Rozalin Update IV

Here is a quick update from my Rozalin project. Two pages down, two to go. ♥
I've started to contemplate my next project because Rozalin should be done within a week or two. There are some Xmas presents I need to tackle, and a few things for myself. I have quite a few patterns made already just waiting to be stitched and eventually I will get around to all of them. =]

Sprite Stitch September Swap

My swap project was received so I can post it here. I have to admit I love the art from the Final Fantasy games and VI is no exception. I wanted to do something I haven't seen before so instead of everyone's favourite, Kefka, I chose to do Terra and her Esper form. Also Terra is the first female lead character in an FF game, I believe, so girl power and such. =]
Terra & Esper Terra
Final Fantasy VI
Started: September 3, 2010
Finished: September 9, 2010
Colours: 26
Size: 2024 stitches

Also, I want to show off what I received in the swap. It was made by Dawn (DMLC) and you can visit her blog here: Anime Stitching. I have to say I love Epona and I haven't seen a stitch of her until now. Thank you, Dawn! ♥

Rozalin Update III

My September Swap project is finished...kind of. The main stitching portion was completed last Friday. It's too big for a bookmark or something like that. It is nicely frameable in a 4"x6" or 5"x7" frame but is not perfect rectangle. I suppose this breaks the rules just a little in that I would use an envelope slightly larger than standard size. I want to do some kind of blackwork border on the bottom and work in the title of game somehow but I am not satisfied with it yet. I am aiming to have it mailed by the end of this week and then I can post it here.

On a happier note, all weekend I have been working on my stitch of AbyssWolf's Rozalin which is coming along nicely.

Some Bead Sprites

I finally sent in a bead order so I can make some more bead sprites. I'm also getting Hama beads and PhotoPearls for the first time to increase my pallet of colours. Pokemon seem to use up a lot of certain colours to the point where I can barely make anything new. =P

Here are some thumbnails of a few Pokemon plus my Tetris Attack set which I hope to finish once I get my order:

Rozalin Update & Swap Preview

I'm going to be starting the Sprite Stitch Swap project this weekend so here is a quick update on my Rozalin stitch. I won't get to work on her for a bit.
Deciding what to make for the swap was somewhat difficult. I was hoping I could stitch a game I haven't played before but alas we like the same damn games. =P After hours at The Spriter's Resource, I finally came up with something I wouldn't have made for myself otherwise. It's the main character of a game and hopefully this person likes them. Here are the colours and that's all I can post until the stitch is received. ♥
