Monochrome cross stitch pattern:  
So, one of my best friends is pregnant with her second baby (I can hardly believe it-I know she wants three kids, but her daughter isn't one yet!! Nonetheless, she's a fabulous mom and I'm thrilled for her.) and with her first, little Miss Micah (who is the cutest thing ever) had a nursery based on the original Mario game. Jessica and her husband chose that as a nursery theme so that they could use the nursery for the next baby/babies to come along, whether they were boys or girls. I made a Mario themed cross stitch for Micah's room when she was in the Mario room, and now she's moving up into her "big girl" room, which is going to be Zelda themed (my friends are dorks...we all are...what can I say?), I did a quick internet search and found this AMAZING woman who has all sorts of geeky inspired patterns (not just for cross stitch), and she has an AMAZING Zelda pattern that I've been working on for Miss Micah's new bedroom as of late...

Don't worry, as soon as we have a name and confirmation of boy/girl on the second baby, I'll get started on something for them too; but I needed something to occupy my time until then.

My only problem is that it's a monochrome pattern-At least, that's what this lady refers to this pattern as; which I think just means it's done in one color and one color only, and frankly, I'M SO TIRED OF PINK and I'm not even halfway done yet!! (Anyone else ever do a monochrome pattern and have this issue?)

But it's gonna be cute nonetheless.

So without further aidu; here's Zelda...or the bottom half of her, anyway:

And here's the pattern:

And this is the website where I found it and other nifty geeky patterns to print FOR FREE:

It's her blog, so be sure to use the tags if there's something you're specifically looking for-That's how I found the Zelda pattern. :)

(Probably gonna be cross posted too....)

I had that problem when I was working on a project that wasn't monochrome, but I decided to only work with one color palate at a time (NEVER AGAIN I SAY!)

But it looks good so far and I hope to see it when it's done!! :D

Pretty sure David Tennant is the definition of sexy geek. ;)

Amen to that. :D

I've never cross-stitched, but I definitely had this problem when knitting. I was using emerald green yarn, and it didn't even have color variation. Just that one shade of green.

I never did finish that scarf....

I used to do alot of blackwork... you kinda get used to it after awhile.
I would stitch from one side (to make it go twice as fast!), and play games... Pretend I'm a dot-matrix printer... Pretend I'm playing reverse Breakout... make each row compete with each other for highest % black/white.

I have watched A LOT of TV. I don't even normally watch TV, but Big Bang Theory and House have been my bestest friends during this...

I made it through the majority of Xena while working on my last project. We moved and I canned it and reworked the pattern, so now I'm watching Buffy since Xena is still MIA from the move.

I watched Firefly & Serenity during my last project :)

I've gotten into Lost Girl as of recently, but have rarely remembered to watch it when it comes on, and I just don't want enough TV to pay for tivo.

As an edited reply to this...One of my friends just got the first and second seasons of Lost Girl on DVD from Canada (where it is apparently entering it's third season) and has agreed to allow me to watch them! SCORE!!!

(I'm also hoping to talk him into letting me borrow his copies of several sdeasons of Doctor Who....But SHHH. I haven't asked him yet!!)

Yep. Anything with good dialogue that you don't have to keep an eye on to follow.
Buffy is also good to craft along to. And Glee.
I had a 3 hour daily commute at that time too... I got travel-stitchen down to a fine art - standing up on the train, post office queue, doctors office waiting room. -> this was before mobiles could speak to the internet, so it was a brilliant way to spend dead time.

I'm not a Glee fan-I tried to watch it several times, but just couldn't get into it. But, I have discovered that Charmed works, well, like a charm for me!!

Thanks so much for sharing! My daughter has just been working on cross stitching and will dig these!

Forward her the link because there's SOOO much other stuff on there, from anime patterns to other video game things, and general awesome geekiness like Firefly and Big Bang Theory.
