I am a huge Mythbusters fan (nerdiness surfacing here) and so I was so excited when CRAFT blog (the on-line version of CRAFT magazine) posted about this delightful chart of a quote from Mythbusters.
I love the elaborate stitching and those great lions at the bottom.
To convert this to needlepoint make one Tent Stitch (Basketweave or Continental) per symbol. Then you are left with the Background to do. With the elaborate lettering and leaf border, I’d pick something simple, such as a basic stripe or something open such as a Blackwork pattern.
The pattern is by Cross Stitch Ninja and is available in her Flickr pool.
And unlike most of the things they do on the show, you can do this at home!
