(thats a dime for scale)

i think i probably should have bit off a smaller project for my first one...oh man that sea of orange was so fun...

i created the pattern from game screenshots...I made them with the intention of making one for each character, but that took a long time to do the first, so we'll see.

if anyone wants one of the patterns (i have every character) feel free to pm me...

UPDATE: All patterns posted on my new blog...

thanks for all of the kind words...x stitch doesnt seem to me like its hard to make look good...you just make x after x after x after x after x...

the freeform needlework that people do is what really impresses me personally...

Those are incredible!!  Cross stitch takes me a million years to finish.  It gets pretty monotonous after awhile but... my husband does love punchout... hmmm...

Currently taking a hiatus from swapping.  Sad

I've always wondered what disease cured ham had.

I cannot believe you did all the stitching for the back ground color...I would have cheated and put it on some fabric that color, lol.  But you did a great job!

I love doing cross stitch from old vids too.  I have such plans...
Your dedication is amazing...that 'sea of orange' would have daunted me, but it is soooo worth it! 

I'll probably ask you for a pattern after I talk to my bf...

This rocks!
