Behold Mario!

I did play the Mario games when I was a kid. I forgot which version though. A bit of each I think. Except for the rpg kind. You know, making these cross stitches made me feel kind of nostalgic.



Btw, I didn't intend to have a red theme for the cross-stitches from the beginning. It simply happens. Started from the red mushroom. Then the red bug. Next is the shyguy. And lastly, the little Mario. Yup, I like the chibi Mario better. They're so cute.

Below here, are two of the Mario patterns I've made. I'm posting them here especially for you, as part of my graduation celebration. I didn't have time to make them yet, so if you've made either one or both of the patterns, please let me know.

Enjoy!


Skin = 754 Peach Flesh LT
Clothes = 900 Burnt Orange DK
310 Black


Skin = 754 Peach Flesh LT
Clothes = 3777 Terra Cotta VY DK

Forgive me please Melisa! I retired from blogging as I am so busy these days - but I couldn't resist and posted again tonight! Thank you for your generosity! It's delightful to get back here and see what you've been doing!

We can never be too old for games right Lenni?

And Ben, I'm glad to see you back. I knew you would.
