Sherlock in Stitches


I really enjoyed watching the BBC Sherlock series last year and was thrilled to see some Sherlock related embroideries pop up on Flickr.  Not nearly enough though, the world needs more Sherlock embroideries! Anyway, as you may know I have a soft spot for stitched lettering and I love this particular quote by Sherlocks friend Dr. Watson, stitched by Flickr user Feltyfathers. If I remember correctly it's from the episode where Sherlock makes his appearance at Buckingham Palace without any trousers on...  There are more Sherlock related embroideries in Feltyfathers' photostream by the way.

And how about some Sherlock & Watson on an especially interesting 'case'? Lovely work by Caroline (Carexcore on Flickr)


I found another version of the duo in pixels in Book Pilgrim's Etsy shop.


And if you like your Sherlock a little less elementary you might be interested in this cross stitch pattern by Bombastitch.


That should keep you occupied for at least a bit until Sherlock returns to our tv screens this Fall!
