Inspired by Needle Noodles Creepy Cute Cross Stitch (http://needlenoodles.com/home/?q=node/79), Lego Star Wars (could you imagine if there was a Lego Firefly, wouldn't that be amazing?) and this Jayne's Hat cross stitch (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=334199.0) I decided to try my hand at creating some Firefly related cross stitches. I spent last week creating the character designs and then much of the last seven days stitching it all together. The lettering was borrowed from Better Homes & Gardens 2001 Cross Stitch Designs, with some modifications (I really don't know why that book doesn't believe in half stitches.).

This piece is going to be donated to the B.C. Browncoats for the silent auction they'll be holding during this year's Can't Stop the Serenity screening, where proceeds go to Joss Whedon's favourite charity, Equality Now.

And now on to more pictures. Please feel free to offer some feedback, I'm still thinking of tweaking the designs a bit before I make final copies. I realize Mal is missing a row, making him a bit shorter than everyone else. Must fix that. Anyways, I'd love to hear what others think...

Thanks for looking,

I've started my own crochet blog, have a look...http://cthulhucrochet.blogspot.com/

OMG!  That is awesome!  I started the Jayne hat quote cross stitch.  If you ever decide to share this pattern, I'd love love to give it a go, you did a lovely job

I've only seen a few episodes of firefly, but can easily pick out who is who! These are super cute!

Haha, somehow the first thing that came to mind when I saw the thumbnail was Firefly! I love this so much, its amazing!

Wash and River really come through very well. They all do, but those two really stand out. I love the look on Mal's face, and the thread combo you used to make Kaylee's jumpsuit. Fantastic!

You are the definitive awesome.  I just adore that little angry!face Jayne ... everywhere I go, his eyes keep following me...
I'm not really one for cross stitch, stabbed my fingers with the needle too many times as a kid, but this?  This ROCKS.

That is awesome!  I wish I had the patience for hand work - I would hang that up proudly in my house - just too cute!
