the bridal shower cross stitch collection
much like my quilting & sewing phases, my desires to cross stitch comes in waves. though in this case, the waves are few and far between. i don't know what gets me in the mood to do such things, but once i have an idea, i go for it. in this case, i started off with one idea. then two. then i think it turned in to five or six before i finished my last one. i wanted to add some nerdy themed/quote decor to the bridal shower in a way that could be used for home decor in the future without being to blah. i had made aileen 2 cross stitch pieces in the past for various things, and so i decided for some reason she needed more. i started with lord of the rings, then rolled in to star wars. followed it up with a little binary & parks and recreation. lastly, i topped everything off with a classic princess bride quote. these all sat on a glass case, each in their own frame (as seen in the previous bridal shower post) with all the photos of ben & aileen surrounding them. the positive responses were great, and absolutely made the time it took to make them all worth it. half the patterns i found on etsy, while others just appeared on pinterest and i had to graph them out on my own. without delay, here's the cross stitch parade!
