Wow, it has been a while, hasn’t it? My poor blog has been neglected due to Life and its many distractions. One of those being stitching, naturally. Stitching really helps me when things are tough (and things have been really tough lately.)
So, I have a bunch of new things to share! (Some of these are already up on my Facebook page, so apologies if you’ve already seen some!)
First, my current project – Sword Kirby!
I’ve been working on this piece on and off over the past couple of weeks, although I’ve taken breaks to work on other things (including the current Sprite Stitch stitch-a-long, more on that another time!) It’s a lot larger than it appears, since every “pixel” is a block of four stitches. I’m *this* close to it being done, though!
Next, four projects that were completed a while ago.
Here we have a Link to the Past stitch (it’s a cut-down version of an after-boss scene); a Samus suit diagram from Super Metroid; a fiery Rapidash sprite and a cute Purrloin.
Finally, a cute Mario Kart image, done as a favour for a friend.
I actually have about four other pieces in progress at the minute but will post about them when I’m done with Kirby. Hopefully Life won’t interrupt me again!

So, a while back I said I’d post pics of the stuff I made for my secret swap partner as soon as they revealed it…unfortunately, due to circumstances unknown she hasn’t been able to. I’m assuming real life, it nearly always is – my best mate says real life exists to get in the way of fun and he’s probably right 😀
Anyways, I waited a couple of months and I posted up pics on Sprite Stitch, now I shall do the same here! (Meant to earlier, but see the real life statement above ^^)
What you see here is:
– Cross stitch of the intro girl and Steiner the dragon from Beyond The Beyond
– Kirby plush cushion
– A starstorm (kinda like a snowstorm, but with stars!) with Rudy and Cecilia from Wild Arms
– Crochet bag with a Red Ribbon from Golden Sun (would have been better but I kinda ran out of time, I blame real life yet again!)
And that’s what I made. I’m pretty happy with it and I can only hope that nyami (my swap partner) is too 🙂
Ok, you may have noticed that the post title says part two a. This is because a couple of people didn’t receive their swap gifts – so some of us volunteered to make them new ones. I have made and sent one item each for Bamiyan and Turqoizyoshi, hopefully they will be arriving soon. As before, don’t wanna spoil the surprise by posting here (just incase they peek) but will post as soon as they have revealed em on Sprite Stitch.
And just before I go, I’ve gone and got myself a deviantART thing. It’s at http://blackmageheart.deviantart.com/ . Please check it out if you have time!
Hey all! Hope you all had a nice Christmas etc 🙂 Sorry for lack of posts recently, I’ve been hard at work sewing and making things. The two pictures you see here are gifts I made for my brother and sister.
The first is a coaster featuring a battle sprite of Mikhal from Dragon Force. I got the sprite from Pixel Warehouse (thank you DarkWolf!)
The second is AbyssWolf’s sprite of Kirby from Super Smash Bros Brawl in a flexihoop.
I didn’t like the colours the stitching programs wanted to use, so I decided to eyeball the colours myself (I used to do this all the time before KGChart lol). I’m really happy with how they turned out. Both projects were stitched with DMC floss on 22ct evenweave.
I had planned to make more stuff but as usual Christmas sorta sneaked up on me 🙂
