I Aim to Misbehave

Wednesday, September 22, 2010

As a never-ending dabbler, I have started... dabbling... in cross-stitching. It's one of the better crafts, I think. It starts out on the computer, where I create the pattern, and ends with me sitting in front of the TV, stitching away. The embroidery hoop is portable and the results are cute. And there are endless possibilities to incorporate my geekery into my patterns.

Speaking of geekery, who doesn't like Firefly? And Serenity, obviously. I don't know anyone who's seen the series and movie that doesn't love it. And by "love" I mean love. With emphasis.

So I made a Serenity cross-stitch. I think it's pretty sexy.

"Y'all got on this boat for different reasons, but y'all come to the same place. So now I'm asking more of you than I have before. Maybe all. Sure as I know anything, I know this - they will try again. Maybe on another world, maybe on this very ground swept clean. A year from now, ten? They'll swing back to the belief that they can make people... better. And I do not hold to that. So no more runnin'. I aim to misbehave."
- Malcolm Reynolds, Serenity

The pattern comes out to be 4"x6" on a standard 14-stitch-per-inch fabric. I used six-strand embroidery floss when I made it. The pattern comes in GIF, PDF, and PCStitch formats.
