Stitch Story: How to Spell Kobe

Back in March, my mom came out to visit and was conveniently here for a Lakers-Spurs game (she's a very very casual Spurs fan). At one point during the game, Kobe did something that made her say....

She of course meant it as an insult to Kobe for his arrogance/show-boating/unstoppableness, but the sentiment can really be taken either way, which makes it even funnier.

This was my first time working with metallic/light effects thread. Ugh. What a pain that was. I think the picture makes it look worse than it actually is, but there are some puffy stitches. I was just trying to get through it. I think it's going to be a long time before I try metallic thread again.
