Day 2 of the #britishstitchers
week Instagram challenge: fave ever make
As an 80s child I have great nostalgia for old school computer games having had a BBCB computer growing up. My favourite game was Chuckie Egg and I realised that with the 8bit graphics, it would be easy to convert to cross stitch. Ok, it wasn’t as easy as I thought but the work to get the pattern right was worth it. After doing level 1 for me, my brother asked for one for him so I did this one especially for him - including his date of birthday as the score. I’ve since done one for Pac-Man, Donkey Kong (another request from my brother) and have a pattern ready for Space Invaders. Got lots of other ideas up my sleeve, just need the time to sit down and work on them.
