Having an “Oh @#$%, it’s Valentine’s Day tomorrow!” moment? If you happen to love a geek—specifically, of the wibbly-wobbly-timey-wimey variety—you can breathe easy. I’ve got you covered with these Doctor Who-inspired cross-stitch valentines. (And, yes, if you’re quick, you can easily have one stitched in plenty of time for tomorrow’s festivities!)
Ready to get started? Here are three companion-approved projects to get your (multiple) hearts pumping:
As a professional crafter and cross-stitch pattern designer, I was pretty much required to design a “Nevertheless, she persisted.” cross-stitch sampler, right? Right.
This pattern is for all of my fellow creative, crafty, pussyhat-wearing feminists out there who could maybe use a quiet of evening of tea (read: a bottle of wine) and stitching. It’s my humble offering to the Resistance, since the world probably doesn’t need one more variation of the pussyhat pattern right now. (Though, rest assured, I *do* have a pattern of my own.) So, if you need a little break from knitting hats, calling your congresspeople, and otherwise lending a hand in your community, I invite you to spend the night recharging with this beginner-friendly cross-stitch project.
Bonus: If you’re really feeling stressed, there’s nothing quite like stabbing a piece of fabric with a needle a couple hundred times to work out some of that frustration! (I’m kidding. Mostly.)

Looking for the perfect DIY card for that special Time Lord or Time Lady? Stitch up your own Doctor Who-inspired Time Lord cross-stitch valentine with my free downloadable pattern!
Or, if cards aren’t your thing, you can always frame it as a piece of wall art, or even stitch the whole thing on some fabric. Beyond Valentine’s Day, it’d also make a great geeky gift for a birthday, an anniversary, or just because!
