Cross Stitch Pattern | Orville & Wilbur | Animal Crossing

Hello everyone!

3 days on the trot for patterns now – it’s a really rough time so I thought I’d share my fan made patterns with you as I love combining my video game and stitching hobby.

I put together Orville & Wilbur, two new NPCs from Animal Crossing and have risen to the top of my favourite Animal Crossing characters!

So here is the preview:

What do you think of the Dodo bros?

If you want to request any characters you think are worth having a go at, let me know! I love providing free patterns for all, especially during these tough times.

Cross Stitch Pattern | Villager, Apple | Animal Crossing

Today I am experimenting with my WinStitch tool (especially in the current climent of lockdown and isolation).

I have started to see if I could make small head shot patterns of my favorite villagers in Animal Crossing.

Starting with my #1 gal, Apple! I tried to simply the colours slightly and I finessed it based off the original picture I had as reference. I ❤ her!

You can download the pattern here if you want to give it a try!

Let me know what you think, would you be interested in picking one up of your favourite villager?

Are there other Animal Crossing / Cross Stitch lovers out there?!

What I read – February 2020

I want to open this blog by saying that I have started a 2020 mini book review thread on my Twitter, feel free to check it out here. 

Annihilation

Rating: ★★

I’ve had this in my collection for quite some time now, both physical and kindle version. Most of my book reading friends told me to jump on it as I would love it and I’m so gutted I put it off for so long. I really enjoyed Annihilation, the twists and turns, the setting, the characters – it was such an intense short read. I am now going to pick up the rest of the books in the series!

Revenge

Rating: ★★

Revenge was right up my street – it was short, crazy and dark in places. The world of Revenge is a bunch of short stories which intertwine within each other, and although they’re short stories it does still feel like this book has a beginning, middle and end. I was thoroughly gripped in every page and have now wishlisted a bunch of Yoko Ogawa books as I adored the writing of this book.

I only read 2 books in Feb due to it being crazy with big family birthdays, leaving my current job AND I’m midway through two books I’ll be popping full reviews up for 🙂

What did you read in Feb?
