Cross-Stitch Ninja

The work of Cross-Stitch Ninja again highlights the possibilities of using just one stitch. In the following pieces she takes the one pixel to one stitch approach and replicates these classic game screens. I was just having a conversation earlier today about how pixels relate to weave structure, one box or one stitch at a time, new technology and old processes. It was fun to discover this work as it was already in my brain waves today.

As we say in Savannah, “Nuff Said!”

On another note, thank you all for your interest in our project. We are so excited to see the Stitch Spectacular come together and even more excited to see all of your amazing embroidery work. As we continue to get new questions we are trying to stay updated on our FAQ page, so keep checking in.
