When Melissa Calderon found herself in a prolonged period of unemployment, she chose to spend her time stitching.
You can see her work on display at Hunter College in New York City in the show entitled Labor. Check it out!
It’s no secret that we love Giggly Mama here at Mr X Stitch. She makes the coolest stuff, and both Mr X and I have both had the honor of meeting the lovely lady herself in person.
So I was super excited to see new work from her – and it’s a Star Wars series to boot! What more could I want?
If you want one of these pieces you can buy them at Giggly Mama’s etsy store. You can also see more of her work in her photostream. You’ll be glad you did!
Thanks to salford1 for letting me know about the amazing feat she accomplished – cross stitching 10 of the 11 Doctors!
I can’t even imagine how long this took her to complete. That is dedication and true fandom. See more detail and more of her work here.
I saw this work posted on tumblr and I love it so much I wanted to share it here.
Holly, who created these pieces, says: As a fairly new analogue photography addict, I have an increasing collection of photo prints and very little room to store them. (I live in a space only marginally bigger than a cupboard.) And since I’m not quite that world-renowned photographer capturing something breathtaking in every frame (yet) I imagine that trying to sell the prints would result in a drop in self-esteem and no increase in storage space.
But then, armed with the knowledge that Carl Sagan makes everything better, I had the idea of using the prints as fabric on which to stitch quotes from the book Cosmos. And so here are the beginnings of my little art project, Postcards From The Cosmos.
This series makes me happy. I can’t wait to see what Holly comes up with next.
