New year, new projects

Has it really been so long since I posted? I guess I got distracted…again! No matter, here I am back once more and with some stitchings too!

IMG_20150113_180015Here we have a Golden Axe dragon statue, Aarbon from Shadow of the Beast (the purple dude), a lovely fairy from Link to the Past, Shiva from Final Fantasy VI and a grumpy-looking Boo. They’re all on plastic and I haven’t cut them out yet, because I have been busy with my WIPs.

I know it’s not a new project, but I’ve also been working on my Arena stitching:

And finally, KingCon 2015 was announced! I really want to get a table again but the price has gone up dramatically. I think it’ll probably be worth it though. Watch this space!





IHSW April :)

This was the first time I’d participated in the International Hermit and Stitch weekend, which is organised by the lovely Joyce of Random Ramblings. Basically, for one weekend a month, participants can stitch as much (or as little!) as they like! Then they blog about it the following Monday – hence this post!
I used the IHSW as motivation to finish a couple of things I had lying around, do some work on my gift for the current Sprite Stitch swap and I also dug out an old WIP to work on, too. Here’s what I’ve been doing!

Tyris Flare from Golden Axe, on 14ct plastic canvas. She’s now taped to my wall next to Axel, until I get around to doing that thing I was gonna do to them! πŸ˜€

A bookmark, inspired by the beautiful indie game Journey. The character you play as in that has a wondeful scarf, that grows as you pick up symbols. It’s also an indicator of a sort of energy (used for jumping/flying/etc I believe). As the energy is used, the scarf loses its patterns – and I’ve tried to show that in my stitching! Took ages to get the pattern just right, had to draw it out in PCStitch by hand. (Getting better at that, though!)
Stitched on a 14ct burgundy Aida band.

This is the WIP I dug out of my basket. I started this last year (at the same time I was working on the Shiva square) and never got around to doing anymore to it. It’s the Dissidia 012 portrait of FFXI’s Prishe. I like the artwork from Dissidia and wanted to try one of the character portraits. I think I’m going to leave this where I can see it and do some more work on it later.

I also did a lot to my swap gift, but as usual I can’t show that until my partner receives it. It’s going to be great! I hope. πŸ˜€

Anyway, I really enjoyed the IHSW, and will definitely be participating in the next one! πŸ˜€
