Great stitching of my Vault Boy pattern made by Pixel, Ponto e Cruz (Instagram @pixelpontoecruz).
Amazing!

One finish, one disappointment, and one wedding coming up

Fallout vault dwellers finished project

Today is the day when I can finally tell you, that I did it! The Fallout wedding project is finished, framed and ready to go to it’s new owners. And right now I have some very mixed feelings about it.

But first things first, here’s a photo:
Fallout vault dwellers finished project

As you probably remember, I stitched this for my half-sister, who’s wedding is coming up this Saturday. It is a custom project, I made the pattern, chose the canvas, stitched it and was oh-so-very proud of myself. But then I had to get it framed, and as it is a present, moreover – a wedding present – I decided that I would not do it myself and would rather pay professionals to do it properly.

I got my stitching back yesterday, and was even more happy right until I unpacked it. The first photo was tweaked a bit, and here is the original. Can you see the problem here?

WIP: Just one line of text left

Fallout Vault boy and girl - a wedding present

At this point I feel almost like a marathon runner. I never actually ran a marathon, but I imagine that at the end all athletes feel like “Come on, myself, hang on just a little bit longer…” That’s exactly my point in this Fallout project 🙂 As for now it looks like this:

As you can see, the boy and girl are fully stitched, as is the date and the names of bride (my half-sister, in case anybody forgot) and the groom. There is only one thing left to stitch, and that is the line “Love never changes” underneath the couple.

Projects in progress and a wonderful finish by Alyssa

I am a slow stitcher, and to tell you the truth, I haven’t stitched most of the patterns I designed. That’s why it is always a pleasure to see how these virtual patterns become real projects in skilled hands. Today I want to share a picture of my Fish Pond pattern, stitched by Alyssa from Brownie’s Chair.

As for my own stitching, I had to stop working on Cats in the Kitchen (again!). It dawned at me that I should make something for my half-sister Katie’s wedding, so I made a pattern, bought all the supplies and have been stitching like crazy to make it on time.

It started out with a grid…

Guess who’s nerdy side got all excited when Bethesda announced that the new Fallout 4 will be coming out shortly? 🙂 Finally! So while I was singing about being as corny as Kansas in August, this guy in blue vault suit showed up and asked to adapt his image into a cross stitch pattern. With all due respect, I present —->
