Great article from Yahoo DIY today about Needlepoint here.
You know, any of my patterns can be turned into needlepoint. For example, the two pillows above that Urban Outfitters produced a year or so ago — these came from cross stitch designs of mine. You can always add more in the foreground if you don’t want to stitch a lot of the same color background. Experiment, jazz it up! See what happens! And send me photos if you do. Happy New Year!
After my last post about Shannon Downey extreme cross stitching, I received this amazing photo and email from Kirsty G:
Good morning from the UK!
I’ve just seen the photo of the extreme cross sticher on Facebook and I thought I’d share my most extreme photo with you too. Obviously, great subversive cross stitchers think alike!
My husband is in the UK Military and is currently deployed. While he’s away I try and raise money for charity by doing silly things (it keeps me busy!). This year my friends have been setting me various challenges. I am currently in the middle of “50 photos of extreme cross stitching”. The photo attached is my most extreme so far. It was taken on the Falkland Islands (in the South Atlantic) last week and it’s next to a mine field.
Well…wow! I couldn’t wait to share with you, but I did because when I asked if she had more photos, she created this blog to share more of her adventures with us! Go check out her amazing photos and all the extreme situations she managed to cross stitch in. And she’s doing it all for charity — if you donate to her cause, you can suggest a new challenge for her! From the looks of the photos, I think she’s up for it! Way to go, Kirsty!
