Stitching Quest Topsy Turvy

#1

Post by Sirithre »

Setting
The first whispers of spring are finally reaching Stitchwind, and you decide to take advantage of it. You wander the market, having discarded your heavy winter cloak.

The city is coming alive with the change of seasons too. Shops opened their doors, welcoming shoppers to view their wares.

You soon find yourself in a cute little second hand shop. Many of your fellow guild members have told you of treasures they’ve found in such shops. You figured you’d check it out for yourself.

As you browse the shelves, you come across a small, half finished project. You don’t know the story behind it, but you don’t have the heart to leave it behind half done.

You purchase the piece and return home.

As you settle down to get to work, you realize the original stitcher did their crosses differently to you. From your time with the guild, you knew switching it up would be obvious.

You know it won’t be easy, but you decide to change your style to ensure the consistency of the project.


Your Quest
Your quest this time is wide open to interpretation. You can stitch any pattern you desire. The only requirement is that you stitch your Xs differently than normal. This will probably slow you down, so pick something *small* to work on.

If you normally cross your stitches the same way, aka always the \ leg on top. Then do the opposite, and stitch the \ first and then /.

If you normally don't pay attention to the way you cross your stitches, try keeping them all uniform this time.

It sounds simple enough, right? You'll be surprised how much concentration it takes to break a habit. :wink: It should force you to slow down for a bit and really pay attention to each stitch. You might also be surprised at how differently the texture of a piece can seem just by switching the top stitch.

Turn In
All done? Reply here with a photo of your finished piece, and a sentence or two about what you learned from this exercise, or how easily you took to the change. If possible, please include a direct link to the pattern you used.

If you did this quest back in April 2020 on the discord feel free to re-submit the piece you did then, stitch a new one, or both!

Once you've turned in your project, please wait patiently. A council member will assign you the appropriate item soon. :)

Example! I did this back in 2020 for this Topsy Turvy quest.

....and that took twice as long as usual! I turned my topsy turvy egg into a needle minder.
I normally stitch / then \.
So I started with \ this time and my brain hurt by the end of it.

I did just a simple yoshi egg with the Cosmo 9016 rainbow variegated thread.
The pattern is free on my Ko-Fi :biggrin:
