Mini cross stitch, completed "Go Ham or Go Home" in round 3" embroidery hoop

---The Story---

I originally started stitching ham for a high school physics teacher, and except for forays into bacon, I haven't really stopped. Now you can reap the delicious rewards.

This is an original prototype for that project, stitched by hand without a guide, and as such it's a one of a kind design. You can see the already-ham version of "Go HAM" in a red round hoop in a photo here (and in my shop -- see "The Links" below), but this little piggy will be going to market all alone, as a one time design that is extremely cute but also quite time-consuming to stitch.

This stitch could either read as a really enthusiastic endorsement of ham, or (if you're the urban-dictionary-reading type) a mature commentary on going hard after what you want.

Also pictured are other cross stitches available in my shop (not included in this listing): Team Garlic, and kitchen towels with "Give me all the bacon and eggs you have" and "Team Garlic." (See "The Links" below for...well, the links.)

---The Deets---

This small cross stitch fits in the palm of your 3" round hand, or a similarly sized space on your wall. The words "Go HAM or go home" are stitched in black with a pink pig in the background. For emphasis.

*FRAME: This stitch will ship in a 3" natural wood embroidery hoop, as pictured.

*SHIP: This stitch ships via USPS first class mail with delivery confirmation, or international first class. You will receive this exact stitch as pictured in the first two photos no matter where you live in the world, and it will be in the mail within a week of your purchase (almost certainly sooner), per my shop policies, unless I convo you otherwise or a delay is noted in my shop policies, shop banner or announcements (under the shop banner).

*GIFT WRAP: Convo me or include a note in the purchase order if you would like this gift-wrapped, and I will wrap it in plain paper with a felt belt and include a notecard for your "to" and "from." Let me know if you're having me send this directly to the recipient, and I will write in your message before sending!
