Hi Peoples,
It's been a while since I posted a pic on here, so here's two little things I've managed to produce of late.
Sorry for the crap picture quality.

First of all FestEvil, a little poem stitch that I wrote while on a less-than-amazing holiday at a festival.


Second up, Imperius Rex, stitched as a christening gift for Rex, the son of some close friends. Used annoying gold light effects thread for the crown.


And finally a work in progress, just got to finish the back stitching on it:


Kthxbai!  Grin

Nice work! Having just returned from Lollapalooza, I'm digging the poem a great deal. I am also a sucker for anything LOLcat, so I love your kthxbai, as well.

The poem is wonderful, the christening gift is fabulous, and I'm a crazy cat lady so the lolspeak is ....well, let's just say it's a good thing you're across the pond so I can't break into your house and steal it! Grin

I'm digging the poem...mostly because of the fabric rip/coming apart at the bottom. Like your mood was really that pissy when you worked on it!

Great stuff as always

Hah! Thanks James! You are the first person to spot the burning hidden subtext within my poetry piece! It wasn't just that I messed up at all... Nossir!  Roll Eyes  Grin

Thanks for all your nice words peoples. I had missed posting something on here, so it's nice to hear from you all.  Cheesy
