"Home Is Wherever I'm With You"

Here is my latest cross-stitch project, which took a good few days to complete. The text is a quote from the song Home by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, which Adam loves. I made it mostly for him, but also because I found this version of it and it inspired me. I tried to play with color in this piece, but I'm not 100% happy with how it turned out. The "wherever" is actually a dark rose, not a red, but it looks red. It started looking very red-white-and-blue and patriotic, which was not at all the feel I was going for, so I threw the pink and yellow in there. It just doesn't all gel together. It was also originally supposed to fit in a 8x10 frame, but it ended up fitting perfectly in a 5x7 frame instead. Just goes to show that you never know what will happen when you're crafting!
I think I'm going to redo this piece with some fun colors on white and have a wider border around it so that it won't look lost in a 8x10 frame.
