A Link (Stitch) to the Past

So for the past couple of weeks I’ve been obsessed with cross-stitching video game images.

What started as a perusal of the Subversive Cross Stitch pool on Flickr quickly morphed into an obsessive exploration of the Geek Craft pool, and an introduction to the SpriteStitch blog and forums. There, I discovered instructions on how to cross-stitch my very own video game images. After much debate and deliberation, I chose the title screen for Zelda: A Link to the Past.

I really want to do a cool Chrono Trigger cross-stitch, with all the characters from the game in the portal of time, but I have to go and take a screenshot of that when I play through the game again. There’s also a Super Mario composition in the works, what with items and pipes and Yoshi and coins to consider! I’ve got a few picture frames perfect for some small Nintendo icons as well.

If you guys have any suggestions (or screenshots!) you’d like to see me do, feel free to send ’em my way!
