Wow, it's been a long time since I posted something on here. But it's good to show that I can do more than just come on here and offer (occasionally) amusing responses to other people's work.
That's mainly because I've been concentrating on making my blog all nice. You can visit it at www.mrxstitch.com
(Looking out for limbo stick)
Where I post about contemporary embroidery stuff and other nonsense.
(Still looking for limbo stick, ready to duck if necessary)
So come one, come all and help me make it a great place to visit. I'd love to hear from you!
On to business.
A friend of mine called Jill Kitchen asked me ages ago about doing a bespoke piece for her husband for Xmas. After a bit of pondering I came up with the following...
One thing that's nice is that Jill's an artist and we're bartering - I'm getting a signed copy of a picture she did of our town in exchange for my piece.
Just have to hand wash it, iron it and frame it and Bob's your mother's brother.
Hope you like it.
And hope to see you at my blog sometime.
My name's Mr X Stitch and you've been a lovely audience.
