"You're awesome and everyone else sucks" cross stitch sampler, completed and framed in 5x7 secondhand frame (not the exact frame pictured)

---The Deets---

This sampler will be stitched on white or off-white Aida cloth to fit in a 5x7 secondhand frame. The text is in very dark gray, and the border is based on a real antique cross stitch sampler border, with pink flowers and green vines and leaves.

The other completed cross stitches pictured here are "If you see a cookie," "Ain't Nobody Got Time for That," and the Doomed Redshirts. See "The Links" below for listings.

The pattern and kit are also available in the shop; check out the patterns and kits sections of my shop or see "The Links" for those as well.

*FRAME: Within the U.S. only, This stitch will come framed (no glass) in a 5x7 straight-from-the-Goodwill secondhand frame, 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! The frames pictured are not available.

*CUSTOMIZE: There is another version of this saying with a different border on top and bottom, rather than the border pictured. Convo me if you'd

*SHIP: This stitch will ship within the U.S. via USPS first class mail with delivery confirmation or international first class. It will typically be shipped within about 3 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, and I'll let you know if I can accommodate your deadline!

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

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! :)
