It's finally time for the A to Z Challenge Theme reveal!
This year for the challenge, I am going to be cross stitching two of my alphabet patterns, and sharing my progress each day for each letter, as well as any thoughts I have about the character/figure.
The patterns I've chosen are:
The Supernatural Alphabet and
The Pokémon Alphabet.
My choices were based on a number of things
- The Pokémon pattern should be fairly easy to stitch in an evening as the figures do not involve any backstitch or fractional stitches - whole stitches all the way.
- The Supernatural one has a lot of simple figurines - as in most of the characters are just wearing jeans and a t-shirt, rather than long flowing dresses with several colour changes (like the Amidala patterns) - which also means they should be fairly straight forward stitching-wise.
- The Supernatural pattern is a new one to my design catalogue and I haven't had a chance to test-stitch it yet!
- I've been living with two of my brothers for the last couple of months. They are into Supernatural and Pokémon, and I thought these might be good additions to their unit - make it look a little less uni-student-ish
The Pokemon patterns is available from my Etsy Store if you wanted to get your own copy and stitch along.
The Supernatural Alphabet should be up on my Etsy store this weekend. I was hoping to have it up before today, but I moved house last week (more on that later) and am still waiting for the internet to be connected. No internet means no new Etsy patterns. I'm visiting my parents this weekend so will have internet and be able to load the pattern. Promise.
The Supernatural pattern and Pokemon patterns - starting phase
I have been cheating a little bit and have already started stitching the alphabets so I don't fall too far behind!
Because I'm a bit of a sucker for punishment, I am also going to be writing a second blog over at Travel Like A Geek. This is my other blog, where I am planning on sharing various adventures and geek-related travel ideas/plans. On that blog, my theme is going to be an A to Z travel guide to the locations used in the Harry Potter films.
There's still time to join the A to Z challenge - head on over to www.a-to-zchallenge.com for the details.
I'm looking forward to having you all join me for this crazy ride, visiting your blogs, discovering new friends and like-minded individuals.
