When you think of cross-stitching, you probably picture prim and proper women from olden times stitching Bible verses or well-known proverbs surrounded by a bunch of flowers, right?

As it turns out, you can stitch anything onto fabric.

People have taken cross-stitching to new and hilarious levels. Here are some that are sure to leave you in stitches.

If you don't have a Judge Judy cross-stitched work of art in your home, what are you even doing with your life? This next piece of cross-stitch is great for fans of both Harry Potter and brunch!

I would seriously love this one for my own home. I might change it to 8:00, though.

Is this a meme?

I love space!

If you're looking for a lot of personal space, outer space is actually a pretty good option! Fair warning: This next one has some NSFW language!

I'll do it.

Don't believe them? They literally stabbed that piece of fabric hundreds of times. I'd take them at their word.

(This one has some salty language, too!)
