A stitch in time

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

Not on *my* bedside table, sunshine

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
Not a bad wedding wish, actually...
(also featured as a Mr X Stitch ‘Stitchgasm’ – how cool!)

or… Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Navajo weaving and (duh) cross stitch

Cordelia gets all the best lines

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.

    I love these! A friend would love to make the Star Trek piece herself. Would you mind sharing where you got the pattern? (Me, if I started doing Buffy quotes I might never stop….)
