the revolution will be handmade

Went to the punk festival at Fullersta yesterday, which led to a drunken night of mayhem - alcohol, punk rock & the usual disco dancing to old 80's hits (New Kids On The Block!). Today I've been feeling pretty shitty - or as good as I deserve, like some people would put it - so instead of going to the festival again I decided to spend tonight finishing this x-stitch that I've been working on for a while.

The original picture comes from a 1st of May poster from Umeå LS and you can find it here. First time I saw it I thought it would make a great x-stitch pattern because of the simple design. & it's been perfect for stitching on the bus to/from work, since I didn't need to look at the pattern all the time after the black outlines where done.

But now I don't know what to do with it... Thinking about adding a quote or something, but I can't really figure out what, or where i should put it. Anyone out there who's got any suggestions?

That's really cool! It would look good on a bag.

that might work... i've been thinking about putting it on a t-shirt, but not sure how that would turn out.

I would put it on a cushion, with a nice fabric on the other side, or another xstitch if you have some more at hand !
I think it would be a nice way to "revolution" a sofa, and on top of that, with yous head on it, the girl would seem to be pulling your hair! :o)
