Another Cross-stitch Finished

Another project is done. The mug is now in the box with other Christmas items. It will probably take me the rest of the year to secure a proper mailing box for it.

Friday Night's stitching.
Saturday stitching.
And Sunday's stitching after working on the front porch.
My source for the Giants logo was this book I got a long time ago. I don't remember where I got this but as a testament to how old this is, the Houston Oilers are in here and teams like the Titans and Jaguars are nowhere to be found. I think I had the bright idea years ago that I would do sweatshirts for family members and that was never done.

I used the Giants logo and then looked up all the logos from all the Super Bowls. Each logo was a bit different although the last two have been the silver, black and gray of the lower right. Very unimaginative, if you ask me. I couldn't replicate the style of the logos but I could come somewhat close and I could do the logos in the colors chosen for that year.

This came out very nice. Once the two pieces were snapped together, which took some brute force which probably means liquid can't get inside where the insert is, I thought it looked quite good.

I added my name and date as I try to do on all of my crafts. The recipient doesn't read my blog so there is no chance he'll see this.

While I know he will be thrilled with this, I don't envision him actually using it for beverages. I think it will sit on his desk at work and he'll keep pencils or paperclips in it. I don't mind. It was a fun project.

Beverage:  Huckleberry tea
