After seeing Holly show off a finished cross stitch at a VMQG meeting, I rushed out and bought a pattern from weelittlestitches -- The Big Bang Theory cast. I stitched up Penny first and it was the most gratifying thing. All the counting! Precision! Nerdy-ness!
|The start of it all... Big Bang Theory cast by weelittlestitches|
|Buffy The Vampire Slayer|
|Little weeble versions of Firefly. Jayne's hat just kills me.|
|Harry Potter and friends -- weelittlestitches|
|Star Trek: TNG cast done for a friend.|
|Yoshi fridge magnet.|
|Roy and Moss and the famous catch phrase from the IT Crowd.|
The other great thing about cross-stitch? Compared to quilting, it's an EXTREMELY affordable hobby. The embroidery floss and Aida cloth are both really affordable. That and the speed at which I can make things results in this being a perfect craft for gift making!
