After finding SpriteStitch, a place to show off my geeky cross stitch, which I later made a SpriteStitch banner cross stitch for, I started in earnest creating cross stitch patterns. The first idea I had was to make a simple screenshot. But then I realized how huge that would be.
But undeterred I kept playing on emulators until I found this game. It was called Fire n Ice as it as an American ROM, but for us, European’s it’s called Soloman’s Key 2, originally for the SNES. I fell in love straight away. Its premise for a game is simple; you melt the ice away to solve a puzzle. I wanted to stitch something up that was as simple to this premise as possible and finally picked a pyramid design to fit into a standard photo frame.
When I finished it, I put it in a frame and stuck it up on the wall. It’s since had a few places to live, but it always stayed in its frame. This, thanks to the sun, caused some problems though, as I never washed my cross stitch back then. I’ve since learned my lesson, but it’s still in its frame, on my window sill.

I had actually hoped to create some more Fire n Ice patterns, but as time went on, I found larger and larger projects, and never went back.
