I’ve been really getting into cross stitch lately. I mean really. No, I haven’t suddenly aged 40 years and decided to make pictures to brighten up my retirement flat
I just love the medium. It’s creative and relaxing, and the end result is always pleasing. But what I like best is taking two (or more) things that really shouldn’t be mixed, and, well, mixing them.
Like Star Trek and Norwegian redwork embroidery
(also featured as a Mr X Stitch ‘Stitchgasm’ – how cool!)
or… Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Navajo weaving and (duh) cross stitch
I’m wasting loads of time this way, but loving every minute. Not exactly disobedience, but certainly mischievous 🙂 You can find more on my Flickr stream. Ill leave you with a favourite I stitched for my brother. It was a cracking picture, but I think the frame wasn’t compatible or something (he’s in Belgium). Ah well.”]
