Pikachu necklace

This is a handmade, by me, Pikachu cross stitched necklace. It is on an 18" black velvet cord. It is stitched on plastic canvas, so it is very durable. The back is covered in soft felt. Pikachu measures 2" tall, from top of the ear to bottom of the head.
Cute, fun, and awesome! Take your adorable Pokemon everywhere you go. :)
Interested in having a different Pokemon on a necklace? Send me a message and we'll make it happen.

5th appearance on Mr X Stitch

I love this blog, and I've been fortunate enough to be featured on it 5 times now, as of today. :)
Here's the link.

Battlin' Bellsprout

Another Pokemon! This one in mid-battle. I used satin stitch for the background again. I like how it looks and it's so much faster. :D

The Geekiest Towel In The World

Star Trek: The Next Generation: The Towel. Once I had the idea, I just had to do it. There was no room for the Crushers. (Sorry, Bev and Wes!) I have the pattern as a PDF if anyone would like it. Even geeks need to wash their hands...

My vintage sailor girl

I came across this old line drawing online one day, randomly during an image search. She was so adorable that I just had to stitch her. Her skin is a bit peachier than it appears in the photo. It's pretty much all backstitch and satin stitch. She's in a 7" hoop.
The drawing of her is what I used to make the avatar for the SocialEmbroideryClub. I guess she's kind of our mascot... :D

Latest challenge entry, plus free pattern!

The current challenge at (in the forums) is... hard to explain. Here's an excerpt:

"You have a choice of project types (or you can do both, if you're like that). One type with dimensions of no larger than 32 x 8 (pixels / stitches). One type in a space of any shape from a game, but with something different inside it. There's going to be a limit your entries on this, I don't wanna see more than two of each type from you! That is 4 in total, for those of you who may just be waking up, or going to sleep, or are rubbish at counting. So choose wisely!"

Here is my first entry for the 8 x 32. I call it "The Chicken Strip." :D
The chicken is from Harvest Moon, and the chicks are from Minish Cap.
