cross stitched inspiration

April 23, 2011 by mrsjennyryan

I somehow missed this image when it was making the blog rounds a while back, but found it via my pal Jenny Hart’s blog on the Sublime Stitching site. This blown-up cross stitch mural was painted by designer Eline Pellinkhof and I couldn’t love it more! Something about blowing up and hand-painting something as “fussy” as a pink rose turns it into something unexpected and thoroughly modern. I am utterly inspired!

On a simliar note, how great are Jenny’s new designs for iPhone cases by Uncommon? The blue one is definitely on my wish list when I need to replace my current case. I think they’re sweet but not at all saccharine, which is a delicate balance she strikes oh so well. On a related note, I’m gonna have some exciting Sublime Stitching stuff to give away on this here blog soon, so stay tuned for that.

While I was nosing around on the internet looking at fun cross-stitched stuff, I came across these pop-culture inspired patterns from Pixel People. That teeny Admiral Akbar in the Star Wars set rocks so hard. “IT’S A CRAFT!!”

    Dude. Any Admiral Akbar-related humor always makes me laugh out loud. That guy is comedy gold!
