Stitchgasm! – Blue Velvet X-Stitch by poppet with a camera

When I stumbled upon this cross stitch on flickr, I gasped.


The creepy glamour of the scene is expertly stitched. Poppet with a camera captured Dennis Hopper’s madness, his longing and even the slimy shine on his ether-sucking face. And how about the dour, blue eye-shadowed beauty of Isabella Rossellini? Stitched as she is against the black aida fabric, she looks like a broken, Mannerist Madonna straight from a 16th Century Italian painting.

OK, a wild Madonna.

David Lynch would be proud.

Stunning work by poppet with a camera! check out more of her work in her flickr stream.
