Stab In The Art

I love gaming, and I love Cross stitch, so obviously this was the natural progression.

I made this pattern from sprite image myself, but there are sites you can get patterns from, like which is an awesome site.

Alternatively, you could do what i did. Open a sprite in paint, increase the image size by 500% and use blue to draw a grid onto the image, print, and stitch.

I wanted to turn this into a keyring, so I used Plastic canvas, and after I did the design, backed it with felt, and went around the edge in a matching colour. I had a problem with the corners showing, but all in all it looks ok.







{September 8, 2010}   Nerves, and PokeWalker Lament.

Tomorrow… Duh Duh Duuuhhhhnnnn….

I have a speech to give explaining that the course I have been doing lately has changed my life, and how I’m all happy now. I’m so nervous. Especially the last speech/ Public Speaking that I did was my year 7 Validictory Speech, so this is worrying. But I’m not backing out, I’m too strong for that, and I’d never forgive myself. So I’ll go in, nerves and all. I’ll be fine. I went to the dentist, I can do anything!

Now, about my PokeWalker. For those of you that have one, you would know that you can only get certain Pokemon on it, and the book says that only One PokeWalker can be synced, per game. So you would understand the horror I felt to look down at my belt to discover my Pokewalker, along with beloved Miltank was gone. We looked, and put my name down for the shopping center lost and found, but nothing. I even looked in the local Cash Converters to see if they’d been traded in, and would buy it back!

Luckily, My boyfriend found out I can buy one online, and my game, holding my Miltank, can somehow work, and get it back.
