Completed cross stitch saying "Shut it DOWN" in red with flower and vine motif, in 4" natural wood embroidery hoop

---The Story---

Don't you LOVE Peter Dinklage? I mean, seriously. He is the best.

Before he was the best as "the imp," he was LL's best-ever love interest...if he hadn't gone on so awesomely to play the game where you win or you die, I would feel much more upset that he shut that down. I might even have had to figure out how to edit one of those "shipper" videos to that song "Gravity" or something.

Instead, knowing Dinklage has gone on to be the best character in a(nother) series full of them, we can commemorate the shutting down, and other things that should be shut down in our own lives, with this stylish cross stitch.

Which is probably for the best -- I mean, Cris*points are pretty awesome, and I've never edited a video in my life.

---The Deets---

This is a completed cross stitch of the words "Shut it DOWN" with a small flower motif stitched on white or off-white Aida cloth. Pictured examples are all of the typical red colored text, but I do offer options of other text colors, including blues or all in black -- or pick your own basic color scheme by putting your request in the purchase order notes when you buy.

*FRAME: This "Shut it DOWN" is framed in a 4" round natural wood embroidery hoop.

*GIFT WRAP: Giving this stitch as a gift? Let me know in the purchase order or by convo and I'll wrap it up in plain paper with a stitched card for you to write your "to" and "from" on (or let me know whose names to write if it's going straight to the recipient), then pack it with some newspaper ads in a yellow envelope.

*SHIP: I'll send it on its way via USPS first class with delivery confirmation (or international first class).

This stitch will ship as pictured to anywhere in the world and will be shipped within a week (usually sooner) unless I convo you otherwise or a delay is noted in my shop policies, shop banner or announcements (below the banner). Please see my shop policies for shipping details.

Frequently asked questions about aliciawatkins

I love to do custom work during the non-holiday months! I try to work on one custom project at a time so that I can give each project my full customizing attention; as a result, a significant lead time on deadlines for receiving your custom order is very much appreciated.

If possible, try to contact me at least a month in advance of a deadline for receiving a 5x7 custom cross stitch. (That said, if you're in a pinch and you know I'm the stitcher for the job, convo me anyway! If I happen to be in between custom orders, I can often get things out in a much shorter time, and like I said, I love working with customers on personalized stitchery.)
Most of my small finished cross stitches have an option for gift wrapping.

If you don't see a drop-down list as you purchase a small hooped or framed cross stitch (smaller than 4x6), but you would like your item to be wrapped in plain paper (with a small notecard for your message included), request gift wrap as you check out in the "notes to seller"!

If you're having your gift sent directly to the recipient, please double-check the address it's going to before you finish checking out, and let me know what you'd like me to write in the notecard to your recipient! :)
Mini kits are available for wholesale ordering at any time; contact me for details on which kits I have available with shelf-ready labeling, and for pricing details!

I also offer a selection of finished cross stitch available for wholesale or certain consignment situations, for stores that feel my work would be a good fit. Contact me if you're interested in carrying my work in your store, and we'll talk about what I've done in the past and what you're looking for! :)
I believe in using secondhand frames because it's eco-friendly, supports my local thrift shops, and allows me to frame your items, if you'd like that, at very low cost.

Because they are unique and unapproved by you, I don't pass on the cost of the secondhand frames to you, except for the cost of shipping (usually about a $2 difference).

When you order an item from me, rest assured that you are only paying for the stitchwork, and you may treat the frame as a "suggestion" -- if you don't like it, give the frame away! Your 4x6 or larger cross stitch will come with a mounting board that will allow you to easily pop it out of the "suggested" frame I've sent it in and into any same-sized frame of your choice.
I can't send you a photo of your options for 4x6 or larger frames; I have too many frames and a too quickly rotating stock for that. However, you're welcome to let me know your preferences in color and material (i.e. wood, metal, plastic) and I'll do what I can to accommodate your wishes.

If you receive your stitchwork and you HATE the frame I chose from my cache of secondhand frames, never fear! The stitching for a 4x6 or larger frame will be mounted on a board that you can simply pop out of the secondhand frame you received, and pop INto a frame you choose from a local store, another Etsy seller, or anywhere you find perfect frames.

Because the secondhand frames I send are free, I cannot offer replacements or frame-related refunds.
Google and Youtube are your BFFs in learning to cross stitch, but if you've purchased a kit or pattern from my shop, I can also offer you a Basic Cross Stitch instruction booklet via email. Just let me know you'd like one, and I'll send it along! :)
