31  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Stitching on my honeymoon on: August 31, 2008 05:45:46 AM
So I got married on 8th August 2008 to my beautiful wife Alissa, and we went to Guernsey on honeymoon.
I took one of my cross stitch WIPs on holiday with us, but while we were out there we popped into a little craft shop in St. Sampson and bought a DMC pack of letter samplers. It had some linen in it, so I thought I'd do an A & J intertwined while on honeymoon as a nice creation to mark the occasion.
We found a picture frame and mounted it when we got home.

I'll take some better close-ups of it soon.
32  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Samplers from an exhibition I did... on: August 27, 2008 06:23:59 AM
Hi again,
Just thought I'd show you some of the samplers I did for a recent exhibition organised by a friend. I managed to make the six samplers in about six weeks, and went slightly loopy as a consequence.
But I was glad with the way they came out.
Anyway, here's three of my favourites:




The callouses on my fingers have faded now, as I begin preparations for another exhibition at the end of the year.
Enjoy!

Hi there,
I'm Jamie, AKA Mr X Stitch.
Been cross stitching for a few years now and am just starting an etsy business of cross stitch patterns. I've got two series at the moment, supercars and graffiti patterns.
But anyway, I didn't come on here to flog my wares, I came on here to say hi and to show you my latest creation.
I found a book of blackwork letters in a tiny needlepoint shop on the island of Guernsey and decided to do the following:


I've done a few other bits and bobs in my time, and had a few samplers exhibited at a local art exhibition - I'll post some pics from that later on.
I hope you like it, and if you don't, well... whatever...  Grin
