Ahhh, nothing like a cross stitch to convey how you *really* feel 😀 There’s a whole site for this on teh interwebs, www.subversivecrossstitch.com, run by a smashing laydee called Julie Jackson. She has a book of patterns, surprisingly called “Subversive Cross Stitch” – this pattern is from that book. I made a few little changes here and there but the spirit of it’s essentially the same. It’s also serving as my msn display pic – I leave it up to individuals to interpret its meaning for themselves 😀 I’m gonna frame it and keep it around my desk area (once I make space for it). If you’re looking for something a bit different and quirky, and completely stuffed to the brim with irony, please do check out the site and the book!
So…that out the way I come to the main event. Yes, the title is correct – I have been working. And yeah, you’ve probably seen more work on a sick note.
But look – it’s the Phantasy Star II piece, no less!! Finally felt like dragging it out and working on it, totally for teh lulz of course. That and I want it finished 😛
Apologies for the bad pics, couldn’t be bothered to go ask my sis to borrow her camera, so used my phone >_<
I’ve done some work on the right lady, mostly on her hair and dress – running out of DMC 3777 now though! – and also some on the lettering. I’ve also been eyeballing some extra colours in preparation for finishing the planets and doing the blues in the background.
I’m feeling really motivated to do more on this one so expect updates soon.
Finally, I must add that the next challenge on Sprite Stitch has begun, it’s an alphabet type thing. I have a couple of ideas but need to start em, will post about those soon (hopefully with pics!).
Til next time!! ^^
