A very hasty birthday gift for a friend, that I put together yesterday. Now my hands hurt... The quote comes from Johan Staël von Holstein, a neo-liberal writer & entrepreneur who always makes us laugh with his columns in the swedish newspaper Metro. The english translation would be something like "just work hard & don't complain".
The deers comes from the book Korsstygn på nytt, by swedish artist Annika Huett. It's a really funny book with lots of new & different cross stitch patterns that are pretty easy to make & very inspireing. The plan was to get som red roses or other flowers on it too, but I just didn't have the time.
