Sprite Stitch Best Bits – Sept ’14

Sprite Stitch Best Bits

We’ve been deeply embedded in the Sprite Stitch yearly craft swaps this month, but despite that we’ve managed to get a whole series of awesome stitches too!

Our monthly challenge this month was a resurrection of the silhouettes challenge we had 3 years ago, and the current favourite is a Navi by HornyPig. I just love the slightly hidden However there’s still time to vote, so get on over!

Lord Libidan

Born to British Aristocracy, the man now known as Lord Libidan discovered the art of cross stitch while in a Buddhist monastery high in the Himalayan mountains. After meditating on the craft for years, he emerged from his retreat ready to challenge the prevailing paradigm and elevate embroidery to new levels. Focusing his talents on video game and pop culture cross stitches, he produces work that pushes as the boundaries of the form.
