Do Something Boring cross stitch sampler hand-worked in shades of blue with muted purple flowers and border, on a crisp white background. Sampler can be framed in the mock-Victorian frame as pictured, or in a white wooden frame.

Hanging loop and stand on back of frame. Frame is approx 20 cm x 15 cm.

Do Something Boring is one of Brian Eno's Oblique Strategies, from his 1975 pack of idea cards, used to break a creative block or generate a fresh idea.

This is a special order so please allow time for me to get stitching! Drop me a convo to see how long the queue is at the moment...

If you'd like a different Oblique Strategy cross stitch, let me know! I love making special orders, with the text and colours/motifs of your choice. I can also use my stock of vintage / recycled frames so drop me a convo to discuss options!

Meet the owner of knitforvictory.
