Ain't Nobody Got Time For That cross stitch sampler, completed and framed in 5x7 secondhand frame

---The Story---

If you're super busy at work but people just won't stop asking you for favors; if you've got dinner to get on the table or a new gallery opening to get to; if you've ever had bronchitis, or if your neighbors are the types of people who might barbeque at 3 a.m., you might need to send the world a message.

You do not have time to waste. Your calendar is full. You do not have time for any more things to go wrong.

In fact, nobody does.

Now, don't even waste the time that you might once have explaining how busy you are -- let this grandfather clock cross stitch say it for you.

---The Deets---

This sampler will be stitched on off-white Aida cloth to fit in a 5x7 secondhand frame (as pictured). The text is in black, and the grandfather clock is completed in browns and yellows in what I like to call an "old man chic" style. An alternative, London themed "Ain't Nobody Got Time" is also pictured.

The other completed cross stitches pictured here are the punny "Ain't nobody got thyme for that," the Doomed Redshirts and "Trust Me, I'm the doctor." If you would like to trust the doctor, convo me; for the other stitchery, see "The Links" below for listings.

The pattern is also up in the shop; see "The Links" for that as well.

*FRAME: This stitch will come framed (no glass) in a 5x7 straight-from-the-Goodwill secondhand frame within the U.S., or if you prefer, mounted on a self-stick mounting board ready to frame. (Outside the U.S., the stitch will arrive mounted without a frame, since shipping costs would be prohibitively expensive for a framed item.)

The frames pictured are example of Goodwill frames -- convo me if you'd like to request a particular color and I'll look through my collection and attempt to match your preference!

*CUSTOMIZE: This stitch doesn't usually have any customizations available, but I've decided to offer a London version as well, which you can select from the drop-down list at checkout. Default clock is the regular grandfather clock.

In general I do take all kinds of special orders and love doing 'em, so convo me if you're looking to have some other stitch work done. : D

*SHIP: This stitch will ship within the U.S. and Canada via USPS first class with delivery confirmation or international first class. It will typically be shipped within 2 weeks unless a delay is noted in my shop policies, announcements or banner, or I convo you.

Please let me know if you have a deadline or are giving it as a gift and need it sooner either by convo'ing in advance or including it in the purchase order notes.

Again, outside the U.S., this stitch will NOT be framed due to shipping costs.

---The Legal Stuff---

This and other designs were created by me, and the patterns are for sale for just a few bucks in my shop. Please don't attempt to copy this or other designs, as they're copyright Alicia Watkins 2012, and those dollars help me have the free time I need to design more!

Relatedly, please don't pin them without permission...I can't find them and repin fun things from your board if you don't let me know where it is! : )

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! :)
