For Coral

Regarding the celebrity face in cross stitch, Coral said she might stitch someone famous, like Marilyn Monroe. Which reminds me...


Given how regularly I make fun of the B-list celebrity face in cross stitch, I probably should be embarrassed to show you this. But I'm not. Because it's not a face. Not a whole face. The pattern is by Dimples Designs. It's Marilyn Monroe, but my dad, a huge fan for whom I stitched this, didn't recognize her. But he did appreciate how many tiny exes there are; it's stitched over one on 22 count fabric with the called for DMC.

And I think David Tennant's mum getting a cross stitch of his face from one of her friends is brill...I might have to rent the DVD!

If you want to rent just the disc with that scene on it, I think it is Season 2, Disc 6 - part of DT's "Video Diaries". Netflix has it.

No need to rent! I found it through the wonder of google! I'll post it on my blog because I can never get long links to work in Blogger comments.

Those Marilyn eyes are lovely! (And just imagine not having to do the whole face - a bargain)! Tee Hee

Thank you for showing me!

Oh, and if I live in a country with 11 official languages where does that come into your poll?

More giggles!!

I am actually English and live in South Africa.

Love the Marilyn piece - I'm surprised your dad didn't recognize her.

Great work on the MM facial snippet. Those eyes are easily recognizable; your dad must have cracked under the pressure of being on the spot. ;)
