I'm sure you've seen other pictures and even cross stitches of terrible ninjas -- all out in the open in their ninja uniforms.
The truth is, we shouldn't even be able to recognize ninja uniforms. WE SHOULDN'T EVEN KNOW THEY HAVE THEM. Ninjas should blend into the night so thoroughly that when you find your keys in the freezer after an hour and a half of searching, you always laugh at your own mistake, NEVER thinking "maybe a ninja did it." All those movies hyping bad ninja-ing -- the hero coming home and finding a ninja lying in wait, ready to kung-fu his face, and then failing to even get in a good roundhouse kick -- have given all ninjas a bad name.
Forget those terrible ninjas that go out in broad daylight and expect to still get paid a ninja wage, and go with the ninjas so good at their jobs that you don't even know they're there.
This cross stitch of a really good ninja will help remind you of the silent but awesome presence that is the ninja who's good at his or her job. "Maybe ninjas did it," you can say to your partner next time the alarm doesn't go off when it's supposed to. "It could be ninjas," you can think to yourself when you can't find the remote control to change the channel from Jujitsu cardio.
Let the inevitable ninjas in your life know you know they're there, but not there, and don't be surprised if the appreciation earns you some unexplained chocolate ice cream next to those keys in the freezer next time.
This simple cross stitch is done with white text on black fabric. The back is protected by felt, which unless requested otherwise will not be glued on, but left loose (clinging to the needlework) for easier cleaning and restretching -- though I wouldn't be surprised if this stitch "magically" kept itself clean and straight on the wall.
*FRAME: This stitch is framed in a 3" round natural wood hoop. I also have an assortment of tiny tabletop frames in a few different colors, in which the stitched area is 1" square, if you'd like to have a ninja stitch for the office desk or other flat horizontal surface.
*SHIP: It will ship to anywhere in the world via USPS first class (with delivery confirmation) or international first class.
*GIFT WRAP: If you would like this to be gift wrapped, select "yes please" from the drop-down menu as you order, and I will wrap it in plain paper with a felt belt and a stitched card for your "to" and "from." If you'd like it sent directly to the recipient, let me know who it's going to, and I'll write in your message before sending the ninja to the address and person you specify with your message.
