I'm so Dizzy, my head is spinning.

I've mostly been too busy to do National Art Making Month ([livejournal.com profile] naarmamo) this year, but did manage some cross-stitch and a collage.
Here's some cross stitches I did a few weeks ago:

Kickstart

This is part of an Amiga kickstart screen, that appears when you first turn on an Amiga and haven't put a disk in. I made this to wear to the Amiga's 30th anniversary celebration in Peterborough.

Here are some lemmings:

I completed the SF0 task: Make It Soft, by cross-stitching another QR code:

"Make it soft," I read, and concluded:

This task must be softer: soft as mashed potato, soft as candyfloss, soft as a cuddly Cthulhu.

Like many other great and noble players who have completed this task, I turned to the softness of fabric and thread.

After learning to cross-stitch space invaders and Pac-Man ghosts a few months ago, I learnt to cross-stitch QR codes, by initially following some of the instructions from Instructables: QR code cross-stitch patch.

I started sewing it while at the Royal Festival Hall, in London. I was at a [livejournal.com profile] theladiesloos meet, and one of the people there was cross-stitching a bug, and the other was altering a zombie-related t-shirt so that it would fit her better.

A girl, a teenage girl, told me what I was sewing was cool.

A group of people started singing and I caught the word, "hell". I presumed they were singing a religious song, telling me I was going to hell, but no, it turned out they were protesting against Shell.

On day 19 of [livejournal.com profile] naarmamo, I spent some time creating a pattern for a QR code cross-stitch.

I followed (some of) the instructions from here: Instructables: QR Code Cross Stitch.

What I did to create the pattern:
1. Generated a QR code using a QR code generator.
2. Opened it in GIMP and added a grid. The hardest part of creating the pattern was making the squares line up in the grid properly, so I actually ended up creating a new grid and filling each square in it myself. Then I printed it.

It does actually work as a QR code in real life, so I am happy. Although perhaps I should actually put some content on the website that it links to..
