My favorite craft projects will always be those where Rich and I collaborate, this project was a joint Trees and Rich project. Rich designed the pattern, I stitched it up and Rich framed it perfectly (I HATE framing my cross-stitch, it ALWAYS looks wonky).
A bit of background - basically no-one in the universe loves the Alien series as much as Ross. He booked us all tickets to Prometheus when it came out last year and set up a mini Alien film festival and dinner and his house prior to the release.
A few years ago, Rich stenciled Ross an Alien t-shirt for his birthday and he was so stoked. We both thought this Aliens cross-stitch would go down a treat and it did - happy Ross.
