Skottie Young Blog Love

Jesse is amazing, and I'm not just saying that because he's the best husband ever. In addition to making adorable cross stitch patterns he is awesome at introducing me to fantastic artists and blogs he's unearthed on the internet. My most recent blog introduction was to and I am so delighted!

Lately Skottie Young has been involved with the Avengers vs. X-Men project and has been integral to the Marvel Oz series. More than that, his daily sketches have won me over. Check out some of his work!

Isn't he the greatest? I just love that drawing of Rocket Raccoon! And that's just a tiny bit of his work. Go check him out and buy his stuff here!

Stay tuned for more of our favourite blogs, artists and patterns.

Mystery Science Theatre 3000 on Etsy

So as you might have noticed by our Wookie the Chew post, I love me some Star Wars mash-ups. This t-shirt mashes two of my favourite things - Star Wars and Mystery Science Theatre 3000. Tom Servo as R2-D2! Can it get any better?

Mystery Science Theater and Star Wars Mash-Up - via Fashionably Geek

I haven't seen that much MST3K fan art in awhile, so after finding that t-shirt I went on an Etsy bender to discover more fantastic Mystery Science stuff! Unfortunately it was a very short-lived bender. We need more awesome, people! Here's a few samples of what I found:

Tom Servo Print by TimmyK

Blank Card Set by TwoHungryBlackbirds

Tom Servo Necklace by PicaPicaPress

You can probably tell that our favourite MST3K character is little Tom Servo. Also I think that necklace would make a super bottle opener! Someone with mad metal skills should do that. I would buy it.

Stay tuned for more awesome geekery, more Cross Stitch Heroes, and more general awesomeness.

The Dark Knight Cross Stitch Pattern

Recently a super-nice customer requested us to do a custom pattern for her with some of our existing Batman characters and few that we hadn't created yet. This helped to inspire our latest Batman pattern - The Dark Knight. Thanks Rikki! Check it out:

I'm surprised at how scary I find Joker and Two-Face even in 8-bit inspired form! Love it! Stay tuned for tomfoolery, antics and lollygaggin' of all sorts.
