Stitched Up.

My Mum couldn't find a case for her Kindle that she liked, so she cross-stitched her own. It's based on some fairly traditional inspirations - part illuminated manuscripts, part Arabic motifs and part Elizabethan sampler. I'm not sure if that was precisely her aim creatively speaking, but I approve of the resultant look and the goldwork. After all, this type of embroidery should speak to the digital creative in all of us, since it's exactly the same as working with pixels.

Hmmm...wonder what else she could stitch up. She's already done Sage Francis's portrait, the A-Z of the penis and the sampler to end all samplers (reminders below).
