Firefly/Serenity Cross-Stitch

Serenity Cross Stitch

Generally speaking, I’m not big into arts and crafts.  Writing is my creative outlet, and my hands shake too much for most kinds of artwork.  However, cross-stitch is something I can do, and it’s something relaxing and fun that can be done while watching a movie or TV show in the evenings.  However, I often get bored with most cross-stitch designs, because there’s not a lot out there that interests me.  So I set out to see if I could find one based on the TV show Firefly.  (I previously did one based on the Dick Tracy poster, which I might post sometime in the future.)

The character designs all came from this site (men here and women here), which I then copied into a cross-stitch software package.  I then added the logo, the quote, and got everything arranged the way I wanted.  You should have heard my internal monologue about which characters should be next to each other.

Anyway, I finished it recently and decided instead of hanging it in my house, I could donate it to our local Can’t Stop the Serenity showing.  For those who don’t know, CSTS is a worldwide, annual charity screening of Serenity (usually paired with something else by Joss Whedon, like Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog).  The proceeds go to Equality Now, a group dedicated to ending violence and discrimination against women and girls around the world.  Often the screenings will also generate money for local groups with a similar theme.

So if you’re in Tucson this Saturday and come to CSTS at the historic Fox Theatre, you might be able to win my cross-stitch!

  1. I watched this show over the course of a few hot summer nights on a desert island…. really. My firends and I were staying on Chincoteague Island VA, and this (and a beer or two) was the night’s entertainment. I’d never heard of it (though we are all SF/fantasy fans) and fell in love with this unique, quirky space western. Jayne, of course, joins all those other Heroes With Earflap Hats: Sherlock, Bofur, and Lance Mackey (Iditarod champ). Can’t take the sky form meeeeeeeeeeeeeee…….

    • I would not feel comfortable selling the pattern, since I took the character designs from the site I linked to in the article. However, I’ll take a look on my computer and see if I still have the pattern, and I’ll email it to you if you’d like. You can go to the “Feedback” section of the site to send me a private message if you’re interested, and if I can find the pattern I’ll send it to you. I’d only ask that you not use it for profit.
