My oldest daughter is in love with Audrey Hepburn.  It took me two days.  I put in the quote myself but I have the main pattern if anyone is interested.

Audrey Hepburn

The quote says " I was born with an enormous need for love, and a terrible need to give it.  Audrey Hepburn

Great job!   Is that cross stitch?  My DD would love it too.   Have you seen any patterns for Marilyn Monroe?

 Thank you! It is cross stitch, If you want the pattern just pm me and I will send it via e-mail.  I can't find any free marilyn monroe cross stitch. The ones I did find are not very expensive.  I know Etsy has some really well priced.  Sorry.

I love that, it is so cool! (and I would love love LOVE one for Elvis if you can find one).    I can't believe that took you only two days.  Wow!  But, I can't read the words on it.  (too small for my bad eyes I'm afraid).  Can you share them?  Thanks!

The words are "I was born with an enormous need for affection, and a terrible need to give it."  It is my daughter's favorite Hepburn quote.

 

I will see what I can find on Elvis, but with his popularity I might only be able to find ones that are for sale.

I bet your daughter loved it!  I gave up cross stitching years ago (my eyes just can't handle those tiny little squares anymore :0( ), but I do do surface hand embroidery and stitch bunches of wonderful things for family, friends and myself.

Thank you, Jennifer!  I just finished stitching this for my daughter for Christmas.  I didn't add a quote (such a good idea!) due to time, but it
did come out well.  I appreciate you sending me the pattern.
