Over at Mr X Stitch we’re blessed with the services of Beefranck, the Queen of Ironic Stitching, who curates the terrific “Emporium of Embroidered Excellence and Splendiferous Stitchery”. Each week, these posts explore themes expressed through embroidery, and they’re ace. So without further ado, I welcome you to…


This week I wanted to take a look at a new cross stitcher on the scene who has been making me laugh on a regular basis, Sarah P. Fisher.

Sarah is a master of juxtaposition, like this wholesome take on a memorable quote from the movie 300.

She takes old-fashioned cross stitch motifs and fonts and mixes them with modern inspirations, like the Beastie Boys.

Here she commemorates the taunting scene from Monty Python’s Holy Grail.

Some works are just general statements about life.

And some are more specific variations on the same theme.

Whatever their message, I’m enjoying them all. 🙂

See more from Sarah at her etsy store or her flickr photostream – fun things await!

Beefranck is the Queen of Ironic Stitching and is responsible for a lot of stuff on, the number one contemporary embroidery and needlecraft blog on the planet. She is also the top selling pattern designer in the MrXStitch etsy store.
She can often be found hanging out in the Phat Quarter group on Flickr and co-hosts Emergency Pants, a podcast that is not for the faint hearted!

    Holy shit! I love them all! I love the juxtaposition of something so homey, and quaint as cross stitching, with such bold statements. All the Better the art is classic. Love it.
