offer: Cross-stitched Star Trek Characters (2 of 2)

User name: wook77
Email: thewookemail[at]
Examples of my work: reboot!kirk/mccoy, picard/riker, tos!kirk/spock
What I'm offering:Cross stitched Star Trek Characters. The artwork/patterns are here for Star Trek XI, here for TOS, here for TNG, here for more TOS/XI. The artist of the original patterns is black lupin on deviantart who has kindly given me permission to use her patterns for charity auctions.

Additional Info: Two Characters stitched on various fabrics if you ship 'em and the pattern is available. Final layout will be similar to this stitched by leighblack but the heart and other bits will vary from that layout. I will ship to your house by April 30th. Free shipping to the US. The more interest, the more time it will take me to ship these suckers.

If you want it framed, please add five bucks to your donation and mention it in your bid.

Starting bid: $5.00 ($7 new zealand)
Fandoms: Star Trek XI, Star Trek TOS, Star Trek TNG

convert your bid from USD to NZD using this
so that you are not donating less than you pledged.
