Dork Stitch's Seventh Annual Heal Slime Day, With My Blog's House Banner

Hello! I have had this blog for over six years, which is cool, even though I am not doing well at keeping up with it this year. I've still been making patterns, but just haven't posted them, which somehow seems worse than not doing anything at all. I've been pretty excited for today's post, though, because it's always fun to try to make a new pattern for Heal Slime day!

In the fall, I'm going to be taking a graduate level history class on Game of Thrones, so I've been trying to read and watch the entire series over the summer. Because of that, this year, it made sense to take out a pencil and graph paper and try to draw Dork Stitch's house banner- a Heal Slime floating against a field of lilac. It may not be practical in battle, but it is cute and cheerful, which is what actually matters.

I've been stitching this on plastic canvas, and so far it's going pretty well, so I can say with certainty that it's quick and easy to stitch. I'm considering somehow putting it on a bunch of my school supplies for next year and being like, "It's my house banner, of course it's on all of my notebooks," so I may even be able to fairly judge what it is like to stitch this multiple times. It's simple, with no half stitches and only a few colors, and it's not very big, either, so if any of you have even the remotest interest in stitching it, I hope you enjoy it!

For today, this is it, but I hope to do better with actually posting here in the near future! Like I said, I have a lot of stuff to post, particularly where brightly colored anime characters are concerned, and I have some projects of my own to show off, too, including a charming Walking Dead sampler that I designed, one that would look right at home in any kitchen. Until my next post, good luck with all of your craft projects and all of your other stuff, too!

  1. Happy Heal Slime day! Nice banner. Have a great 4th! It would totally be a class I would sign up for, but I wonder what it says about the world that there's a graduate level class based on Game of Thrones.

  2. Well, the basis of the class is to learn how to use real historical methodology to critically examine fictional histories, so Game of Thrones is the example text, I think. It should be fun, though- the early draft of the syllabus was full of headings like, "You know nothing Jon Snow- so examine these additional texts" and references to students as loyal bannermen. I actually signed up for the class before reading or watching, because it seemed like it would be fun.

  3. That does sound like an interesting take on the class. You now need house words unless the "I do what I want" is your house words which is awesome haha. I think a heal slime would be infinitely practical in battle. :D
