I spend a lot of time with an embroidery hoop in my hands these days, and when I’m not stitching, I’m looking for new patterns to follow. I’ve come across some really amazing bookish designs, and I’ve collected just a few of them for you to gaze at in appreciation. I included links to the source, and, whenever possible, I linked to patterns. If you’re so inclined, I hope you’ll try one out.
Smaug and the Lonely Mountain
In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit…
A wizard is never late…
The Eye of Sauron
All was well.
Fred and George
I open at the close.
The Princess Bride
Anybody want a peanut?
Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya…
As you wish.
The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
Don’t Panic and Carry a Towel
So long and thanks for all the fish.
Time is an illusion. Lunchtime doubly so.
This will all end in tears.
