When the big hand meets the little hand.

I made this for a girl who has amazing taste pretty much everywhere else, her obsession with Micheal Jackson being pretty much her only lapse as far as I can tell. Anyway, I found the pattern somewhere on the web, but can't for the life of me remember where. It called for a single colour, but I used a combination of black and purple threads to give it a jazzier look. If I have time I plan on making a frame with rhinestones around it.
Ten points if you get the title. ;)

Instead of shooting where I was....

This one combines my love of Futurama, Geekdom, and X Stitch. It took about a day, but over a series of days as I kept getting distracted by shiny things and getting bored. I want to do more Space Invaders, as they are such cute little guys, even if they are currently en vogue, and absolutely everywhere. The way I see it is don't let a Hallensteins t-shirt stop your love of geeky things. Because in a few months, the jocks will be corrupting something new, and this will still be awesome!

Wii Stitch.

I saw this when looking for geeky pictures for Valentines day, and decided it would make a good xstitch. I was going to make a pattern, but then decided I couldn't be fucked, ending up just playing it by air, and hoping for the best. I'm quite pleased with how it turned out, and it started my obsession with geek stitch. I think its romantic in its own special way, and a huge amount of love went into it, even if it is somewhat silly.
