Here’s a cross stitch doodle I did recently to celebrate one of Roommate’s works in progress. A few years have passed since I last spent time doing cross stitch and I have missed it. Embroidery is a delight and the projects I dream up usually call for its freer form, but the calm and predictability of cross stitch never gets old.
The piece is of the twelve characters present in the show, all of whom are actual historical people. For each one, I looked up old photographs, self portraits, and letters describing them and chose the colors, style of dress, and height as accurately as I could.
