Hi everybody! It’s Saturday, and you know what that means – so if you’re ready, take a moment to drift among Mondopanno’s balloons and then brace yourself!
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!
L3ahKn1ts sent me her latest cross stitch, and it’s a proper eye opener! This piece is 7″ x 5″ (880 stitches on 16ct aida), still using about 50 colors. A cross stitch like this takes time and I was curious to find out about her process for stitching something so arousing.
“I’m mostly making sure I don’t mess up while I’m stitching, lol. I blow the pattern up really big while I work on it so I don’t usually see the full image until I put it down and look at it from a distance. I’ve learned to pay attention to the flow of color in the porn pics I choose too.
“I suppose I do become a little desensitized to it, but once it’s all done I appreciate it as erotic art rather than just porn. Thankfully this one took only a month. I think I had more time to work on it and it was a few inches smaller in each direction.
“Some of my friends have mentioned how it’s a cool concept based on how temporary and disposable porn has become. It’s just something people look for for a specific moment in time. Like they use it and toss it away. And the fact that I’ve created a piece of porn that took time and careful crafting makes it something others can appreciate and analyze for more than just a few moments.”
See? So some of you, it’s far more than just a cross stitched penetration – this piece will linger with you for a long time.
NSFW Saturdays are brought to you in association with Subversive Cross Stitch, the original snarky stitching site!
