NSFW Saturday – Donna’s Bookmark


Mr X Stitch presents NSFW Saturday - the naughtiest needlework on the planet!

Hi everybody! It’s Saturday, and you know what that means – before we get too rude, take a moment to enjoy the artistry of Mother Eagle’s Midwinter Fox and then dive in!

WARNING!

NSFW SATURDAYS WILL CONTAIN CONTENT THAT IS NOT SAFE FOR WORK!

IF YOU READ THESE POSTS, AND ARE OFFENDED, WE’RE SORRY BUT WE DID WARN YOU!

Thanks to Donna for sharing this lovely little bookmark and telling us how it came to be: “I just get tired of seeing the same old boring platitudes like “Keep Calm and Keep Reading” bullshit. I’m pretty sure that I saw the saying on a website like Subversive Cross Stitch, I used the font from an old book I got at Lee Wards in the 1980’s. I loved the varigated DMC floss and found a use for it in the border. The hearts are just because it needed hearts. My friend Monique loved it so I made a few for her to give to friends.”

Another example of the wonderful way cross stitch brings people together. And then tells them to fuck off.

NSFW Saturdays are brought to you in association with Subversive Cross Stitch, the original snarky stitching site!
