made for DanaK~WaterPenny as part of the Phat Quarter book themed swap.
my chat with my swapee revealed that we are both fans of the Lord of the Rings series, and I couldn't resist stitching something from that. I get kind of sentimental about these books so instead of doing something goofy like I usually do, I went with something a little more simple. Text is the first line of the Hobbit, and the font is a stitched approximation of Bilbo's handwriting (from the movies).
Somehow managed to finish it in the midst of final exams. whew!
