Sprite Stitch

Disclaimer: I know NOTHING about gaming. To me online games are digital evolutions of word games: Boggle, Scrabble, etc. My video game skills will not see me advance beyond the first screen of Ms PacMan. Confronted with an arcade, I head straight to air hockey. I have never Wii’d or Guitar Heroe’d or Rock Star’d.

That does not mean, however, I cannot appreciate some of the amazing work over at Sprite Stitch. Originally started as a site to share cross stitch patterns of video game characters, Sprite Stitch has evolved into a gallery of craft techniques with gaming motifs. This includes, knitting, quilting, felting, painting, silk screen, cake decorating and more.

How do you have time  to do both needlework and gaming?
