Gamer Wednesday: Super Mario Embroidery

Sometimes it isn’t what you stitch but what you DON’T stitch that makes all the difference. The silhouettes of Princess Peach, Luigi, Mario, and Toad with tons of french knots all around seem like they might just jump right off the hoop!

Gamer Wednesday: Slime Quilt

It all starts innocently enough. Rousseline just wanted to make a quilt with a video game character on it. Seems simple. Even her choice of a Slime from Dragon Quest seems so innocent! But soon, that simple Slime grew and grew so that each quilt square pixel was 5″ by 5″ and eventually the whole […]
