This cross-stitch and back stitch pattern uses lines from a particularly humorous segment of the TV show Mock the Week. I've laid them out in newspaper fashion, using different colors and styles of font to keep each line distinct.

The smaller fonts are perfectly legible in person, but lose something in pictures (partly because I didn't have anything white to set behind the piece while I photographed it). When stitched on 14 ct. Aida it will measure 11 1/2 inches wide and 6 4/5 inches tall. Those measurements include a plain cross-stitch border, which I ended up leaving off my piece.

The pattern will be e-mailed to you as a .jpg file. Please let me know if you prefer a different format.

Nervous about all the back stitching/blackwork? Here's one customer's experience with it:

"I went to Meredith with a half-baked idea that I wanted a cross stitch pattern for Little House on the Prairie, and in no time at all, she had whipped up a beautiful pattern. I started stitching it immediately, and it was such fun! The piece progressed quickly and easily. As soon as it was complete, I sent the finished picture to Meredith. I was in utter shock when she referred to it as blackwork! I had completed my first blackwork piece and didn't even know it. I had always admired blackwork but was too intimidated to try it on my own. I had done a fair amount of cross stitch as a kid, but hadn't touched it since I was 16. At 33, I picked it back up again, and it was only about a month later that I stitched Little House. Seriously, if I can do it, anyone can."

This is the clip that these lines come from, if you're curious (it gets going about a minute in) www.youtube.com/watch?v=CfnvvYabanE
