Scavenger Quest Stitchy Starts

#1

Post by Sirithre »

Setting
Every now and then, you have the opportunity to welcome a new guild member to the fold. Your favourite way to welcome newcomers is to share your oldest project. You find the first piece you ever completed, tucked away just where you left it. Examining the clumsy stitches, you smile at the memories – the first time you poked your finger with the needle, had to frog a project, gave up and tossed something aside in frustration, and the first time you finished a piece. Sharing these moments reminds you of where you started in your stitchy journey, and how far you’ve come.

Story next


Your Quest
Whether you’re new to cross stitch or a seasoned stitcher, find either your first or oldest stitchy project.
Reflect on where you started, and where you’re at now. Has it become easier? Have you learned new skills since then? Do you have some advice you would share with your past self or those new to cross stitch?

If you still have your project on-hand, snap a picture and share it with us! If not, but you still have an old photo that's fine too. Or just find the pattern/kit you started with online if you can! If not, describe it to us as best you can.


Turn In
All done? Reply here with a photo of your project. If possible, please include a direct link to the pattern you used.

If you did this quest back in July 2021 on the discord feel free to re-submit the piece you did then, a new one, or both!

"Stitch starts
So I’ve got three answers to this quest. The first is the first stitch piece I got, I started it when I was 6ish and finally finished it when I was 24.
My first cross stitch piece was this sundae kit which I don’t still have the finished stitch from. I did it when I was 18 to relax from final exams.
Last I have the mermaid kit which is what got me into cross stitch properly, I got it after I finished the long stitch and didn’t know what to do with myself"

I just love a good Vine reference I guess.
I don't remember what I was searching for on Etsy that led to that listing but I was like, it's $3, materials are $20 at most, why not?

It's almost been 3 years and thousands of dollars spent, all from that one impulse decision. Wouldn't trade it for the world.

My first ever stitch started in April 2019 and finished October 2019. I got the sprite for the Windfish in Zelda: Link’s Awakening and put it into an online pattern generator. Only a handful of colors, full crosses (although I backstitched the outline to make it look like a clean pixel art), and plain white 16ct aida so a nice easy way to begin. I finished it at a time where I felt like I never finished anything. It’s the only hobby that’s stuck around for more than a few months.

Ahhh!
Link's Awakening is my favorite zelda. :surprised:
I love that your first stitch was a windfish!
