That's what she said completed cross stitch, framed in secondhand frame

---The Story---

I love TV, and I've made several of these for friends all over the country. Those friends report that the cross stitches are the sort of quality conversation pieces that lead to several whole minutes of humorous small talk followed by hours of quoting their favorite television shows.

---The Deets---

This is a blue version of a sampler-inspired cross stitch of "That's what she said," an often-quoted phrase from TV and life, stitched in complementary dark blue and light blue, with a red flower motif.

Each "That's What She Said" cross stitch will be made to order, with the option of receiving it either simply on counted cross stitch cloth, mounted on self-stick mounting board, or framed in a unique, straight-from-the-Goodwill, probably-tastefully-pre-distressed frame.

*CUSTOMIZE: I decided to list color schemes separately so you could see pictures of a few different versions. If you don't see a scheme or combination you like, don't hesitate to ask -- special orders are welcome.

For a more manly version (i.e. to give to the boyfriend or that HR administrator who appreciates a healthy dose of irony), feel free to request clovers instead of flowers, another alternate design, or just the words.

*FRAME: This will be sent out framed (within the U.S. and Canada) in a secondhand 4x6 or 5x7 frame from among my cache of Goodwill treasures. You're welcome to specify your preferences by convo or in the purchase order notes about the size, material (wood, metal) and general color of your frame, and I'll do what I can to accommodate your wishes!

The frame is free to you, and if you decide it doesn't suit your needs, you'll be able to pop the stitch out on its mounting board and put it straight into whatever same-size frame you choose!

*SHIP: This design will be shipped via USPS first class mail with delivery confirmation, or international first class.

It will be completed and in the mail within a week of your order unless a delay is noted in my shop banner, shop announcements (under the banner), shop policies, or I convo you otherwise (which will only happen if I'm extremely backed up or if it's sweeps week on NBC Thursday nights).

If you are outside the U.S. or Canada, you will NOT receive this framed, as the cost of shipping the frame becomes prohibitive.

*GIFT WRAP: If you're giving "what she said" as a gift, tell me by convo or in the purchase notes and I'll wrap it up in plain paper and include a notecard for you to write on. Or if it's going straight to the recipient, let me know and I'll write in your message for you!

---The Legal Stuff---

I love hilarious, ironic cross-stitch, and this design was invented by a process of trial and error with needles and thread rather than planned out on paper. Please don't copy them and please don't pin without permission!
