Freak out!

We’ve all seen the “Keep Calm and Carry On” posters (everywhere!) and there’s a healthy (almost excessive) dose of spoofs and derivations out there. While browsing the web for cross stitch ideas and such, I stumbled in the “Freak Out and Throw Stuff” derivation and decided that I *had* to make it into a cross stitch.

Instead of relying on someone else’s sweat and tears, I decided to try my hand at working out the pattern myself. Then I spent a long time trying to decide if I would do it in red like everyone else (I did) or  add a bit of sparkle to the crown (I did not). Finally, I just sat down and did it.
