11  Gift for my sister in Needlework: Completed Projects by MrXStitch on: May 19, 2009 01:31:00 AM
It's my sister's 14th birthday soon, and traditionally I totally forget about it.
Not this year!

She's a black belt martial artist, so it didn't take long for me to choose what to do for her.

It has normal threads, shiny threads and the whitework is all done in glow in the dark. I hope she likes it!

12  Home Sweet Homo in Needlework: Completed Projects by MrXStitch on: April 22, 2009 02:43:14 PM
I wanted to do a piece for a gay couple I know who need to decorate their home and make it their own. I figured that I could give them a stitchery that would inspire them to create a nice space for it to live in. They've owned their home for at least a year and have done no decorating at all - terrible.

Anyway, I'm a massive Julie Jackson fan and her Homo Sweet Homo piece was my first thought. But I wanted to make something original for them and so I mulled the concept over for a while and came up with the following.



Yes, the trees are shaped like penises, and therefore are known as "Trenises"
And those are meant to be little birds that turn into love hearts.

It's all pink and sparkly and gay as hell. I think they'll love it.

13  Crib Sweet Crib in Needlework: Completed Projects by MrXStitch on: April 18, 2009 03:39:08 PM
Ages ago one of my neighbours mentioned that he'd like a sort of ghetto style sampler for his home.
Today I got hit by a bolt of inspiration and knocked up the following. It's on a three inch hoop, black aida, glow in the dark thread.



Word.  Cool

14  Pulp Fiction Wallet Stitch - Bad Mofo - NSFW in Needlework: Completed Projects by MrXStitch on: April 05, 2009 03:21:16 AM
Hi Peoples!
This first picture is nothing to do with my work but will appear in the thumbnail for this post. It's the hitmen from Pulp Fiction in Lego form. Aww...


Right, so now that's out of the way onto my piece.
I think I'm still processing this whole manbroidery thing and I keep wanted to do pieces that assert my masculinity. So we had this one - http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=299006.0 - and now this.

Based on the phrase on the wallet of the hitman played by Samuel L Jackson on Pulp Fiction. The design isn't the greatest, but it's pretty faithful to the original.

Don't know what I'll do next, but I'm sure my therapist would approve (if he was real).

15  Twin pointed quick stitch needles in Needlework: Discussion and Questions by MrXStitch on: April 02, 2009 12:40:14 PM
I've just bought some of these - they have the eye in the middle and two ends for stitching:


I don't know if they're a new thing or not, but them seem pretty groovy. Anybody got any experience of using them?

Well, although it's not the same piece, here's some proof of my trainular stitcherisation (?)

17  Assertion of Self in Needlework: Completed Projects by MrXStitch on: March 30, 2009 03:34:08 PM
I went to a stitching show the other week and bought a grab bag of aida - you know, all bits and bobs - there was some nice black stuff and some groovy brown 24ct evenweave. And then there was this piece of band that had silver edging.
And I looked at it and decided to do something with it.

Coincidentally I've been a lot more public with my stitching, doing it on trains and in public places, and it's been an interesting experience for me and surprisingly emotional. So with all that in mind...



Because I am.  Cool

19  Celebrity Misdemeanour 001 in Needlework: Completed Projects by MrXStitch on: March 21, 2009 01:04:16 AM
Celebrities are a mischievous bunch and I thought it about time I pointed out some of their shenanigans.

First up, star of Transformers and FHM magazine's sexiest woman of 2009 - Megan Fox.



I dunno, celebrities, eh? Can't live with them, and privacy laws prevent you being allowed to sit in trees outside their houses watching them on binoculars...  Grin

20  Re: What's your favorite type of hoop or frame? in Needlework: Discussion and Questions by MrXStitch on: March 01, 2009 12:06:24 PM
I think it's different strokes for different folks, however if I'm doing on of my bigger projects, I use a proper stitching frame affair, which can be clipped onto my handy dandy floor-standing frame:


The good thing about this type of frame is that it keeps the tension, but you don't get the dreaded hoop marks.

However I do love stitching things in little four inch hoops and keeping them as the frames!

I made the decision to invest in the floor standing frame a while back, but I'm glad I did as it means I have both hands free for stitching and I can clip the pattern and other bits to the frame as well.
