[cross-stitching] New Life Motto

A new, tasteful cross-stitch piece for the home:


Pattern from Small Stitch Shop.

I searched high and low for sky blue, sparkly aida cloth. Some sellers in the UK offer iridescent aida- but none in the correct blue color. The seller sells kits that come with everything- including the sparkle cloth. I made do with regular old blue aida. I stitched with 4 strands at a time- so the pattern would look puffier and wouldn't show any of the blue background through. 

Fast. Easy. I made a couple mistakes (the unicorn's hind legs aren't quite right and I mis-aligned the bottom word, so that it's not perfectly centered) but I finished anyway... because whatever.
