This enterprising crafter
Update: Margaret sez, "That DS case is needlepoint, not cross stitch! It's not your fault, the creator referred to it wrong as well. Cross stitch looks like little x's. Needlepoint purists would even call this plastic canvas rather than needlepoint."
I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.
