Positive Reinforcement....and a Challenge

So I have been really cranky lately.

Well, crankier than usual.

Luckily enough for everyone who has to deal with me on a daily basis, I found this pattern (well, part of a pattern) and decided to hang it over my bathroom mirror.  Sometimes a fella just needs something to make him feel a little bit better in the morning...

The original was in pink and yellow, but I decided to change it to match my towels,  (Plus, I come off girly enough that I really don't need something pink in my bathroom.)

I'm actually really happy with it, and it seems to do the trick.

Now here's the challenge...  It is actually from a much bigger pattern:

You really can't see all of it because of the limited capabilities of my camera.  Anyways, it says stuff like "Nice to See You!" and "It's Been Too Long."  Normally, I would loathe this kind of thing, but I like the fonts and all.  The thing is, it's f'ing huge.  And then the directions say they want you to put backing on it, sew some dowels into it and make it a "Warm Welcome Banner!"  (The exclamation points are not my own.) To all of this I say, "Probably not."

It also says the estimated time to finish is THREE HUNDRED HOURS.  That sounds like much less of a craft project and more of a community service sentence.  

But we shall see...  I'll try to take a picture of the whole shebang to get your opinions.  And if I do decide to start on it, I'll do my best to make it the biggest "Stitch Along with Stump" ever! (exclamation point my own.)
