Microbe Cross-Stitch: Handle Weave Care

by Lambert Varias

Artist Alicia Watkins zooms in on microorganisms and viruses not with a microscope but with needle and thread. Her Etsy shop is filled with handmade cross-stitches of these tiny beings, from our buddies the red blood cell and the neuron to nasty folk like the anthrax bacterium and the ebola viruses.

Each cross-stitch is made with white or ivory Aida cloth and mounted on a 3″ wood hoop frame.
