Stitched Up News

I don't think I ordered that from my favorite ONS:

The same story with the "not your grandmother's stitching" spin. Hell that's not even my stitching. (And PS you do not know my grandmother.)

Need an idea for your next tat?

Roll out the Doctor.

Celebrity face in cross-stitch. This is the weirdest story: guy cross-stitches Marilyn Monroe piece in honor of the 52nd year of her death. Was he just two years late in thinking of it? And why is the newspaper covering it? There is like one sentence related to the stitching, and the rest of the article is fleshed out with Monroe trivia. Of course, I have now written nearly as many words about the article as the article has. And in clicking through, we will send the wrong message. The Burton Mail will be all, "hot damn! Look at all those hits! Let's run that article about the nun who created the portrait of Cardinal Romero with hot dogs!"

Now that's a picture. Aren't you glad I read the internet for you?

And to think I have to board buses and airplanes and ship stuff. It will never be safe to say "it's just cross stitch" again.

Thanks for sharing! We all know our hobby is addictive!

The tattoos are amazing, I've thought of charting my tattoos and stitching them but never the other way round. The top one was a little too realistic for some people though!

I love The Doctor piece, especially the attention to detail, opposite sides add up to thirteen! I am rather tempted by that one.

As for the Marilyn fan, I am wondering what he will do for the big one next year, the first anniversary of her 52nd anniversary!
