Cross-stitch Craziness…

December 28, 2008

Okay, these post titles just keep getting worse, but I’m tired.  I made this bookmark for my friend, Brent, who just had open-heart surgery.  He was joking around about how he would sing this song when he woke up, since, because he’ll have an artificial heart valve, he’ll be part robot.  He’s so awesome.  I can’t wait till school starts so I can give it to him!

And this is quite goofy, but I absolutely love it!  It was started a couple years ago, when Eth & I lived together, but then I put it away after the big move.  Since we’re moving back in together, I thought I should finish it up so it can go on our living room wall somewhere.  Some of the parts are from Jo Verso’s books (She was fuckin’ amazing!  Rest in peace.) and others were things I made up.

Ruben really does have a heart on his side like that!  I’m holding a cake & Eth is holding a stack of books.  Up until recently, he’s been a book-buying fool, but has weeded his collection down to a sane level.

Okay, that’s all!

    Oh my GAH these are the darlingest things I’ve ever seen. I need to start cross stitching… how do you make your patterns? Do you use a program or do you just draw them?

    I’ll second the above GAH! That last piece is overwhelmingly adorable/awesome. Well done, you.

    Thanks guys!

    Kirby!—I don’t have a pattern. I just print out, or use store-bought, graph paper. I then use colored pencils to draw each “section”, cut them out, then arrange them on a new, clean sheet. That way, I don’t have to erase & fiddle around to get the lay-out just right. Once it looks right, I tape them or glue them into place. It’s fun!

    These are beautiful, Destiny. I used to do some cross-stitch way back when, but haven’t in a long time. These are inspiring!

    Awesome work! I might just have to hire you to make something for me!
