Wow, can’t believe it’s been a month since the last one! Time sure has been moving swiftly these past few weeks.
Well…I was all set for May’s IHSW, had all my stuff lined up…but I’ve been unwell over the weekend with a sudden and mysterious cold! So, I actually did more coughing than stitching…!
But I did get some stitching in and here is the proof. I mean the pictures! 😛
Firstly, I did some work to the Elder Scrolls thing I was working on a while ago (but put it away due to working on other things – not sure if I ever posted pictures of it though).
It’s from the Shivering Isles box and when complete it will say “there is no genius without a touch of madness”. It is a version of an ancient quote from Seneca the Younger, a Roman philosopher (among other things). I really like the quote, and I feel like it kinda suits me! 😀
Anyway, I just completed the “without” (think it was mostly the “out” part!), and next will be the “a” – should be simple enough!
Next, I dug out my old Phantasy Star II title screen thing. It’s the one project of mine that really haunts me, so I did a little work in DMC 823:
There’s quite a lot of this colour dotted all over the picture, so I really need to do this when it’s daytime (and preferably bright!) to get it completed.
Also, since I started this piece so long ago, I can see how my stitching has improved over the years. It’s really interesting to look at!
Last of all, a quick non-game piece I whipped up for a friend’s birthday:
He’s a child of the 70s, and seems to have this thing for orange VW campers. I was googling stuff and came across the pattern at http://hancockshouseofhappy.blogspot.co.uk/ . They have some really nice free patterns that are super quick to stitch!
The VW will be going in either a flexi-hoop or a circular frame (haven’t decided yet!). Hope my friend likes it!
So, apart from a little bit of work on my secret swap gifts, that’s all I really managed to do. Hopefully next month I won’t be so full of cold, so I should be able to more! 😀
