I'm 21 and British. I cross stitch. It's either Pokemon or Tolkien, two things which have absolutely nothing in common except for the fact that they are both AMAZING.

Apparently I do commissions now, so if you're interested, or you want to buy any of my finished stuff, just message me!

I knew this day would come again. Um. I got Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call and it is beautiful and amazing and far exceeds any hopes I had for it. And that has reignited my need to play some Final Fantasy.

So, since I unfortunately cannot play videogames and cross stitch at the same time no i haven’t attempted to do this at all ever I’m going to have to give a hiatus warning. Uni has also started back up, meaning my free time is a lot more limited.

If I do get off my arse and do productive things, I shall obviously post them! It’s not an official hiatus or anything. I just thought I’d give some warning, for anyone who cares :)

tl;dr f-ennekins is final fantasy trash.

I’ve read halfway and somehow kinda forgot about it. But yeah, will totally try to finish it :)

I feel like I am the sole campaigner to get the Silmarillion fandom to read Discworld. But I don’t care. I will carry on! Until I get my crossover where Fëanor teams up with Granny Weatherwax

Aw darn, all your works reminded me that I really have to finish reading this book!

You need to read ALL the Discworld. EVERYONE needs to read all the Discworld!

Done! The quote is from Guards! Guards! and is the most accurate description of dragons I have ever come across :D

So this is technically part of the Tolkien relevant Discworld series, though it can really apply to any series with dragons. I was thinking Smaug for this one, for obvious reasons.

The colour used is DMC 4130 (Chilean Sunset), and the alphabet is from here. The border is mine.

I’m happy with how this turned out. It’s simple, but the variegated always ensures that nothing ever looks too boring. I also really think that the colours work well with the quote.

As always, if you’ve got anything to say, don’t hesitate to say it!

I love this quote :D It’s from Guards! Guards! and basically sums up my feelings on dragons (I think it might be a Vimes quote. Def seems like one).

Another of my Tolkien relevant Discworld series, this time for Maglor. The quote is from Soul Music, and when I read this quote recently, all I could think was - this is Maglor. Maglor is this quote.

The alphabet is from here, but the border is mine. There are two colours used, DMC 4030 (Monet’s Garden) and 4040 (Water Lilies). As always, I used 18 count aida.

I’m really happy with this! The colours are nice and vibrant yet subdued enough for the quote.

As always, feedback is lovely!

No one asked for this at all, but I just got my corkboard up to date, so here. Yes, those are ladybird pins :D

Now I get to feel my head visibly expand every time I gaze upon my own work. Soon I won’t be able to fit through doors! But damn that Oath is amazing nothing will ever get me down in regards to that :D

The thing about words is that meaning can twist just like a snake, and if you want to find snakes look for them behind words that have changed their meaning.
No one ever said elves are nice.
Elves are bad.

Finished! AND the lighting was good for this photo!

This quote is from Lords and Ladies by Terry Pratchett, and is part of a series that I’m doing with Tolkien relevant Discworld quotes.

I’m so happy with how this turned out! One thing that does annoy me is that I didn’t leave as much aida bordering the design as I would usually like to leave, but that’s not really something that I can change now. Another problem is that the darker areas of text can occasionally be hard to read on the black aida, but this would be the same with light areas on white aida. It’s something to look into!

The alphabet is from here, and the border is my own design, which I really like.

I love the colours on this. For the text from top to bottom we have DMC 4214 (Cotton Candy), 4215 (Northern Lights), 4250 (Berry Parfait), 4211 (Azalea), 4212 (Mixed Berries) and 4205 (Caliente). The border is done in 4205 and 4215.

As usual, any feedback is really good!

THIS IS SO COOL. I love this quote, and your stitching is lovely - if I had any feedback, it’s that the darker text can be kind of hard to read.

Ah, thankyou! Yeah, unfortunately while it is nowhere near as bad irl as in the picture, it is still a problem. So I think next time I’ll try to solve this :)

So on Friday, we were playing Cards Against Arda (found here I believe), and some discussion led to writing down a load of ideas for a possible expansion pack. So I made it :D

This contains ideas from kanafinwhy, xredriverx, markedasinfernal, hereff and myself, written on the back of an envelope and various receipts.

I can’t wait to actually play it!

|| DISCWORLD ELVES MAN

I KNOW!!! there needs to be more silm/discworld crossovers just so I can live my lifelong dream of having Fëanor and Granny Weatherwax team up and take on EVERYTHING.

I LOVE THIS QUOTE SO MUCH. I LOVE THIS SERIES SO MUCH.

I’m trying to do a series of Tolkien relevant Discworld quotes because there are a LOT.

So here, have a wip. This quote is from Lords and Ladies by Terry Pratchett. All the text is now finished. I really debated using a different alphabet, but all the others simply didn’t have the look I was going for, or took up too much space. So I used this one again. I am terrible, but it is comfortable now :D

I’m really happy with the colours on this one. In order, from top to bottom we have DMC 4214 (Cotton Candy), 4215 (Northern Lights), 4250 (Berry Parfait), 4211 (Azalea), 4212 (Mixed Berries) and 4205 (Caliente).

I was trying to get a ‘bleeding to red’ sort of effect, and I think it turned out awesome :D

As usual, I’d love feedback!

xredriverx:

You know when Silmarillion people meet up, shenanigans will ensue!
These are some of the best combinations that came up during some of our Cards Against Arda games!
Thank kanafinwhy, markedasinfernal, f-ennekins and hereff for the hilarity! XD

This was so much fun! I can’t pick a favourite :D

Finished! Along with my Fëanorian Bingo Card! Woohoo!

So this quote is from the Silmarillion, credit to here for the alphabet. All done in DMC 4122 (Fall Harvest). I decided to keep the border really simple because the colour speaks for itself, and I didn’t want a repeat of the Miriel disaster!

And now for some links.

Text is done for the twins :) You know the drill, alphabet from here, quote from the Silmarillion, done for the bingo. Colour used is DMC 4122 (Fall Harvest). I wanted to go for a naturey look without it being green, and the colour is SO PRETTY.
