By page the end of page 1 I was itching for Nolte, on page 3 I was rewarded with technicolour spinning Noltegeddon in stich.

Awesome, if they are real. Something about the Jack White one looks like a plugin. If they are genuine then they should be photographed more naturally, they'd be more amazing then.

Now if only someone would start carving scrimshaw portraits of serial killers, I could finally decorate my summer cottage.

This would be infinitely cooler if, instead of selling the originals, she provided a pattern for the DIY set. Infinitely.

You could probably do it yourself using knitPro. A few minutes in Photoshop tweaking the number of colors in the picture gave me something that might even be stitchable. (I'm an embroiderer myself, so I couldn't say whether my test file would work for needlepoint.)

They aren’t needlepoint (or necessarily criminals), but let’s not also not forget the classic celebrities made out of seeds.
