Date Completed: February 2011
Design: Lord Libidan
Count: 14
Canvas: White
Colours: 10
Video Game: Fallout 3 & Fallout: New Vegas

I love Fallout 3, and I had just finished New Vegas too, so wanted to do something fallout related, I’d seen a few vault boys around but none of them were good enough in my eyes, or whole, so I had to make my own pattern.

Soils of Dig Dug

Date Completed: February 2011
Design: Lord Libidan
Count: 14
Canvas: Black
Colours: 12
Video Game: Dig Dug

I did soil science at uni, and saw old school posters about soil all the time, and I wanted to really capture that, but with Dig Dug. It came out exactly how I wanted it to, but it only really makes any sense to me πŸ˜› Although that didn’t stop it getting its own post on Mr X Stitch: Link

3D Transforming Optimus Prime Cross Stitch

Optimus 1
Title: 3D Transforming Optimus Prime
Date Completed: August 2010
Design: Lord Libidan/Paper Robots 1999
Count: 14
Canvas: Plastic
Colours: 6
Show: Transformers

After fiddling around with plastic canvas, I wanted to do something a little different, and to push boundaries a little. I always loved fiddling with my brothers generation 1 transformer toys and it started from there. Its based on the original toy series, so transforms into a Peterbilt style semi-tractor.
It uses wire (paper clips) to move the joints.
This is my best piece in my mind so far, and have started making a second transformer Jetfire, and have plans for Soundwave and Starscream which can be found on my etsy.
Its now been featured on:
Mr X Stitch: Link
Gamespy
Reddit: Link
And won Penny Nickels Contest: Link
If you look out for Cross Stitch Crazy Magazine, I will be published in their March issue!

You can buy this pattern on my Etsy shop and many other transformers, so go have a look! LINK

The World Of Tomorrow Cross Stitch

World Of Tomorrow
Title: The World Of Tomorrow
Date Completed: June 2010
Design: Lord Libidan
Count: 14
Colours: 7

One of my major interests is retro futurism, and art of the era, and I wanted to make a pattern which sort of holds the enthusiasm that was around at the time. I have made larger patterns, which I think look a lot better and have that real retro art deco poster feel to them, which are on my list of projects to stitch, but sadly I keep getting new patterns in my head and it gets pushed further and further back.
