Busyness: prank crafts

I am a firm believer that gag gifts show love. The more elaborate the gag, the more time (and love) is invested in it. To whit: a friend of mine recently learned how to cross-stitch. She has an extremely photogenic cat. These two things seem unrelated until: Stitch a Photo. And then this glorious birthday present was born:

I never knew there were so many shades of ecru.

It kind of blows my mind that you can take a picture and have someone convert it into a cross-stitch graph, including the right colours of embroidery floss. Well. Convert using a fancy-pants software designer. A very far cry from olden times when it was more or less freestyling – which also blows my mind. Seriously, sitting down to create this:

so many hours of work in such poor light

Hardcore!
