Stitchgasm! – Overheard by iamholly


These cross stitches were inspired by overheard statements.

The idea that a random statement someone made in passing was turned into a cross stitch piece that took hours to complete absolutely tickles me. 🙂 Wonderful stuff, iamholly!

  • oh i love these! i’ve been meaning to do some of these with things i’ve overheard as well. here’s one on my list- “one time i saw a picture of a baby with two faces”

  • I love this series!

  • Yay! So exciting to see Holly here. Not only is she a brilliant stitcher but she’s inspired her stitching group so much we’re all creating overheards for an exhibition.

  • Oooh, yes please, Natasha! Definitely let us know – I can’t wait to see more. 🙂

  • I’ll leave it to Holly to tell you more. We’re hoping to set up a blog.

  • oh my! i dont know what to say! i am so honoured to have been featured here! if i’d’ve known i’d’ve ironed them first!!

    me and my stitching group ‘itchin’ for stitchin’ (http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=130651314059&ref=ts) are working towards an exhibition of our overheard stitchings called ’embroidering the truth’ in june, in Hull, so theres lots more in this series! and lots to do! stitching, ironing, framing etc but we’re all very excited! we’re having an all day charity ‘Stitch in’ on may 30th to raise money and have a whole day of glorious uninterrupted stitching! so hopefully get lots done then!

    please visit or facebook group for more information!

    thanks so much for featuring this!
