the stitch itch
When a chill sets over the land I start feeling a peculiarly strong itch to stitch.
Here are two of my most recent parlays into stitchery:
On the left is an ode to lovers (and wink at the epic Moulin Rouge ballad) which I finished at 2:30 in the morning, half an hour before leaving to catch a flight to a wedding in Norway. And on the right is an ode to my favorite doctor friend, who happens to have a charming potty mouth.
Here are a few of my favorite stitchers who never fail to jog my creativity…
Iviva OlenicLucky Jackson of 365 Lucky Days
and Jenny Hart of Sublime Stitching.
Fun, right? I love mash-ups of traditional medium with irreverent subject matter, and I can’t wait to start stitching my way into the holidays — handmade naughty/nice crafts make the very best gifts!
These are adorable!! You should start an etsy shop, I can totally see myself giving my boyfriend the “I heart your guts” one!
That’s so sweet, thank you! (: I’ve pondered long and hard about the Etsy idea, actually, and may start something up. I’ll keep you posted.
These are adorable! I have never tried stitching but I think I could get into it! I like both of the ones you made :)
It is SO addictive – I dare you to start! (:
Hahahahaha! they are so cute & funny too! I love your intestins: yep!
are you sure i’m a potty mouth?
these are awesome.
Aww all of these are so pretty! Love it <3
It’s so important to surround yourself with beauty, isn’t it? (: Pretty things certainly help.
(and after one look at the left stitch – without reading your text yet – I immediately sang THAT ballad in my head… :) haha)
