Stitched by gableknits
Isn't this amazing? I love it when crafters create amazing, updated stuff for cross stitch. And I especially love it when they share the pattern with all of us, for free! Here's the free pattern - thanks so much, gableknits!

Look at that stitching! I love it when you peeps are imaginative and embroider in double lines with different colors... I feel like I could stare at these lovely textures all day. Bravo glazedangel! Oh, and yes, that's from a Sublime Stitching pattern.

Oh good lord, I think I just had a heart attack. My Hispanic heart swells with pride at the mere mention of tamales - but the fact that crf_kitty thought so much of tamales that she immortalized them in ALL FRENCH KNOTS makes me so outlandishly happy I could die. Just look at those knots. I dare you not to want tamales now.

What a lovely combination of block printing and embroidery. The image and the stitching work really well together in this 'folklore' piece. Simple and beautiful and the limited use of colours underlines the simplicity.

basmallah diwaniyah (Islamic cross stitch Pattern), originally uploaded by Ereena.
I love Arabic script and to see it in stitched form is absolutely lovely. Despite the fact that I can't read it and only just make out a few of the letters..
After finding this I searched Flickr to see if there was more embroidery in Arabic. Not a lot, sadly. But let this be an open invite to anyone who does embroidery in Arabic or any other non-Latin alphabet to get in touch. I'd love to showcase it.

And of course, these embroidered portraits bring to mind the amazingly talented Ms. Hart. I finally saw a few of Jenny's portraits in person last week and I almost passed out from their sheer amazingness. Keep the portrait spirit alive, peeps!

Stitched by JulieFrick
When your stitching is as amazing as JulieFrick's, it creates a certain conundrum. It's so beautiful, will people actually use it? :) As for myself I might dab my hands around the image, but I would never want to yuck up her embroidery.
How about you? For your embroidered projects - to use, or not to use? :)
P.s. That's a Sublime Stitching design, by the way!

I have long been in awe of the wonderful stitching prowess of bookwormbethie. But Georgette the mouse really seals the deal for me - isn't this cuteness incarnate? Ok, maybe not incarnate, because it's on a tea towel. But, you get what I mean, right? Wonderful! Visit her blog for more on this mouse.

All of these wonderful amazingly talented people are on flickr and can be found in the embroidery group.
You're probably used to our daily awesome Flickr finds. What you might not know, however, is that I'm constantly freaking out over all the amazing stuff I find in the Embroidery pool. I couldn't possibly blog every single awesome thing I find, because then there'd be, like, 3,000 posts per day. (OK, I exaggerate - but only a tiny bit!)
Enter, Twitter! Carina and I will be using Twitter to point out even more cool stuff as we find it, on Flickr, and elsewhere on the web. So subscribe to us and get ready for more awesome!
