Fighters Guild Pt.2

Just a quick update with some better pictures of the Fighters Guild stitching πŸ™‚ Enjoy!!


Fighters Guild finished!

Yes! I finally finished the Fighters Guild crest. Took a while, I know, but I’m really pleased with it πŸ™‚

Here is the stitching before washing/stretching/ironing.

And here it is, mounted and ready to hang! (really bad picture, sorry!)

It’s hard to tell from this picture (for which I totally blame energy-saving bulbs – they’re just not right) but the stitching is mounted on dark red crushed velvet, with a dark red and gold twisted cord and matching tassel. All I really need to do is find a decent pole/stick/thing to slot into the top to hang it properly…that weird stick that’s in the picture just isn’t up to the job, lol πŸ™‚

I will update with a better picture as soon as I can, as I really think this picture doesn’t do it any justice whatsoever!! ^^

Post-Christmas Post

Greetings of the season to you all – hope you all enjoyed yourselves πŸ˜‰

I haven’t been stitching for a couple of days, partly because of the Christmas chaos but also because I’ve seen a return of my dermatitis – and it’s feeling particularly vengeful. I did manage to make a couple of small decorations last week.

The top one is a Christmas themed Portal image – the pattern was created by comatosegrl and posted in the Sprite Stitch forums, all credit and many thanks to her πŸ™‚ The second one is a Mario star, with a sparkly backstitch border (go DMC Light Effects!!). Both stitchings were stuck to felt and a ribbon was added, so they could hang on my tree. I would have made more but I just couldn’t find the time – guess there’s always next year πŸ˜€

I’ve also done some more to the Fighters Guild.

I would have liked it finished in time for Christmas, but what with my course and everything else I couldn’t manage it. I will be working on it some more this week so we’ll see how far I get (and it’ll be more of a challenge since I will be wearing cotton gloves while doing it, lol).

Update soon!


Fighters Guild WIP update

I have been working on the Fighters Guild crest a fair bit in recent weeks (in between my coursework and FFXIV). So, here’s how it’s looking right now:

I’m pretty happy with how it’s looking so far, but I’m looking forward to it being finished πŸ˜€

Instead of framing this one, I’ll be making it into a wall hanging. I can’t say too much right now incase my sis reads this – although she sees the WIP pics and she has seen the material I have ready for the hanging, she doesn’t know exactly what I have planned πŸ˜€ Β Of course, once she does, I will post pictures of it here!!

The unreliable poster strikes again (aka catching up pt2)

I realise this isn’t the tomorrow I was on about in my last post, but what can I say? I’m lazy lol. I’ve not really been doing much last few days except for sitting in front of the tv too much… But, as I promised, here’s some pics of my recent WIP’s. First up – the Fighters’ Guild crest from Oblivion.

My sister requested this one as she’s kinda into Oblivion right now. It’s been sidelined a fair bit what with all the swaps etc I’ve been doing, but I’m back into it and it’s not too big so it should be finished fairly soon.

Next – Alisia Dragoon.

I started this one when my old PC died and I was left for a while with only printed out patterns. Alisia Dragoon was the first console game me and my bro bought with our own money – sadly the cartridge stopped working about a year later, but I still have it for sentimental value πŸ˜€ I think that’s partly why I chose to do this one and not one of my other printed patterns (which I must get around to doing, lol).

I’ve also been crocheting and doing blackwork (as birthday presents for my family) and I shall be bribing asking my sis to go on a mission to get pics at the weekend πŸ™‚
