Greetings, people of craftser! On this Christmas day, I have decided to post my work here so to get new opinions mainly but also to meet more like-minded individuals. I've been doing fusible bead sprites for over a year now but have recently switched my attention over to cross stitching to expand my crafting skills.

I'm still very new at this, nowhere near as talented as some of the people I've seen so far but I'm steadily going up in both size and complexity. Here are my few beginner pieces:

They're all done on 14 ct fabric and took from 30 minutes to 6 hours to finish, . I'm really just practicing before taking on bigger projects, the majority of which will probably be gaming related since it's what I've been doing. Any comments would be greatly appreciated.

aaaand while I'm at it, I hope this isn't against forum rules but I'd like to invite anyone that's particularly geeky to check out Pixelgasm, a site dedicated to geek crafts and a home to all lovers of pixelated goodness. We're a good bunch of bead spriters but more variety would be awesome.  Tongue

Those are all really cool- especially the Kirby. :]
Good to know you're spreading out, trying new things! You can never go wrong with a new craft.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
