I've finally had a chance to break open one of my new embroidery thread packs and try out some ideas for sampler brooches:I don't think I've done cross stitch since I was about 10 years old, it's so interesting to go back and rediscover its charms! All that lovely repetitive stitching is wonderfully relaxing and I'm loving the challenge of how to render things in pixels.

They look great! I've not cross-stitched in ages . . . but you're right, it is very relaxing as you do the same movement again and over and again . . . !

LOL those are really cute. I do pixel conversions of video game things into cross stitch sometimes.
Will you make these into brooches?
