I’ve been squirreling away doing a lot of secret projects at the moment, however following on from my feature in Mr X Stitch’s Guide to Cross Stitch Book I was contacted about a new type of cross stitch magazine, XStitch, which includes contemporary and unique cross stitch patterns. I knew I had to put an idea into the ring, and so I got to work.
 
I knew I wanted it to scream out my usual style, however, I wanted it to be roughly A4 sized, so it fits on the pages better. I threw some initial ideas down, all of which seemed a little un-Libidan like. However, when looking through my back catalogue of stitches I came across some of my blueprint cross stitches, such as the ZF-1 blueprint cross stitch. An idea started forming in my head and I realized the shape of my lightsaber blueprint cross stitch was a perfect fit.
 
I guess its time to look at the elephant in the room now. I love space. I had just finished reading The Martian for my second time when I looked at this project and my mind instantly went to space, and a very specific blueprint; the original Saturn V blueprints. There was actually a whole raft, all made public a few years ago, however, their detail always amazed me.
