Stitching of a bit from a Leonard Cohen poem. Super messy, but then it was just stitching to stitch, in order to keep the mind and hands busy. And of course it is National Poetry Month.
It’s hung up there with poster tape. Not permanently, I mostly just wanted to show the whole thing, and that handkerchief was ridiculously thin so it had to be against something white.
I’m obscenely proud of that little shrapnel grenade, and also the warhorses — just you wait until y’all see the camels.
Again, for scale, those horses are just over half an inch from tail to nose.
Awesome! This is why I so love blackwork. You can come up with your own amazing designs so quickly and they look awesome.
This is going to be a wedding gift for two friends of mine who love Hyperbole and a Half.
The original pattern was 100% full stitches and looked pretty sloppy. I mixed in copious amounts of quarter stitches for more precise lines, stitched it on pink cloth, and added the hearts and the text.
This may be my masterpiece.
