NP: Mission UK - Severina

I thought I had left the giant chicken in a rental car I had after a minor car accident (not my fault) put my own car in the shop. But I found it, floating around my closet, and got back to work on it. And here's where it stands:

I'll estimate that I've got about 20-30 hours of background stitching left before it's finished. That's a lot of boredom ahead. I may start in with a few other needlepoint projects to keep me sane.

Because I'm moving in less than a month, I'm mostly in limbo. I don't want to start any long term projects or finish any bulky ones that will just contribute to the pain in the ass that is moving. That means my perler bead Megaman will probably lie in pieces for at least a month longer.

Here's a few ideas I may or may not carry out after I move:

- A complete series of The Shining Force in my usual framed needlepoint

- Topiary

- Video Game Quilts

- Needlework Pillows (I finally found a place that carries tapestry wool)

- Automata


  1. *votes for the video game quilt!*

    Quilting is a lot of fun. I would say it's time consuming but it seems like cross-stitching is the mother of all time consuming craft work.

    good luck with moving... it's pretty stressful because there is a million things going on at the same time. You can do it through! *cheers you on*

  2. I'm moving from Houston to Wisconsin and I haven't been around truly cold weather for about 7 years - so making lots and lots of quilts will be tempting.
