Remember that Adam I had a WIP of in my last post (which was quite a while ago, I know) ? Well I went and finished it, as well as the two other characters, Axel and Blaze!
They’re not exactly finished, because they need a wash and a press before I figure out what to do with them. I may get one of those multi-photo frames for them, since it would be a shame to split them up!
I also completed this recently:
It’s Seraphim (or sometimes Sraphim) from Final Fantasy VI. I had a lot of difficulty getting the colours to look ok, but it turned out nice enough.
In other news: I signed up for KingCon 2015! So a huge chunk of my makes this year will be going there, and hopefully I will have a lot of wares!
Currently working on: Rapidash – will post progress soon.
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!
Here 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.
This will be Adam from Streets of Rage when it’s done. Right now it’s just the black. 🙂
I know it’s not a new project, but I’ve also been working on my Arena stitching:
It’s really starting to look like something now, instead of just a weird brown blob!
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!

So…not exactly when I said I’d post but close enough, right? Right? 😀
I’ll be honest, my motivation level is still pretty low, but I have been doing stuff and I did do some stitching for the last IHSW like I said. Not much, but it was more than I had been doing. Anyway, have some pictures! 😀
This is the Nei project. Before the IHSW her skin tones weren’t fully done, so during the weekend I finished that and made a start on the hair.
Also during the IHSW I made a start on the Blaze from Streets of Rage, I think she was finished by the next Thursday, so I made Adam too! Here they are:
And with the Axel I made a while back:
I’m pretty happy with how they turned out. They need backs and then a purpose…although I have this image in my head. You ever seen a set of three ducks on a wall? Like that. In case you don’t know what I’m on about, I mean ducks like:
Pic of wall ducks I “borrowed” from amazon.co.uk
Only Streets of Rage characters. Don’t ask me why, I have no idea! 😀
I started an Ice Climbers piece for Ivy, she kept asking for me to make it. She chose some ice blue aida. I’m working on it now and it’s not far from being done so will have a picture of that soon.
I was supposed to start making a fabric advent calendar on 1st – the idea was for me to make a number pocket every day. Thought it might help with the motivation! So far…zero pockets. But it’s only the 4th so maybe I can catch up. When I’ve done all the numbers I’ll attach them to a piece of fabric and put it away to use next year (will put treats in the pockets!)
I have been doing other stuff, although right now I can’t think what they might be. Morph balls, possibly…maybe a Black Mage too? When I find out I’ll do another post with pics and stuff. 🙂
Really need to bash my sis around the head for some good pictures of my cosplay too.
Anyway, hope everyone is well and keeping busy! 😀

OK, a lot later. I didn’t mean to forget about posting, I’ve just been up to my neck in all kinds of projects! Very, very busy, as ever.
This post has quite a few images! 😀
This was a commission for a lovely, lovely guy on deviantART called Greg aka “TheChairSlayer”. He does the perler beads but found he couldn’t match the colours for this piece and requested it as a stitching instead! It is a Tarot card from Ogre Battle on the SNES, a long time favourite of his.
It is stitched on 16 ct hand dyed aida in “Barely Lime” (although it seems impossible to capture it in ANY photo) and was 3346 stitches in 14 colours. A very fun piece to work on!
Ahh, this. The elusive Ecco II square for the Sprite Stitch 2012 quilt. I took WIPs of this and kept forgetting to upload them to places…when I finally decided to get around to it the piece was finished!
This piece gave me some real trouble, as the stitching programs couldn’t seem to accept that there were more blues in the sea than they claimed. So I had to hand-draw quite a lot of the pattern! But I think it turned out quite nice.
9216 stitches in 22 colours on 16ct aida.
This is Axel Stone, my favourite character from Streets of Rage. He’s currently taped to my wall above my desk to remind me that he needs to be finished! (Of course, I can’t take the hint – he’s been there since February ^^;)
He’s on 14ct plastic canvas, and needs cutting out and backing…because I have a plan for this dude. When I get around to doing that, I’ll post him here 😀
This is a very small old-school style sprite of Prishe from FFXI. Nick showed me the sprite and told me to stitch it. He was joking, but I did it anyway, because I thought it was cute!
I don’t know who made the sprite, so I can’t give the appropriate credit, but if you are out there – thanks and good job! 😀
277 stitches in 22 colours on 16ct aida.
A lovely sprite of Young Ryu and Nina from Breath of Fire III. I love that game and it’s probably my favourite in the BoF series. I was looking for something brightly coloured and quick to do (as a break from Ecco!) so decided on this.
1060 stitches in 51 colours on 14ct pale lemon (I know, you can’t tell, but trust me it is!) aida.
Finally, here is a bunch of stuff that I gave to my sister Dolly for her birthday on March 10th. There is:
- Lilac crocheted headband
- Skyrim Dark Brotherhood birthday card
- Can of “Old Fashioned Moustache Elixir”
- Cross stitched Silent Hill 2 “9 save points” coaster
- Cross stitched Faerie from Breath of Fire III
- Cross stitched badge of my 8 bit version of “Azura’s Star” from Skyrim
I also gave her a bottled Nirnroot that I bought from a wonderful Etsy shop, PortalandPortkey. Please check out her items!
Well, I must get back to the stitching – currently working on my gifts for the Sprite Stitch “big” swap. I won’t be able to post anything about that until my partner receives the stuff. But I have a few other things I’m working on as well that I will be able to share. And it won’t be so long until the next post! 😀
