The Grid

Look! I'm in print!

A weekly magazine here in Toronto called me up last month and asked if I knew anyone who might be able to design and stitch the title of their next issue on short notice. Yes, I did. How about me?

A few days later, the finished cross stitch was packed up and sent to the photographer by way of courier. A few days after that, it appeared on the cover of The Grid magazine in stands all over the city! As I was working that morning, a search posse (family) was organized and many issues were scooped.


(And no, I did not stitch the work in that wooden hoop! I never use circular hoops with Aida cloth; they would have left really bad hoop marks. I used a Q-Snap frame. Dang those stylists!)
