sub 311x400 Julie Jackson: Mind Your Fingers!

Just in time for the holidays, I received an e-mail from one of my favourite crafters, Julie Jackson showing off her new holiday cross stitch patterns. If it weren’t for Jackson’s sassy book, Subversive Cross Stich, I probably wouldn’t be the proud needlepoint geek that I am today. I have always had a love for textiles, and am a sucker for old school DIY art meets modern grrrl potty mouth…

Citing anger management as a starting place for her hobby, Jackson has reintroduced cross stitching as something that’s actually cool, and i would even dare to say punk rock, to do! And the best part is, Jackson doesn’t hate on the traditional craft – she just places the traditional flowery, dainty imagery around the expletives. This isn’t exactly the needlepoint you would bring to your grandmother’s craft circle, but that’s okay! Jackson offers kits and detailed instruction on how you, too, can make naughty cross stitches for every occasion on her website.

That isn’t all Julie is busy with these days, either. She also spends a lot of her time making, uhm, cat wigs. No, actually! She even has a new book out, aptly entitled, GlamourPuss: The Enchanting World of Kitty Wigs.

To keep up with Jackson’s cross stitch work, you can sign up for her mailing list on her website, Or, if your kitty is looking for a new look, check out, sign up for the mailing, and you can even get an official iPhone application.

    It’s unusual for me to find something on the cyberspace that’s as entertaining and intriguing as what you have got here. Your page is sweet, your graphics are great, and what’s more, you use reference that are relevant to what you’re talking about. You’re certainly one in a million, great job!

    I’m impressed, I must say. Very seldom do I encounter a blog that is both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head. Your thoughts is outstanding; the issue is something that not many people are speaking intelligently about. I’m really happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this.

    PlayStation Phone – No internal memory? That seems kind of weird since I doubt this thing will use UMD. Also, isn’t the PSP2 coming out next year? Will they make a PSP Phone 2? I’m kind of skeptical on this one. well, i can’t edit…but i wanted to add this. i wont be surprised if sony adds some type of adapter add on to the PS3 (something to support the IR blasters, and maybe a small unit within that add on that has more RAM) so it can support google tv. It would make so much sense for sony to be even more of a presence in the living room, other than what the ps3 can already do. If google tv ends up working out all the kinks, and getting better…i wouldn’t be surprised. On top of that being a selling point (a huge one) over the Wii and similar to the Xbox integration w/ att uverse, you’d be able to get the PSP phone and the ps3 to work all buddy buddy together. the possibilities are endless if you ask me. This would be called product synergy sony…listen to me
