Hello! It's Sunday night at the end of an International Hermit and Stitch Weekend, as hosted by Joyzse of the blog Random Ramblings, so, since I'm going to be subbing for a math class tomorrow, I thought that I'd do a quick blog post to sum up my stitching for the weekend now! I didn't do any of the hermit stuff at all, seeing as I went and watched two of my siblings at a six hour Scholastic Bowl tournament on Saturday and went to see Haywire today, but I feel like I was pretty productive with my stitching anyway, and on more than one project. Part of that is because I dragged my folder of sprite patterns to the Scholastic Bowl tournament, allowing me to work on my plastic canvas sheet of fighting game characters. I'm not very fast about making them, but I was there for long enough that I finished one I'd started on Friday and got two more completely made. My process in making them was not terribly interesting, so instead of typing two much about the three sprites, here are the photos!
The other half of my stitching for the weekend was my continued work on my giant, non-simplified fighting game sprite, featuring Noel from the BlazBlue games. I really didn't think that I'd get any of her stitched this weekend, but a steady stream of television, including reruns of The Big Bang Theory, the middle hour of Inglorious Basterds (which I've seen enough times to not be bothered by watching the middle hour), an episode of Once Upon a Time, and The Trip, which my family watched on Netflix, allowed me to work on her quite a bit! The page of the pattern that I'm working on is covered in colored pencil scribbles, marking off the pages that I've finished, and I think that the ruffles of her skirt are really starting to look like they fit the overall image. Here is a slightly crooked and poorly lit photo of my project as it currently stands, though, so you can see it for yourself!
