September 2011 TUSAL

Another TUSAL already and another month of barely posting. Everything I'm working on I can't show yet. I have two more Pikachus to finish on my Pikachu Pile but I want to make sure I finish my swap items first. I also am taking on a side project, stitching a pixel artist's work for a book. While I finally picked up the needle again, I can't show anything yet. I'll iron some bead sprites and spread some Okamiden love soon. ♥
TUSAL jar contents: Hogwarts Crest, Psylocke, Dark Toon Link, Yoshi's Island Biscornu, Robo + Atropos, Baby Mario Bib, Jill and Vincent Valentine, Oracle of Seasons Link, Donkey Kong, Pan's Shadow, Vegeta, Cubone and Marowak, Nothing is True, Vulpix and Ninetales, Itsuki & Butterflies, Pikachu Pile, [Sprite Stitch Swap]
TUSAL backdrop: The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

P.S. Another month and a half until Skyward Sword! Of course it comes out only five days after Assassin's Creed: Revelations. *le sigh* I may have to betray Zelda for AC. =P

Six Little Pikachus

Here is my progress over the weekend for the IHSW. I managed to finish three more Pikachus. ♥
This stitches up really fast. I do the outline of one, add the details, then fill in the yellow. It is a nice change from my usual pieces.

A New Start: Pikachu Pile

I'm still alive! Here is the new start I mentioned last post: Pikachu Pile. I'll be working on this for Joysze's International Hermit and Stitch Weekend. I'm stitching on 18 count aida for a change. I've signed up for another Sprite Stitch mini swap. It's exactly 50% completed but I can't post anything until it is received. I think I've found my stitching mojo again, finally.

If anyone knows who the original pixel artist is, please let me know in the comments. I've seen it stitched and beaded a few times but I've never seen it credited.
