Star Wars Saga Cross-Stitched Tapestry

When I came across this project at Makezine, I knew that I had to share it.  I don’t think that the picture does it justice, but it gives you an idea about how amazing this cross-stitched tapestry is.

Artist Aled Lewis created this 30-foot long, cross-stitched tapestry on a 7 stitch per inch fabric and it has scenes from the entire Star Wars saga.  While I don’t have the budget to add this beautiful piece to my home, perhaps I could use it as inspiration to make my own…but on a much smaller scale of course.

Halloween Cross Stitch Pattern

It won’t be long before little trick or treaters will be ringing my doorbell. To help get in the spirit and give my house a festive Halloween decor, I think I’ll start working on this adorable Hoot Owl Cross Stitch Pattern.

Halloween Cross Stitch PatternI like this pattern because it has all of the typical fall colors, so I can keep it up for Halloween and Thanksgiving.  This design isn’t too difficult, yet it has enough detailing to make it fun and interesting.  I think I should be able to get it done pretty quickly and have it on display in a few weeks.  It’s a good project to take on the road too, since there are plenty of blocks of colors that I can do while waiting in the car for my kids at school.
