I apologize for my lack of updating. It's much quicker to just upload a picture then to write, what I hope, is a fun summary of what I've been stitching. I don't think I'll have another update until before Otakon, which is July 27th to July 29th. I've been busy with a new job as well, so I've been stitching less. Here's what I've managed to get done in 3 months!
This was an awesome special order for Studio Nasu, who I met at magfest. The ninja is from the Gameboy version of Final Fantasy.
I worked on this piece for about a month, and it's 8 by 10 inches. It was a special order that was made for a game tester. I hope they liked it!
This is my favorite piece this year! I started working on it in February, and just finished last week. It's the second clock I've made, the first was my Sonic clock. I used every current Eevee-lution, and the first four Pokeballs for the main numbers. The edges were a little rough, so I finished it with some black ribbon. I'll be selling it at Otakon this year, but it'll be hard to part with!
I've been on a bit of a roll lately, so here's everything I've done in the past week. I really can't believe how quick I'm going through these, but that just means I need to think of another big pattern to slow me back down. The first one I made as a gift to my boyfriend. He works as a Database Admin. so I wanted something for his office. The original idea came from Futurama, and it translates from programmer speak into "Home Sweet Home".
The next one I finished in a weekend. It's the N7 logo from Mass Effect. I was using up a scrap of fabric I had and needed something small so this was perfect.
The last one I finished is very close to my heart, and yes, it's Portal! I guess I just can't help myself, poor companion cube.
I really love Portal. Really, really love Portal. So I'm kind of surprised at myself that this is the first pattern I've stitched up for it. I found this somewhere on the internet and fell in love with the idea. I always felt bad about the poor companion cube and I think this is a good way to express that. I'm waiting with anticipation for Portal 2, but in the mean-time I suppose that this will do!
So I want to go off the beaten path for a little to tell you all some wonderful news! Portal is free! Now I know you're all thinking "What does that have to do with cross stitch?" Well...nothing, but I did make an honorary Portal Cake pattern to celebrate the awesome news. Now go out and download! Free Portal!
