It’s Dangerous to Stitch Alone, Take This!

A few weeks ago, I was contacted by my buddy Kari to see if I’d be interested in making a quilt square for the Pixel Stitch group over on Twitch. (This, despite the fact, that my old computer practically makes it impossible for me to stream on Twitch Creative.) I told her yes — theContinue reading “It’s Dangerous to Stitch Alone, Take This!”

The Holidays Have Consumed You

So let’s sum up the past few months, shall we? Crafting. Lots of it. I’m going to go through and post everything once the craziness of the holidays calms down (hopefully).

So, last week, I ditched Cap and turned my attention to a certain Hyrulian map. I *think* I’m going to try to finish it around the same time I completedContinue reading “WIP Wednesday: Week 854,958”

A Link to the (Gaming) Past

550 hours. That’s how long it took me to finish this enormously huge project (an 18″ square) of cross-stitching the overworld map of the Dark World. (It’s still less time than I spent on Majora’s Mask.) Originally, I bought the chart for my sister and (now) brother-in-law’s wedding. But, it needed to be finished byContinue reading “A Link to the (Gaming) Past”
