I made this:

for my dad for his birthday.  It's the logo from the old Commodore 64 computer, which my dad absolutely loved back in the day.  We didn't get an IBM compatible PC until the early '90's, and until then dad hung this big sign above the C64 that said "Not IBM compatible." My dad's a geek, but then so am I so I guess it works out well. Wink

Anyway, I just used a logo I found searching google and did 1 pixel = 1 stitch.  It took me far longer than it should have to cross-stitch, because I kept starting over after deciding half-way through that the colors weren't quite right.  At least it taught me a valuable lesson in double checking colors BEFORE you start!

That is awesome! My grandparents had one and I always used to play "bouncing babies" where the babies would get thrown out of the hospital window and you had to move the trampoline so that they would bounce off of it or they would hit the ground. Ahh the good old days of pixel games.

OMG! I had a C-64 back in the day. My folks got it for me when I was 8. I loved it. This project came out great and such a clever pattern idea!  Cheesy
