Facebook made me do it

Like many other stitchers, I've joined a bunch of stitch-related groups over on the Book of Faces.  And when I saw this design posted several times over there...well....I had to have it.
This is from the September 2016 issue of "Cross Stitch Crazy," designed by Emma Congdon.  It is one of my favorite Tolkien quotes,so there was no way I could resist!  It isn't terribly big, and I'm hoping to have it finished for this month's Smalls check-in.  One of the finishes I saw had substituted a teeny dragon charm for the hot air balloon in the upper right of the design - I'm going to add a charm that says "follow your arrow."  Other than that, though, I'm stitching it as charted.
