The coolest needlepoint project I've ever heard of

The coolest needlepoint project I've heard of was a designer's gift to her parents. She needlepointed on several pillows some of her family's random catch-phrases (in her case, clueless things her father had said that had become classics).

We all have these things that we say to each other -- private jokes with friends, punch lines to family stories, phrases that come out at holiday dinners year after year, ways that we speak with the closest people in our life when we're remembering and reaffirming our lives.

Wouldn't it be amazing to celebrate some of these phrases on pillows?

KNITPRO is a free online application that will make a needlepoint or a knitting pattern from anything you choose to upload.

Or if that's too much work, there always are the classics.........
