This is so cute! I remember my Nan having one just like this when I was younger! Gorgeous colour choices too Smiley

Fantastic! I'm moving into my new flat at the city-end of Gt Western on Thursday, I'll be sure to pop in and say hi. I'm absolutely useless at motivating myself to get out and craft so if there's somewhere on my walk home to catch my eye maybe I'll get a bit more done this year! x

this is gorgeous. i love the pencil effect you've created, and the juxtaposition of the sketch on the table runner really works. amazing!

This is immense! I also think Malcolm is one of the most insanely brilliant characters ever created. There are very few days when I don't attempt to use one of his lines...I should probably stop doing that before I seriously offend someone.

I've been a knitter for quite a while, and decided to try something new for 2010. My mum bought me the Sublime Stitching kit for Xmas, but when it hadn't arrived in time she bought me a cross-stitch kit to keep me occupied until it turned up. It was one of those paint-by-numbers kits featuring Winnie the Pooh, which is really not my kinda style - but Mum did recently admit she only chose that one because it had 'Classic Pooh' written in massive letters across it, and she thought that was hilarious. She's nuts, but I love her.

Anyway, I quickly threw away the Winnie the Pooh chart and went to town with all the materials that came with it. There's a whole bunch of stuff here, and I'm very very sorry to admit that a lot of ideas were stolen shamelessly from Miso Funky, who are wonderful and lovely and much much more original than me.

So, stuff. Sorry for all of the crappy photos, Scotland is not good for natural lighting. Or, lighting at all, actually. This is from one of my favourite Pulp songs, and I made it for my friend and fellow Pulp fan Ella, who has been super-ill with the mumps lately. Found a gorgeously battered frame in a charity shop for 90p! Thanks Dundee. That would've been a fiver in Glasgow.

And a close-up..

This one was made for my Dad, who is a true Swiss army knife of a man. Anything that needs doing, Dad's the man to call.

I still need to finish up on the shading, and I'm trying to work out a way to put a bit of knife in at the top, but I have lots of essays that I need to finish. And should actually be doing right now. Whoops.

This is a small sampler that I did for a very good friend of mine. (Boring emo backstory - we dated for a while last year, but called it off when I moved back to the other end of the country. I'm still in love. Le sigh.) Anyway, for a long as I can remember we've had an injoke about how much of a dick he is, so I thought this would be a nice little thing to stitch up.

This was the first thing I stitched up, and I love it. My flat mate and I are in our early 20s, but both love nothing more than sitting in our PJs on the sofa, drinking cocoa and watching Little Women. Her middle name is Martha, and mine is Maud. We are the oldest 20s on Argyle Street. The 'frame' for it was a cigarette box our friend had in freshers week last year, when we first met. He brought a ton of duty-free cigarettes over, and I just knew I had to do something with the boxes. This one is just covered in a shed-load of decoupage paper, and you can't see it here but the 'front' has a little string heart in one corner.

....and a close up of this one.

And here is where the horrible idea-stealing starts. All of these are designs nabbed from Miso Funky, but none of them will be sold. The 'tea' sampler and the 'ROYGBIV' sampler are both going to my Mum for mother's day, and the 'ships' one is going up on my bedroom wall.

(doesn't have an 'in' yet because I haven't found the right shade, but I'm impatient so I wanted to post it!)

(The anchor is actually a really nice gold shade of thread. My phone is awful for photos.)

C+C welcome, sorry for the pic-spam!

LOVE. I made a knitted version a while ago to show my love for the Blur video for 'Coffee and TV', which I'm linking again because it's lovely. clicky. The more versions of this in the world, the better! x

LOVE IT! I'm studying Classics at the moment and just know my tutor would LOVE this. Might have to get my needles out and get working!

this is, as many have said already, amazing. i'm trying to work out how to embroider a piece by irana douer and i'm totally lost as to where to start... how did you change this into a pattern? did you use transfer pens etc? or just wing it? please don't say 'wing it' as i am absolutely hopeless at drawing!
