Mind Your Own Business 簡介


 


"Mind your own Business" is a series of cross stitch shop fronts, designed to fit together in a 'mix and match' manner. The shops can be sewn side by side as a complete scene, approx 55" x 9". Alternatively, each shop can be sewn on it's own or in a small group, depending on the individual stitcher's needs. Each picture comes with a set of alphabets for personalising the shop fronts to suit. Any family names can be added as required. "Mind your own Business" was originally painted as a family tree, and would make a lovely record for anyone's family.



原本想參加,只是因為沒參加到拼布蓋房子的相約,想說參加十字繡的蓋一條街也不錯。但是在看完原始說明之後,更加深了我想繡的動力,原來這一家家商店是可以當Family Tree來繡上名字呀!


其實一開始看到這組十字繡圖的名字,就覺得很有趣,“Mind Your Own Business!” 原本是叫人家管自己的事就好了,別管別人了!簡單來說就是叫對方「少管閒事」啦!但是,這組圖正是要繡者自己去拼接各個店舖,所以用了這麼一個幽默的雙關語,創意十足!
