So this is my first time doing cross stitch and I think I am very ambitious. I made a pattern from a screen shot. To make it look as close to the real pic as possible I looked up sprites of Mario and scenery and messed around until it looked right. The charts are 9 pages (though I printed it pretty large to I cans see it. I then used a DMC color card to choose the colors for it. I have been working on the floor blocks for about four days now. I will post more pics as I get more done.
