springtime! and time to take the city back with some guerrilla gardening. may this inspire you as I hope it will the fine citizens of London. take initiative. spread the craft, spread the seed. all in a days work.

all credit to Rennie Mackintosh for the flowers in the second one of course.

happy craftivism and enjoy the sunshine

My camera is out of commission at the moment but figured someone might be inspired by some of my older bike promotion cross stitch patterns to hang out on peoples bikes.

sorry, this is a bit image heavy

believe bikeriding is the future for a sustainable urban environment. usually I prefer promoting bike riding with positive messages aimed at the benefits of bikes rather than focusing on the negatives of cars but I like this image so much I decided to make an exception.

this is my most ambitious 'hang out on bicycle' project yet. based on an old Lex Drewinski poster from 1993, http://www.politicalgraphics.org/cgi-bin/album.pl?photo=21earth_wind_04%2F135%20PG_14715.jpg and revamped for x-stitch.

My pattern is by no means perfect so feel free to update and improve it. If you like the design you can grab the pattern in pdf format at http://axstitchintime.files.wordpress.com/2010/01/gas-mask-pattern-updated1.pdf

haven't had the chance to hang this out on a bike yet as i have been working from home and riding less than I would like. so, if you are lucky, live in London and ride a bike, it could be you that finds it one sunny morning.

been working on a craftivist bike project using the image of a bike.
took me a while to work out the best way to do mini-bikes.

started out with this one, a bike design I had seen somewhere else online:

but descided I disliked the symetry A-line shape of the bike so started tweeking it

heart versions

a bit up to the individual, but think I like this last one the best, though have not yet added a heart design to it:
