross stitching it on a pillow for him. We laughed it off but then this idea took shape in my head and i went with it.

Love it! I quilted something similar for my hubby for Valentine's Day... made it look like a goofy middle school love note. Worked out great as a gift since I had originally just wanted to test out an idea I had. *laugh*
