Friend and fellow Fanboy Comics (becoming Fanbase Press on May 2!) contributor, Claire Thorne, is a woman of many talents. Not only is she a reviewer, mother, and supportive wife of an artist, she’s a geeky entrepreneur! An Unexpected Hobby is Claire’s selection of geek theme cross-stitch kits and digital patterns that caters to people at all levels of skill.
The Etsy store features kits and patterns for popular geek properties such as Saga, Sherlock, Firefly, Doctor Who, and Star Wars, but Claire’s main page shows her development of even more wide spread works. There’s an adorable Ms. Marvel cross-stitch on her blog roll that will be coming to the store soon.
If you enjoy cross-stitch but have wanted more than cute animal patterns or inspirational quotes, Claire’s store may have just what you’re looking for. Lying Cat is a great counterpoint to that adorable kitten with a butterfly that’s hanging over the sofa, right?
