Warning - Contains Geeks

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Cross Stitch

Pattern Description:

I felt that my home needed a warning (and apparently so did a few others!) so I decided to warn visitors that geeks live here. It's best if people are forewarned!

I created the text especially and based it on actual screenshots of the space invader game. Just in case you're wondering.

This pattern contains no backstitching (yay - I hear you cry!) and it a straightforward pattern to follow. It should take a couple of evenings to stitch up (whilst you're watching the TV, I do it too).

  • 14 Count Aida: 4.5" x 3.2" or 11.5cm x 8.1cm
  • 16 Count Aida: 3.9" x 2.8" or 9.9cm x 7.1cm
  • 18 Count Aida: 3.5" x 2.5" or 8.9cm x 6.4cm
