IHSW March- Some Pokemon Stitching, But Not All That Much

Hello! Earlier today, I did another post, featuring four new sprite patterns, and that should be directly under this. In this post, however, I have my final cross stitch WIP photo for International Hermit and Stitch Weekend, run by Joysze of Random Ramblings! As always, I did sort of a poor job of hermitting, since on Saturday, I went out to go shopping and see 21 Jump Street (which was quite funny) with my family. On Friday, however, when I did, for the most part, stay at home, I spent a lot more time staring at the wall and taking advantage of the fact that my copies of Marvel vs. Capcom and Soul Calibur for Dreamcast suddenly worked again than I did stitching. With the help of a lot of good old fashioned TV watchin', however, including another episode of Vampire Diaries on Netflix and a faulty DVD of a Lupin the III movie, I did get quite a bit of cross stitching done. I worked on the pattern of Meloetta from Pokemon that I posted on Friday and, during the weekend, almost got her outline done! I think that if I'd managed to finish watching Green Lantern tonight and keep stitching through it, I could have gotten done, finishing up her back and some of her hair, but it's nothing I can't finish up tomorrow night. I got her eyes and jewel filled in, too, with some bright blue DMC satin floss! It was sort of a pain to stitch with, and it doesn't show up in my bad photos, but in the end, I think it'll look cool. Either way, though, here are my three photos from this weekend, showing what I got stitched on Friday, Saturday and Sunday!
I've read a lot of really neat IHSW wrap-up posts already, and am hoping to read quite a bit more of them tomorrow. Until then, I hope that all of you are doing well with whatever crafts or projects you're working on and having a nice end to your weekends!
