1  Dragon Age Origins- Big Dang Cross Stitch in Needlework: Completed Projects by amigurl55 on: January 14, 2015 05:42:19 PM
I'm obsessed with Dragon Age.  Origins is the first game in the series and if you haven't played it, you should.  I'd venture as far as to say it's my favorite video game of all time.  So when I got PC Stitch I wanted to make a DA cross stitch design.  I chose the image on the game cover.  I started this in June 2014 and had to take about 3 months off when I was sewing for a craft fair.  Finished design size is about 12" by 12" give or take.  The colors are more vibrant in real life, but I couldn't get my camera to pick up on it even though I tried different variations of lighting.  So keep in mind that the reds are more red, but they're showing up a little pink in the pictures.

Here's the original picture for reference

I'm so happy that I actually finished something this big and I'm really pleased with how it came out.

2  Evil Dead Hoopla- Another Work by My Crafty BF! in Needlework: Completed Projects by amigurl55 on: January 12, 2015 04:17:16 PM
I got my boyfriend hooked on cross stitching!  I found this pattern for him on Etsy and gave it to him as a birthday gift.  He didn't want to start it until after he was done with his big Disneyland project.  Compared to that, this went very quickly for him.

It's on red aida, but my camera made it look kind of pink.

His stitches are so tidy

I read all the feedback to him since he doesn't have his own Craftster account.  Smiley

Now that I'm finished sewing a billion things for a craft fair and I'm almost done (I hope) with my big project, I can get back into the hoopla along.  I'm excited for the January theme and I've already created my pattern for it in PC Stitch.

Finished my hoopla today!  It's my favorite Roy quote from the British show The IT Crowd.

5  Animal Crossing Leaf Necklace in Needlework: Completed Projects by amigurl55 on: December 31, 2014 06:48:29 PM
I found these neat kits at the craft store that came with little pendants and chains.  I didn't really like any of the designs, so I made my own.  I really like Animal Crossing and I thought a leaf would be cute.

6  My boyfriend's first big project! Disneyland! in Needlework: Completed Projects by amigurl55 on: December 27, 2014 01:00:13 PM
We love Disneyland.  My boyfriend wanted to learn how to cross stitch after he saw me doing it, and he chose this for his first big project.  I think he did a great job! 

Look how neat his stitches are!

And here it is framed

It took him a little over a year, but he didn't work on it every day.  I love having a crafty boyfriend.  Smiley

Wow, Etheren, that looks great even without the back stitch!  I hate doing back stitch so I'll usually go back and do it after I finish stitching a page worth of the pattern so I don't have to do it all at once.

Meanwhile, I can't finish anything.  I started a new project a few months ago.  I'm obsessed with the video game Dragon Age, so I wanted to stitch the cover of the first game.  I'm not doing the print, just the picture.

Here's my progress so far:

I got my package from GreysPrincess today!

Some really pretty vintage dresses!  A pink dress that's perfect for Spectra, a beautiful vintage polka dot dress for Apple, and a cute 50's style outfit modeled by my new Cerise.  She also sent some stickers and candy (which I have eaten already lol).

A closer look at the polka dot dress

And a cute pink skirt as well.

Thanks, GreysPrincess!  I love everything!

10  Monster High Ice Princess and a Bunch of Clothes (pic chubby) in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by amigurl55 on: October 29, 2014 08:32:41 PM
This custom has been mostly done for a while.  She started out with a crocheted skirt and scarf, but I raided my mom's Christmas fabric and found this cool snowflake stuff.  Her crown is a belt that came with an Abbey Bominable doll.

Some Christmas/winter dresses also made from fabric raided from Mom's stash

Trippy warped checkers

Halter dress

Leggings and a halter top because I didn't like the clothes this doll came with

And an uncharacteristic (for MH) sundress

I'm glad I was finally able to finish the Ice Princess.  I had a lot of fun making all of this stuff.
