Modern, funky cross stitch - does such a thing exist?

I fancy doing some cross stitch, have enjoyed it in the past, but I hate most of the patterns. I'm not a William Morris kind of girl so I wondered if there is anyone making funky cross stitch kits? I've had a brief google and found someone making kits of album covers, sounds great but the website looks like it's expired. Any others?

Have you looked in the cross stitch magazines? I'm sure I've seen some really nice one's advertised, looked too difficult for me though.

hadn't thought of that, I guess I assumed they'd all be traditional designs. I'll see what I can find, in the meantime - anyone else?

put a thread on the arts and crafts area... I don't crossstitch.. I can barely knit but there are a few on there that can help you find something.. and a few of the girls on there used to design cross stitch patterns.

Where are you? Last time I was in London, Liberty had some quite modern stuff.

www.sublimestitching.com/

www.subversivecrossstitch.com/

Both US sites but sublime stitching definitely ships internationally and I think the other one does too.

Sounds like fun, good luck!

do you like art deco/art nouveau? I have done a few Clarice Cliff's in my time, I really like them and they work well imo

What about this - is this the sort of thing you mean?

<whistles nonchalantly>
I am full of surprises, me.
I started doing it while waiting to go into court, which is an interminable bore.
and better than eating or taking up smoking, which is what everyone else seemed to do.
course I don't have time now.

thanks for all the suggestions, still don't feel I've found quite what I'm looking for. Maybe I'll look into designing my own shock.
