Nothing is True. Everything is Permitted.

This past weekend was another International Hermit and Stitch Weekend hosted by Joysze. I can't lie. I really didn't stitch. I played American McGee's Alice on Saturday and started Madness Returns on Sunday. But while I watched some golf with my grandpa for Father's Day, I stitched this up:
I have wanted to stitch the Assassin's Creed logo for awhile. I used some left over linen from Dark Toon Link. I wanted it to look sort of rustic. I should have maybe only used one strand for the backstitch lettering. Oh well. =]

Sometimes its all to the good when you take a stitchy break and do something else that's fun ;) As for your AC creed logo, I've never played the game but have heard tons of good things about it and I think your stitching turned out wonderfully!

The linen does indeed give it a rustic look that's just right (not too rough or dark) and I think your lettering worked out well - it's really clear, and fits the more casual feel of the work. If you had used one strand, it tends to pull the letters tighter, and you get a more formal and subtle look I find. Great finish!

I second this =) I like the rustic look with the strong red ^^

And gosh... I need the Alice games <__<

Rusticity achieved; it looks really cool! I'm about to jump on the AC bandwagon soon (finally got the games), but Alice looks intriguing too... Hope it's as fun as it looks!

Oh cool!!! It DOES look rustic. What will you do with it?
