Aaaaand Willoughby

Just look at that haughty, handsome stare!

His "real" name is Thomas, and he is part of the John Clayton "Elegance" Colllection.  These projects are super fast and fun to stitch.
He does use some unusual stitches around the eyes, nose and mouth, but the instructions are pretty easy to follow, and the outcome speaks for itself.

When I look at this, I can't help sigh and utter "Willoughby!  Oh Willoughby, must you be such an utter shit" in a wistful, fake English accent.

But then I remember that Marianne married the dashing Col. Brandon (Alan Rickman - hello!!!) and it softens the blow somewhat.

Now if I could only find a Col. Brandon cross-stitch, my collection would be complete!


  1. Wow! He is nice to look at! Great stitching!

    1. He was so pretty, I literally couldn't resist him.
      He was super fast, too. I literally stitched him in about 2 weeks.

  2. Это русский актёр Олег Видов в роли Томплинсона из фильма "Ватерлоо" 1970г.
