U - A-Z Cross Stitch Style

U is for Unknown and Uriel

We're into the final week - the countdown is on!  6 posts to go.  And so:

Today's post in the A-Z Challenge is brought to you by the letter "U"..  I'm cross stitching two of my alphabet patterns for the challenge - a Pokemon one and a Supernatural one.  Both patterns (plus may others) are available from my Etsy store.  

The Pokemon Alphabet
U is for Unnown.  What sort of pathetic, lazy name is that.  Unnown is one of the few Pokemon in this alphabet not from the original Red and Blue versions of the game, and so I don't have any personal anecdotes about him. 

The Supernatural Alphabet
U is for Uriel, the angel.  There are a 6 angels in this alphabet - they have very cool, old-fashioned, traditional names and as such use different letters of the alphabet - letters where there is no alternative but another angel.  I'm not really a fan of how many of the angels are portrayed in this series. I find some of their storylines a bit on the nose, a bit cynical, a bit "how more derogatory can we be?"  It started off so well... Personally, I think they need to leave the whole angel/heaven storyline behind and move on.

Over at Travel Like A Geek I am working my way through an A-Z of the filming locations used in the Harry Potter series.  U is for Underground Station.

Happy Stitching



  1. I love your designs so much XD I used to have the Pokemon movie with the unown in it but my dog chewed up the tape T_T

  2. Your projects are both looking great Ros.


  3. I SOOO agree! Give up on the angels already (but keep Cass, obviously).

  4. I agree with the heaven/angel/darkness storyline...let's move on already! Love your projects, as always :)
