Anthony, Grace's boyfriend, is a huge Superman fan. So much so, in fact, that he owns a piece of memorabilia from the original Superman movie. Perhaps there are those among my readers who are more educated than I am, and know that an entire language has been formulated for Superman's home planet, Krypton. Several months ago, Anthony challenged me to stitch the Kryptonian word Hope, which I have finally done. This was part of his birthday gift.
I made the frame, then painted it black.
Since I'm writing this post in advance, I don't know what Anthony's reaction will be, but I'm sure he'll like it!
