8/27 - please note: because of high volume of orders for this piece, next ship date is 9/15... sorry -- i'm waiting for a shipment of hoops/frames!

"please please please, let me get what i want (this time)" sings morrissey in the song with the same title.
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.
i brought this one with me to the chicago renegade art and craft fair and overheard people remarking about it all weekend. i didn't even consider that there would be people who would see it and not know that it is a smiths quote --- but that seemed to have been okay -- i guess it's a pretty universal sentiment.

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. i haven't done any with the black stitching on grey fabric yet, which is why i dont have any photos for examples, but i am sure it would look fantastic!
the finished piece is framed within a 9.25" wooden embroidery hoop. (the black-stitching-on-white one in the photographs is framed within a 9" 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
