Okay ... I am always up for something a wee bit different ... I understand Mr. Hardy designs tee shirts ... though my guess is that his real calling is designing tatoos. I am not sure I am curious enough to actually buy this book but I sure as hell would want to page through it ... just to see what is going on at the fringes [dare I say, lunatic fringes] of cross stitch.
Imagine: 30 charts in this style ... I wonder if I can convince my local librarian to purchase this fine volume so that I and the rest of the stitching public can explore this new venue without undue expense!
And just look at that cover! Such a lovely message, don't you think? Maybe I should stitch this up for Valentine's Day 2011.
