Swap Stitches

The Phat Quarter, the official flickr group for MrXStitch, is in the middle of a comic themed swap right now. Floresita already shared the amazing Tract Embroidery from snarkypants - here's a few more of my favorites pieces from the swap so far.

Finished Persepolis 001

Panels from Persepolis stitched by feminizzle

Because everyone has days like this.

A Natalie Dee comic stitched by carrie_76

This is just the tip of the iceberg. By the time the swap is complete, there will be over 30 comic inspired pieces stitched by some seriously talented people. I'll be showcasing each one of them at MrXStitch over the next few weeks. Be sure to join the Phat Quarter if you would like to participate in our next swap. I don't know what the theme will be, but I do know it's always a lot of fun. :)
