Doodle Stitching Inspired

I received an email from someone today who found my book and decided to give embroidery a try. Every time I hear this it makes my day! This one is doubly cool though, because this guy is, well, a GUY. Not too many male stitchers out there, but when you come across one, it's pretty special. :) Check out this pillow he made, drew up the design himself and embroidered:

and his detailed blog post about how he did it: http://www.elephanteater.com/2741

Ryan Claytor is not only pretty handy with a needle and floss, he also draws comics, something else that is dear to my heart, having worked with my husband in the comic book industry for the last 12+ years. :) Check out his work at www.elephanteater.com!
