Shakespeare and plotting…

02 Feb

For a while now I’ve been thinking of embarking on an epic cross-stitch series, designing and stitching on a set theme. After dithering for I while, I eventually hit on a theme – Shakespearean quotes. But not just any quotes. Bloody quotes. A series of original designs, with quotes from Shakespeare containing the word blood.

Why? Because I can.

And here is the first in the Bloody Shakespeare series: Bloody Bold.

The crown was sourced from the Antique Pattern Library; the quote is from Macbeth, Act 4, Scene 1. In time, it will get a snazzy frame and proper pics…

The next piece in the series will stick with the same play, with words from Lady Macbeth’s madness.

Stay tuned for more Bloody Shakespeare…
