I haven't cross-stitched since I was a kid but I love a snarky bit of needlework so I couldn't resist BTMeH.
Unfortunately, I really wasn't all that impressed. Why? Well, it's mostly just the same sassy sayings you see all over the interwebs slapped onto (mostly) boring designs. I get wanting your stuff to seem like it's wholesome until someone actually reads the words but after 3-4 of them they start to feel pretty much the same. I just wasn't feeling it. That said, if you're picking this up for someone who doesn't spend much time online or as a way to get inspired to start stitching maybe it'll be just the thing.
