E3 looked epic this year to me. A new assassins creed would do that on its own though. However the stand out winner was No Man’s Sky. My original idea was to do a landscape with the fun colours of the game, but during my searches I found this awesome logo ensemble was too good to pass up on.

After visiting the Pompidou Centre in Paris, I had an idea for an archaeological blueprint. Also resting in my mind was my recent sabre handle. Within a week I had researched, designed and stitched this piece. I also intend to extend this idea to larger scale projects.

Following a few cross stitched iPhone covers last year, I found a higher count version. I found a whole load of awesome stuff online that other people had done, but I couldn’t come up with anything myself.
Then, as random luck would have it, my friend BlackMageHeart mentioned dragons. And 3 days later, it was stitched!

I’ve seen a few stitches and art work similar to this in the past, and wanted to do my own. As a result I found a rather boring pattern online and decided to hide pokemon in there.

Mr X Stitch Exhibition in Bedford

Lord Libidan's 3D Cross Stitch at the Mr X Stitch Exhibition in Bedford (source: mrxstitch.com)

Over the last few weeks I had been approached by Mr X Stitch to be featured in his first exhibition, in Bedford, UK. He was curating a contemporary needlework show at a pop up shop on the Bedford High Street.

The colourful exhibition in the BedPop shop featured sewn works from Bedford, and around the globe, and had pieces which range from the whimsical to thought-provoking but all display extraordinary skill with a needle and thread… Jamie (Mr X Stitch) has been working for two months gathering the pieces, some he sourced via his stitching website (www.mrxstitch.com), others have been submitted by the Bedford branch of the Embroiderer’s Guild.”

Title: Runed Lexicon Cube
Date Completed: March 2014
Design: Lord Libidan
Count: 14
Canvas: Plastic
Colours: 4
Video Game: Skyrim

Having loved Skyrim, I really wanted to do it justice with a large scale stitch. Whilst I had done a phone cover, it wasn’t as epic as I wanted.
When researching threads I came across Kreinik’s holographic threads. It didn’t take me long to liken the shimmering threads to mystic etching, and so the ruined Lexicon cube popped right into my head.
Wanting to make it a little more interesting, the corner pieces are raised, and so is the middle ring on each side. The holds the centre circle, which can spin.

Final Fantasy is one of my all time favourite game series, but I’ve never stitched anything from it. I always felt that its been over done in cross stitch.
I somehow lost my old bookmark that was based upon a final fantasy hand, and thought I’d come up with something myself!

Another book! I was contacted by my good friend Johloh and he asked me to help out with a new book project he had. Needless to say, I jumped at the chance, and made this pattern.

This was made for a Disney Classic Cross Stitch Kit, which you can buy here:

The view of Rapture from the eyes of a mark 1 Big Daddy.
I’ve wanted to do a Bioshock stitch for a long time, and I was really interested in an online challenge using silhouettes.
The result is this, something that has been zooming around my brain for a few years.
