Putting the “need” in needlework

Cool cross-stitch from bombastitch on EtsyAny hipster with a scarf can tell you: The fiber arts are enjoying a renaissance. I can knit (poorly) and spin (horribly), and I sometimes consider trying needlepoint. But no kittens and flowers for me. No, I’d start with the wacky but lovely PDFs from bombastitch to make a charming Valentine’s or Father’s Day gift.

Okay, fine. Knowing my life right now, I’d just order a finished piece.

The wonderful bombastitch
offers a selection of hilariously sharp cultural references
through the fine and noble art of cross-stitch. From Tron and Dexter to
Donnie Darko and the Blues Brothers to a definitive answer of who shot first for you Star Wars fans, there is honestly something for everyone. I’m particularly smitten with that orange Godzilla cross-stitch, which perfectly matches the mural in my son’s room. And the frames are just plain adorable.

what’s really cool is that you can get a finished and framed piece, a
DIY kit, or just an emailed PDF. She’s open to custom items, too, in
case you really need to see a True Blood quote or the soulful eyes of
Greg House stitched in tiny X’s. ~Delilah
