Mr X Stitch Presents… Recycled Cross Stitch 001

So by now you’re starting to get a sense of the things that are important to me, and stitching and recycling are up there among them.
So when I picked up this picture among a bunch of others from a charity shop and saw that it had a quality bit of stitchery in it, I knew that I couldn’t just throw it away, there had to be something better that could be done with it.

I pretty much knew what I wanted to do with it, but I let the idea ruminate for a few weeks before having a go. I think it took about ten hours in total to do, spread out over a month.
I’m pretty happy with the way it turned out.

Guess those Victorians get to let it all hang out at the 1970’s disco now. I believe the young lady is even considering showing an ankle! And is it me, or is our gentleman friend looking a bit luckier now that the scene has been set..?
