Your Mom mini cross stitch, framed in your choice of square or horizontal oval frames, or a natural wood embroidery hoop

---The Story---

Win every argument you've ever had with this small 3x3 square-framed cross stitch of "your mom."

"Why were you so late getting into work this morning?" Answer: Your mom.

"You're such a jerk!" Answer: Your mom.

"Who's your favorite candidate in the Republican primaries?" Answer: Your mom.

"Would you say this yellow is more canary or goldenrod?" Answer: Your mom.

Your mom is literally the answer to any question and insult. Now cut the need to even utter the words "your mom" out of your daily life by getting a tiny cross stitch you can point to. It's perfect for the office (does your boss ever give you trouble? Her mom!), the home (your partner refuses to stop adding to that large pile of dirty socks because "it's for science"? His mom!), or even the car (that new wheel bearing is going to cost HOW much?? The mechanic's mom!).

---The Deets---

This listing is for a small version of "your mom", stitched in dark brown small script with a flower motif (flower color may vary to match frame color).

The second photo shows "your mom" in an electric blue square frame (no longer available) along with "that's what she said" mini, which can be found as a set in "The Links" section of this listing. Larger versions of "Your Mom" are pictured as well, and are available upon request!

*FRAME: All the square and oval frames are tabletop frames, while natural wood embroidery hoops can be hung on the wall -- or I can choose from my assortment of small Goodwill secondhand frames if you're looking for something wooden or metal.

*SHIP: This will ship via USPS first class with delivery confirmation (or international first class). Upgrades to Priority shipping (which is insured) or expedited shipping are also available as options at checkout.
This stitch will ship as pictured to anywhere in the world and will be shipped within about a week (usually sooner), unless I convo you otherwise or longer lead time is indicated in my shop announcements (below the shop banner) or shop policies. Please see my shop policies for other shipping details.

*GIFT WRAP: Giving "your mom" as a gift? Let me know in the purchase order or by convo and I'll wrap it up in plain paper with a small notecard for you to write your "to" and "from" on (or let me know whose names to write if it's going straight to the recipient), then pack it with some newspaper ads in a yellow envelope and send it on its way. Examples of the gift wrapping are shown in the last picture above.

Double-check the address you use at check-out, especially if you're having it sent directly to a gift recipient, to avoid delays and disappointments in shipping!

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! :)
