[Stitch Up]

I love a good bit of knitting/cross-stitching and scarf making – but I’ve never quite mastered it. Infact all I can do is knit in a straight line, or follow one of those ‘my first cross stitch’ houses.

I saw these familiar images on the Cellardoor blog and totally fell in love. Geeky fashion is totally where my heart lies. Not only is the Rosie cover one of my most recent favourites, but the talent behind them, Inge Jacobsen, is from Kingston Uni (very close to me). A bit of home-grown cross-stitching talent!

“I start the covers by making holes with a needle; this prevents the paper getting too damaged when I start sewing it. This can take a few hours depending on the cover. Then it’s a case of very carefully cross-stitching the whole thing,” explains Jacobsen.

So it appears stitching is back in Vogue…literally – and I would quite like one in my house, in a frame.
