It helps when you are a crafty girl to be with a crafty boy - my partner Rich is extremely talented in every creative area he tries. A few years ago I introduced him to cross-stitch (he likes it because he says it reminds him of computer pixels) here's a few designs he has come up with and stitched over the years.
The space invaders were actually a joint project we made for our friend Ross for his birthday (they are fridge magnets) but everything else is all Rich.
As you may have guessed from some of the cross-stitches above - Rich loves robots and has thought a lot about making a book of robot stitched crafts.
He's decided to start out a little smaller with an esty store called Robot Soon where he is selling a whole bunch of cute patterns. Here's a couple of his designs to date.
First up is "Peace, Love and Pi".
Second is "Santabot"wishing you a Merry Christmas.
Now I've shown you the designs it's time for my first ever GIVEAWAY on this blog! If you'd like to win either of these patterns just leave a comment below stating which pattern you prefer and why you love robots. Rich will choose the winners and e-mail them a copy of the pattern so that they can get stitching.
Giveaway entries close on 30 November so you've got a whole heap of time to think of a great answer. Rich will decide the winners on 1 Decemeber and send out the patterns via e-mail.
