Cross-stitch for Nerds

By Gerard @presurfer
Cross-stitch for Nerdsimage credit
Cross-stitch: one of the oldest forms of embroidery known to humanity has something of an image problem. Many people associate it with little old ladies sitting by the fire, brows furrowed and determinedly executing a multitude of X-shaped stitches in a tiled, raster-like pattern.
The result? The alphabet perhaps, or maybe even Home Sweet Home. Hold on, though. Cross-stitch has come a long way since those days. The platitudes are gone: cross-stitch has come home and nerds live there.
