Last-Minute Man Gift

I know the holidays are over, but I just couldn’t wait until some other gift-giving season to show you this.

My man, like many of his kind, is hard to buy for. He doesn’t want much stuff, and what he does want (like books) he buys for himself.

I’ve been seeing a lot of rock lyrics and whatnot cross-stitched or embroidered in a tongue-in-cheek kind of presentation. I was going to share the links but can’t find them anymore. Anyway, I was thinking it would be cool to have something similar with a quote from our favorite TV show, The Wire. I found a bunch of T-shirts, and one very handsome print, but the quote dealt with guns, and I just didn’t think he’d want to hang that in our home or his office. No cross stitch to be found.

So I came up with this. For those of you who haven’t seen The Wire, Omar Little is a sort of Robin Hood character (he steals from drug dealers) and has a way with words. It was kind of a quick and dirty job, as you can see, but I had a time limit. He loves it.
