A few Apple fans have turned their love for the company, mixed with moments of frustration, into a (distracting?) hobby with cross-stitch projects.
One crafty fellow, who goes by the name Benjibot, started when his 4G iPod conked out. He needled out his pain by creating the following “dead iPod” cross stitch.
He has a few other clever Mac-related projects for sale in frames on Etsy that highlight some of the more ominous icons, including the bomb.
and the “alert” icon.
Flickr user misocrazy has stitched this original design as an “expression of frustration over setting up convoluted iPod/ITunes/wireless stuff.”
Maybe a stitch in time eases frustration….
