Instant collection of 5 pretty STD microbe cross stitches, completed in 3" natural wood embroidery hoops

---The Story---

I PROMISE YOU that these will be the prettiest STDs you've ever seen.

They're chosen from the STD microbes available in my shop to sit prettily on your walls. Put them up all together or put up a few and switch them out! Freak out dates that you bring home five separate times if you want to. :)

...and if you can get them to come back after the first two or three times, you'll know they're a keeper.

---The Deets---

These are part of a series of microbe and germ cross stitches that feature a variety of brightly-colored microscopic viruses/bacteria/etc each stitched on white Aida cloth and framed in 3" natural wood hoop frames. Find more in the Microbes and Germs section of my shop.

The back of each germ or microbe will be protected by loose felt that clings to the back; the felt will not be glued to the hoop, in order to allow for easier cleaning and re-stretching should that become necessary.

*CUSTOMIZE: This is a standardized group of STDs, but if you're looking for a different set of microbes, check out the links below for listings of choose-your-own sets. :)

The microbes pictured represent many of the microbes currently available. If there's one you'd like to see in stitching that isn't pictured here and isn't in my shop yet, let me know!

*SHIP: This stitch set will be made to order and sent via USPS first class (with delivery confirmation) or international first class mail within three weeks of your order, usually sooner, unless I convo you otherwise or increased lead time is mentioned in my shop announcement (main shop, below the banner) and/or shop policies.

If you need these shipped sooner, contact me and let me know when you'd need them by. Chances are good I'll be able to get them to you in time.

*GIFT WRAP: Let me know if you are giving the these STDs as a gift (lol), and I'll wrap 'em up in plain paper and include a notecard for your "to" and "from" -- or tell me if you'd like me to send it directly to the recipient and what message you'd like to include, and I'll write it out for you before I pop it in the mail. (Nothing mean -- and I will not help you use these to tell someone you gave them an STD!)

Microbes are not my intellectual property, obviously, but the cross stitch designs are copyright Alicia Watkins 2012. Please do not copy or distribute without permission, and please do not pin images without permission. (Convo me!)

If you're interested in the patterns for this or other germs, convo me, and I'll put them at the top of the queue for digitizing!

I am no kind of medical expert, and anything I know about the microbes in this series of stitches or that I appear to know, I learned from the internet. : ) NO PART of my listings or any other ramblings should be construed as ANY KIND of medical advice, because it's not. My only relevant expertise is in cross stitching!
