Tardis and Creativity

Small Tardis Sample

*Samples are not my own and I take no credit for them.

 

I do needlework.  I cross stitch, embroider, do needlework/canvaswork, have done some blackwork (although sometimes I cheat and just do it backstitching) and have done some hardanger.

I love science fiction and like all good little sci-fi fans, I love Doctor Who.  I want to stitch up a Tardis.  But I realize there are more options than just looking at pictures and drawing one up.

Redwork Sample

I could draw one on a tightly woven fabric and embroider it.  Either just outlining it like red or white work, but in blue or filling it in with satin stitches.

Blackwork Sample

I could put it on a grid and stitch it on something like Hardanger fabric and fill the spaces with blackwork fill patterns.

I could put it on canvas and use different needlework stitches to fill the spaces.

Needlepoint sample

I could make a full color, counted cross stitch pattern, which is usually my default.

Cross Stitch sample

I know which way would be fastest to stitch up.  But maybe I should try out something more creative.  I can’t seem to make up my mind.  I would like to do something elaborate but at the same time I don’t want to do something that ends up too time consuming.

  1. You got me here just with the picture of the Tardis, that beautiful blue box full of wonderful mysteries and adventures…and of course the doctor…

    I would suggest you look at the at the various Tardiss’ (or would that be Tardi?) and start there, they have different blue and subtle different constructions. Maybe one of them will give you the “Got it” moment and make you decide which you want.

  2. Always willing to follow the Tardis hoping to get an invitation inside…
