Recently an ICT teatcher friend of mine posted a pic on facebook of some cartoon characters he'd made in Excel. They were awesome. My first thought? "I can embroider those monkeys". Not that they were monkeys. You know what I mean. Anyhoo, on to the pics:

I did this one first and sent it as a card to my pal. First time i've done cross stitch since school!

This one I did not with cross stitch but a diagonal type stitch, which I'm sure there's a real name for. I realised the stitches were so small, they didnt need the cross of the cross stitch. Saved me time and thread, woo hoo!

There was also a super mario one which went very wrong when I picked out all the back ground and the tried to super glue the aida where I'd accidentaly snipped it. I ended up turning them into a badge and car hanging, which I forgot to take pics of. I'm going to start it again though, cos it was looking so darn cool.

Single diagonal stitches are called needlepoint. Love the sprite characters!
