It's another Stitchgasm from Mr X Stitch - the home of contemporary embroidery

Thanks to Katrina for letting us know about her epic Harry Potter sampler. Based on a design by CloudsFactory, it’s on 28ct aida and took Katrina six months. It’s pretty groovy!

It's another Stitchgasm from Mr X Stitch - the home of contemporary embroidery

Way back in the day when I was just starting out with this Mr X Stitch malarkey, I came across Brittany (aka Kveldulv Designs) who was starting an ambitious Slipknot cross stitch. Imagine my surprise when I got an email from her with a finished picture of the work, some six years in the making!

It’s pretty epic – be sure to visit Brittany’s blog to find out more about it!

We featured manbroiderer Paul Nosa on our Cutting (& Stitching) Edge column a while back. His latest project is Sewn Stories, a gallery book of his work, which is inspired by conversations with people and stitched on the fly while he’s with them on his pedal powered sewing station.

Paul Nosa in action

Pauls’ work is great – pedal powered stitching improvisation. I think it’s terrific and this new book is definitely something I want to enjoy.

If you’d like to find out more about Paul’s book, visit his new website and check him out on Facebook.

If you needed further convincing, here’s Paul’s video of a dog sewing a bone on his pedal powered machine.

I love a bit of glow in the dark embroidery and MrXStitch favourite, Robyn Enz has done a fantastic job with this piece, inspired by We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson :

A cup of tea, it seems to me, there’s more going on here than at first we see:
