41  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / I'd Rather Be Rich (one more 8-bit piece) on: November 29, 2008 09:00:33 PM
Ok, so a little Saturday overtime after the holiday. I knew I didn't have a ton of time to do a bigger project but wanted to keep the streak alive.

I've always like the character Wario and his outlook that winning the game is just a by-product of collecting coins and getting paid  Cheesy  So even though he was never in an 8-bit game I figured he would be a great companion to my Mario and Luigi pieces...plus the phrase was just perfect for his character.

I promise this is my last exploitation of my Mario chart (I promise nothing)!!! As always, thanks for looking

42  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / I'd Rather Be Writing You A Love Song on: November 26, 2008 06:41:05 PM
Ok, this is for the woman who has everything...or at least my heart!

Me and my wife to be originally dated in high school when I was 14-16 and we even ran away together. There was a "kidnaping incident" that resulted in us having to go our separate ways - isn't that what breaks up all teen romances?

We both got married, had families and eventually found each other again. The daughter we have together is the little one in my photo. I wanted to stitch her something that spoke of the 13 years I have been waiting to have her back in my life. When coming up with the idea for this project over 6 months ago I decided it was a great line for a song (Shameless plug alert) a demo of which can be found at www.myspace.com/whateverjamesdoesnotrock

I started and finished it today thinking it would be perfect for my "I'd Rather Be..." project. Turns out she had a bad day so it was perfect for that too! And I finished it with 11 minutes to spare!  Sorry for all the words. Here's the pic:

Ok, my first "companion piece". I thought Mario needs his wing man and I had it! The picture's not that great but I took it with my phone at work. I think there will be an 8-bit Wario one next week if work stays slow. I actually have some projects plan.

Side note: Thanks for all the support with this silly "I'd Rather Be..." project. Its becoming more fun then I thought it would be!!!

44  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / I'd Rather Be Making You Uncomfortable on: November 24, 2008 05:49:01 PM
Ok, work is still pretty slow so here is a new addition for my I'd Rather Be "project". Already started tomorrow's project, and got some really funny stuff planned, but this may be my favorite so far. Cheesy

45  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / I'd Rather Be Playing Mario Bros. on: November 20, 2008 04:56:44 PM
The second project completed at work now that I have no internet. This one was completed yesterday.

46  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / I'd Rather Be Watching The Big Bang Theory on: November 20, 2008 07:45:51 AM
So even though we are insanely slow at work the actions of a few questionable minds have forced my employer to revoke our internet privleges. For some reason they decided to say no books either  Cry

So, after combing through all the new codes of conduct and being 100% sure there is nothing about crafting, I am starting a "series" of very small projects for things I would rather be doing then sitting at work staring at my keyboard for an hour and a half. There won't be anything extravagant as I hope each project will only take a day - I'm sure there is a message in that somewhere!

So first up: a quote from my new favorite TV series, The Big Bang theory. Thanks.

47  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / It Happens (Tetris fun and slight language) on: July 23, 2008 10:59:43 AM
We all know it. We all play it. We all love it...and those of us who horde all our pieces to one side of the screen waiting for a straight piece to "lay down the tetris law" have sadly done this  Sad

I tried some different back stitching to outline the individual pieces but I am horrible at back stitching. I know thats like saying I am horrible at breathing oxygen but I never seem to get it to look as well done as so many pieces I have seen.

Sorry its a little blurry. I took it with my phone since I finished it at work. Nothing like working in a call center that doesnt get calls and being overpaid to stitch all day  Cheesy
48  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Love, Your Geek on: July 02, 2008 07:14:25 AM
I did this for my girlfriend (who by the by has asked me to teach her to cross stitch!!!). She kind of gets the color codes since they are color coded. I tried to explain the "all your base" reference but that went about like this   Roll Eyes

She doesn't understand what it says but she does understand what it means which is good enough for both of us!

49  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Bender (Futurama's Back)!!! on: February 16, 2008 05:58:25 AM
So this one took a little while. I started it just before the return of my favorite animated show, Futurama! The second pic with the phone and quarter are just for scale. I'm looking forward to a couple small projects and then I am doing a portrait of Emporer Fry the Solid from the My Three Suns episode  Cheesy  Thanks for checking it out!

50  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Cleaning Up After Myself (x-stitch) on: February 09, 2008 06:43:27 AM
So I am two slow-days-at-work from finishing my first big cross-stitch project. I've been working on it since October and this includes indoors, outdoors, rooms without doors(?), packing it away for a move and leaving it out while moving everything around it...and I did it on white cloth, of course.

What tips, advice, do's and DO NOTS can anyone help me with when it comes to cleaning this up?

Is there a place you can take it, like certain craft stores (if so I am in the Rancho Cordova/Sacramento, CA area if anyone knows something local).

Thanks for any and all your info!!!
