Hi Peoples!

Sorry I've not been around much lately, but y'know I've got this blog thang that's keeping me pretty busy.
Anyway, once upon a time I stitched this piece, with the phrase Rock Out With Your Cock Out on it.

That piece was okay, but when I got the chance to do a swap with an awesome artist called MimiLoveForever and she made me this, which was amazing! So I revisited my favourite phrase...





I found a high count evenweave and chose a tidy tent stitch. The effect is meant to be a bit like a Wedgwood plate, and there's a hidden surprise inside the Cockerel, in the form of a glow in the dark X.

I hope you like it. Smiley

I really love this stitch. Smiley The first one is great, but I think this really shows how your stitching and designs have evolved in a really short time. Well done, sir!

Love this!  I just picked up embroidery, but I'm hoping to get into cross-stitching sometime really soon...  I think the hidden X is brilliant too and it's giving me loads of idea for my glow-in-the-dark thread...

Thanks!

You do nice work but I got to tell you, coming across that sure shocked me. Maybe i am just getting old but I know a lot of youngsters come on here and i don't think they will pay attention to the censored in the title. It may even make them look if they know what it means. Perhaps I am just out of the loop. I didn't notice it until I had already clicked on it. I just clicked on "recent post with pics". If we are going to have things like this on here, I wish we could have a special place for them and not where you will scroll past them by accident.  Shocked JMHO

Love it  Grin  I don't really see what's so offensive about it?  You can easily hear much worse things by simply turning on a radio or basic cable sitcoms... I say, rock on wit yo bad self.
