Yesterday, I told you about the great new cross-stitch kit called Miss Woolly’s Mini Cross-Stitch. I think I’ve been so obsessed with cross-stitch these last couple of weeks that it’s now most of what I’m seeing. I think, though, that even without that predisposition to seeking out cross-stitch, this amazing Houdini portrait in cross-stitch would have caught my eye. She Fights Like a Girl created this incredibly intricate piece as a birthday gift for Teller (yep – as in Penn and Teller!) She details how she created the pattern and how long it took her to painstakingly stitch – with single strands of floss – the Houdini design on her blog. I hope she was able to hand deliver it as she wanted to!
