This will really tie the room together…

21 Dec

It got down to the wire, but I finally finished my uncle’s Lebowski cross stitch.

Thanks to the brilliant and talented Andy Rash for the design and inspiration! I’m sure I’ll be creating pieces using more of his work in the future.

This is a beautiful compliment to the Helluva Caucasian truffles I got him from Twice the Vice. Hopefully he’ll be as excited as I am about it.

    😀 Really amazing craft! I actually know first hand that this must have taken you a looong time to complete, as I also crossstitched a piece of Andy’s – Pulp Fiction. You and him are so talented!

    If you don’t mind me asking, how did you get such good definition in the details? In mine, the features are less well defined and “full”, particularly in faces or details in clothes, when only 1 square was covered (nose, eye). I used 2 threads throughout.

    Thanks for showing the piece. It’s absolutely beautiful. x

      Thanks, Laura!

      For this piece I used four threads over 14 count Aida. This allowed for a fullness with the small features.

      Andy’s material is great fun to stitch. So glad you enjoy it!
