i spent my high-school years listening to a whole lot of the smiths and scratching the words to those songs in the margins of many a school notebook. lately, i've found myself compelled to spell them out in stitches and frame them within embroidery hoops.

this one in particular is, i think, my all-time-favourite smiths quote -- from the song rusholme ruffians. but you dont have to know that it's a collection of lines sung by morrissey to appreciate the piece, right?

originally, i was going to do these pieces in traditional cross-stitch fonts and make them look like old samplers, but with these quirky lyrics where the usual ABC123 and bible quotes would be --- but i've opted to use this more casual hand-writing style font instead -- i like the mix of the traditional cross-stitch craft done in this kinda modern-feeling style.

currently, these are being stitched to order - so you've got some options. you can choose black stitching on white or light grey fabric, or white stitching on black fabric. or, you can get it like the way this one is in the photos -- off-white stitching on dark grey fabric. (the white-on-black "please please please..." one is included here in the photos so you can see the different stitching color options.)
the finished piece is framed within a 9.25" wooden embroidery hoop. it is ready to hang on the wall as-is. or you can prop it on a ledge or a shelf among other collectibles or all on its own.

please note: because this is stitched to order, please allow up to two weeks turn-around time before i ship it out. (but i'm usually able to get orders completed and out the door much faster than that.) if timing is a concern, email me and i will let you know exactly how quickly i can get it out for you.

my faith in love.... smiths stitches
