More Mario

Just a quick pic update to record my progress on the mario piece. This thankfully concludes the green hill background! Now I just have the final third to go...might actually finish this one? (If I'm not too distracted playing Costume Quest or Beyond Good and Evil).

Yellow Submarine

Just a small project to pass some time. I came across a link to Iotacons by Andy Rash. His work is terribly clever, I fell in love, my mind was blown and it also just so happens they are perfect for stitching. My attempt at The Beatles from The Yellow Submarine is below. Next something Star Wars related? Or Indiana Jones perhaps?

p.s. thank you for recent comments. For some reason my computer is not letting me reply! Grr.

Life got in the way a bit there...

Here's a update of my 'mario through the ages' cross stitch I started way back at the start of the year. I completely neglected it due to the block colour grind but since picking it up again I've got some renewed interest (not saying it will last but progress is progress). Haven't updated in a long time, lost the plot for a bit and then went on a bit of a trip around Australia and made eating out and drinking too much my daily pursuit. I had planned to have the Wind Waker piece all finished a month or so ago but I discovered an error in my stitchy ways and threw the whole thing to the bottom of the pile...I'll get back to it eventually, once my frustration settles!
