For some reason lately I've been really drawn to stitching in all one color, specifically different shades of blue.



I did this one using a line from the Radiohead song Paranoid Android. It looks black but in person you can tell it's a nice dark blue.



This stitch was made for the NSFW swap over at the Phat Quarter -  http://www.flickr.com/groups/phatquarter/  The text comes from the book A Farewell to Arms by Ernest Hemingway. I read it when I was a kid, and this is the only thing I clearly remember from it. I know, weird. But I think it made for a pretty stitch. Smiley

I created these patterns by modifying some antique patterns supplied by this great site: http://patternmakercharts.blogspot.com/ - if you're a cross stitcher, you should check it out!

Love these, especially the first, since Paranoid Android is one of my all time favorite songs.
