I made this silhouette cross-stitch from a still from the 2006 BBC version of Jane Eyre (the one with Toby Stephens and Ruth Wilson). It's from the fireplace scene, right after Jane puts out the fire in Rochester's bedroom. I thought silhouette art would be perfect for a Victorian piece, and used Gimp to make the chart from the movie still. It's stitched in black floss on 28-ct linen, and measures 6"x6". I was inspired as part of the Bronte-Along (check out eggplantia.com for info on that fun project). It took me more than a month to complete, but that's because I'm a slowpoke and have other projects going on at the same time.




The chart is available for free on my blog here:

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

A wonderful book, a wonderful film-scene - and wonderful stitching  Wink
